I’ve always wanted to own a military jacket, but I always think I’m just not edgy and stylish enough. I know that it’s a bit of an odd statement to say, being a blogger and all. HAI I DO FASHION BLOG BUT I’M NOT STYLISH LOLZ.
This is why I say ‘personal style blog posts’ and not ‘fashion post’.
What I mean, exactly, is that I’m not really ‘cool’. I’ve never been cool. Not even once in my whole life. I’m way to awkward and creepy. Cool is the last word that you could describe me as. Even if I try really hard to say something smooth, I stutter or say the wrong word or mess up the punch line or fall over or.. you get the picture. I just make an arse of myself. So I just don’t bother.
Anyway, military jackets are cool and it’s always been the type of clothing I admire from a distance. Like playsuits and those massive shoes with metal spikes on the heals. I like them, but they’re not really me and I would look like massive dick trying to pull them off.
I’m all about dresses. Floral pretty dresses. Which is what I go for half of the time. Actually, all the time.
When I got this military jacket from The City Rack, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. It kind of felt like one of those things I would wear in secret but not actually in public for fear of people looking at me and think ‘Girlfriend she thinks she can pull of that style? Hell no!’
So you can imagine how surprised I was when I put this baby on and it looked like this! I was all LIKE LIKE LIKE RETWEET LIKE in my head.
Now I’m excited for the evenings to get a bit cooler so I wear this.
What trends do you love but are too scared to attempt?
