WIW: Military Slouch

This outfit may seem a bit dark and dreary for early summer, but it suits the kind of weather we're having and I think I've added warm weather "bits" by scrunching the sleeves and wearing the shoes with bare feet.

I started today's outfit with my black slouchy trousers and a simple black tank. On top of that, I added my military-inspired olive green jacket. I then added the two-tone olive Fluevogs and my olive/cream snakeskin satchel. A gold watch and wedding ring finished off the outfit.

What do you think? Early summer enough looking or too heavy? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Jacket: Miley Cyrus (thrifted)
Tank: Cleo Petite
Trousers: Joe Fresh
Shoes: Fluevog (gift from Suz)
Handbag: Elliott Lucca
Watch: thrifted

    the jacket is great! love the military look.
    i wouldn't wear this in the middle of the summer, but it feels right for the early still cool days, and it will be a great fall transitional outfit.

    Big thumbs up, especially with the Fluevogs and bag.

    Nice! The bare feet and bag are nice touches.

    I think it's a great outfit!  I never worry all that much about summer vs. winter colors.  There's no reason that all your dark outfits have to be saved for winter.  If it's suitable for the weather and your mood, then I think it's appropriate.

    Yup, what Sara said.  I usually WANT to head into lighter, brighter colours at this time of year, but when it's so freaking dreary....  :(

    I think your outfit looks fab!

    Great outfit once again Shannon!  Great look for a dreary day.

    The Fluevogs and bag really amp it up. You look terrific!

    KILLER to the power of KILLER

    There is no stopping your sizzling style quotient, Shannon. Good grief!!!

    K2K rating? Where's "my" crash helmut.....
  • Beth Ann replied 11 years ago
    Well, it's hard to top a K2K with a mere comment, but this is a very sophisticated and pleasing outfit, Shannon.  Modern, trending pieces that don't seem "trendy" when put together in such a sleek mix.

    This outift would work well with a white on white base in place of the black on black, too!

    This is gorgeous. Black should be worn 365 days a year:)

    I think it's very summer, in an Indiana Jones sort of way.    LOVE!
  • Sveta replied 11 years ago
    Technically it is still spring, right? :-)
    Who cares if colors are summery or not if you look so sophisticated and chic? I don't!
    I think I need a military jacket in my life...

    Great outfit, I love the shoes and bag!
  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    I like this combo a lot. The jacket is very flattering and the neckline looks so fab on you. The shoes add just the right amount of interest too. Lovely!
