Worth the Wait

An olive "military style" jacket. I feel like they have been all the rage the past couple seasons! And I have to agree, they are mighty cute. I was on the hunt for one for a very long time. I had my eyes on one from Nordstrom, but at $70 I just couldn't bear to click the 'purchase' button!! I am such a cheapskate! A few weeks later, I saved up some money and when I went to look, it was sold out. Womp womp. My bad. I knew that another cute green jacket would come along, so I waited patiently.

Then, a few weeks ago when I ambled into Aeropostale, my cute clothes radar went off. Hanging on the rack was one of the cutest green jackets I've seen! I adore the color, the little aztecy detail, and the back. Oh, the back! It's so pretty! It's on MEGA sale so don't you dare miss out if you love it just as much as I do! For size reference, I got an XS and it's still a little big on me, normally I would say I am a small. This striped top is also from Aeropostale (also on mega sale). It's soft, and again for size reference I actually got a size large in the top, because I wanted a looser fit. I love Aeropostale! When I started being clothes-minded around the seventh or eighth grade, this was the place I would shop with my friends! Abercrombie and Hollister were too expensive, but Aero always had my back... And they still do!

Thank you so much for reading! Have a lovely day:)
Such a fun little detail!
I think the back is my favorite part!!!

Now THAT is such a cute jacket!! Makes me want to go get one :-) It's a great color for you as well.

I love how your posts encourage me to want to dress outside my own little "box" lol.....I'm trying to get more creative with how I dress and you make me want to try new styles!!!

Wow, that's such an interesting piece! I bought a green military jacket last season and it's one of my all time favorite items!!!

What a cute jacket! The back is definitely my favorite part too. I love how it kind of looks like a sweater. :)

xo Always, Abby

Very cute!! I do like that style of jacket! Aeropostale is my husband's favorite store...seeing as he's nearly 30, maybe it shouldn't be, but they actually stock short sizes for guys and he likes that! :P

Simple, casual, and cute! I like that the jacket has a little something extra and is a little more unique than most green utility jackets. And on sale for $23? Score! :)

I love when that happens!! Cheaper is always better in my opinion.

I've been wanting a military jacket for a long time too - this one is really cute and it looks great on you, but I'm not sure it's the right one for me. So I guess I'll keep looking! Love this whole outfit.
