I’m with the band / Military Inspired Jacket
I’ve been infatuated with the french style military band jacket for years now. I remember last year dragging john all around Paris from vintage store to vintage store in search of an authentic one. Ok, I have no idea what you call these.. I might be totally butchering it but, you know what I mean! That french waist coat military band style. Anywho, I never had any luck. Bleh! A couple seasons ago I started noticing them popping up more and more everywhere.
As much as I desperately want a vintage one, I don’t think I will ever get lucky enough to find an authentic one (never say never though.. right? ). I love this beaded detailed military jacket I found at Freepeople. John got it for me as a gift when he saw how excited I was I found this one on the site. It goes amazing with blue denim, but I have been in love with high waisted black jeans as of late so I wore it this time like this. Will definitely be wearing this a lot this season as I transition into the awkward hot/cold confused days to spring.
By the way, Im back from my Wedding/Honeymoon in Hawaii and I couldn’t get up this morning! I was in Hawaii long enough to wake up confused this morning as to why the ocean wasn’t outside my sliding door. No joke.. took me a second to re-adjust and realize I was back in my SD home. It feels nice though. I get to come home to another vacation type place. Not too shabby at all.
