FORTY-FIVE/ camouflage

My blog content has been lacking lately and the truth is that nothing in my wardrobe has been exciting me. Maybe it's fact that the weather has been to hot, humid and rainy to wear anything or maybe it's the fact that I haven't gone shopping in what seems like forever. Getting dressed in the summer always seems like the biggest chore for me because I have to take several factors into consideration. First of all, how hot will it be? What about the humidex? Is it going to rain? Will I be out until late, because it gets so much cooler in the evening. If it's hot, I need to wear cotton or another fabric that breathes. Can I wear shorts? Should I wear a dress, if so, what about chaffing? The list of questions goes on and on and when I finally reach the end of that checklist I'm running late and just throw on whatever I see first. It's a nasty cycle.

With all that being said, I find myself gravitating towards this camouflage jacket more often than not when it's a bit chillier outside. I know the piece is probably the biggest blogger cliche right now but I still adore it. The absolute most important thing to me when it comes to picking out what to wear is how I feel in a piece and this jacket makes me feel like a bad ass. Other than that factor, I love how it's cotton and I can roll up the sleeves. All of the colours on this jacket can be matched with pretty much any other colour but obviously I chose all black. I've been stupid lately and I've been wearing my Dr. Marten boots in 40+ degree weather but I switched it up for this post and wore my Doc shoes instead; they really show off the ankle length and the skinniness of the jeans while rescuing my ankles from the heat. I polished it all off with some of my favourite gold-tone accessories.

  1. Love it. I recently bought a genuine army jacket from a carboot market but I haven't worn it yet. I was thinking of sewing some spikes on it or painting something on the back!
