military in navy



I love pairing navy and black.
Even if it 'technically' doesn't match.  In my book it does.


This military style coat from ShopKempt is one of my new favorites.  Tailored with brass button details.  It's the perfect piece to layer on top of a feminine look to add some edge without looking too hard.

Coats might be the only part of winter I don't hate.

Hmmm...I think my overall impression of that outfit is that you are short. Isn't that fence in the background about two feet tall?

I really love this outfit, and like how you mixed the blue and black. I'm really impressed that those booties are from Target!

I have a coat similar to that minus the buttons and you have inspired me to dress mine up more than I usually do! Thanks for the inspiration-here from WIWW.

Hey Nicole,

Hope all is well! Good to see you're doing more fashion posts and you are getting better and better with each post (photography, background setting, posing, etc).

When will those booties from NYC make an appearance? :o)

Cheers,
Grace

I am obsessed with mixing black and blue too! Probably to make up for all those times I was told it was not allowed!

I've been pairing navy and black a lot lately. I love this coat, it is very Kate Middleton-ish.

I love black and navy together. I used to feel the same way as you, but my coworker introduced me to the color combo and I've been in love with it ever since.
