I have to say that some of my favorite looks usually combine masculine and feminine elements. Today I decided to keep riding the fall military trend but with a few modifications of my own.

I have to say that I love the result. The tough Military boots with the olive green trousers made me feel powerful, but the lace reminded me of a prim and proper “can’t do no harm” girlie girl. And of course the beige fur vest on top made me feel like a rock star more than anything else. For work I opted for the fitted blazer instead. I thought perhaps fur might be too much for the office, but I might change my mind about that soon. Which look do you prefer?

I’m starting to read a lot about the spring trends, but considering it’s 20 degrees outside and snowing, I think for now (and probably for a while) I will continue to stay loyal to the fall/winter trends. Remember layering is key…especially in the wonderful Midwest, and a great red lip doesn’t hurt either.

Oh and P.S. if you work in a more serious office environment than mine and wanted to make this look even more “office appropriate” complete the outfit with nude heels instead. I would have…but again not in this weather…

Have a good night/day!
