Tough love...







As I've mentioned before, I've always loved a mix of tough, masculine pieces with fun, flirty, feminine pieces.
I believe, a forest green military/utility jacket is the perfect way of adding some tough love to any fall outfit!
This jacket is light enough for those pleasantly cold days of fall and can be worn in many different ways- buttoned up, belted or just throw 'em on!
I thought the color palette of moss green, burnt orange and rich caramel is so apt for this season. Honestly, I, myself, am a little obsessed with the almost perfect blend of the flirty, feminine pieces- the floral printed short skirt, ruffle blouse and orange heels- with the masculine vibe created with the military jacket, broad, worn out, leather belt and the aviators.
Some tough love, indeed!

Tell me, do you like mixing masculine and feminine pieces in an outfit?

Today I'm linking up with  The Pleated Poppy  for her What I Wore Wednesday and  Rolled Up Pretty  for her Whatever Whenever Wednesday.




                                                                           What I Am Wearing:
                                                                    utility jacket- Old Navy (buy it here)    skirt- H&M    top- The Limited    belt- Fossil
                                                                    bag- Steve Madden    heels- Gianni Binni    aviators and watch- Guess

                                            Thanking you                                                                               Yours fashionably
                                                                                                                                       Juneli
  
P.S: I'm so happy that the 'golden hour' photographs turned out so well . Thanks to the very sweet Lisa of  Expanding     for enlightening me about the right light for better photography and to the beautiful Bessie of  Bravoe Runway  for referring me to her..  Check out Lisa's blog for some great parenting tips.

  4. Mixing girly pieces with edgier/tougher ones always makes for a great look! I have a jacket like this that I love throwing on over skirts and dresses for that exact purpose. This color combo is great and the belt really helps define your waist.
