Yes, sometimes post titles are terrible difficult to come up with. But at least it accurately describes what I am wearing. I also have a somewhat similar blazer that I’ve worn before but this piece is a lot more casual. The cardigan is meant to be worn open in the front but it looks unfinished like that, so I just pinned it at the bottom. I would like to add a chain across the bottom so it’s open about an inch or so. I’ll put that on my long list of projects for “someday.”
I think the cardi works well with this magenta strapless top with side ruching (I’ve worn the top before). The contrast between the military-esque buttons and collar with the bright pink is kinda fun.
My love of certain military-inspired clothing is strictly an aesthetic thing. I like the vintage look it can lend to an outfit, and looking “sharp” is sometimes an interesting contrast my usual style, which is decidedly more romantic.
Do you prefer sharp and crisp styles, or soft and flowing romantic looks?
