great find in DH's closet

Oh I've been busy. But the best part is that not-so-wonderful internship I complained about here is over and I have my Tuesdays and Thursdays all to myself.

So this jacket is a few years old. It's from H&M it belonged to DH I looked at it initially in navy for myself but I'm glad I didn't buy it because I got DH's for free --  albeit a few years later :-) I styled it with my reversible camo skinnies, ON chambray tunic and bronze crossbody bag. Let me know what you think and thanks for looking!

    WOW, exciting! This is definitely a departure from your more ladylike looks, but I think it really works. Your attention to detail and proportions isn't missing here either, and the colors go so well together. Well done! I'm also happy to hear that you have more time on your hands again, it must be a relief.

    Definitely a relief Ingunn -- nothing worse than spending time with people you simply don't enjoy.

    I echo everything the very insightful Ingunn said.  This is a fun departure from your feminine style....and it really works!  That bag is fab as well.

    Congrats on finishing up the internship.  Onward!

    Great camo skinnies!  I looked forever, finally gave up and bought olive ones and now I see them everywhere.  The jacket is great too and you're so lucky that it's the right size.

    Wish my DH has such cool stuff :)  This looks fabulous.  Those skinnies look wonderful on you and I have a very similar denim shirt...hmmmm.  You look gorgeous.

    It's fun to see you in a casual outfit and this one is fabulous. How does DH like his jacket on you? I love the looks together and the way you have stacked the popped collars of tunic and jacket. You are so creative.
    Congratulations on completing the internship.

    Blue and olive/army green - what a great combination! You look wonderful and congratulations on finishing your internship!

    Imagine, you could have been wearing it all this time : ) Love the colors and dashing - courtesy of your husband - silhouette.

    I get such a kick out of your posts, DV. This one speaks to me strongly with its ladylike/ larrikin juxtaposition.

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Joy - DH likes this jacket on me. I think I gave him a few ideas with the olive and denim combination.
  • replied 9 years ago
    Definitely a cahenge from your feminine vibe outfits yet it works so well and you rock it!
  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago
    WOW DV - this works so, so well! I hope hubby won't ask for the jacket back 'cause it looks too darned fab on you. Love it paired with camo.

    Shannon - Nah, he's done with it and he knows he'd have to wrestle it from my cold dead hands ;-)
