I have always had my eyes on the faded olive green military jackets that often graced the walls of Banana Republic stores during spring/summer time.
Somehow, however, I never got myself to actually making that purchase. A key reason will be the exorbitant (in my opinion) prices that often accompanied these jackets. Well, when I saw this particular one heavily reduced and at a fraction of its original price, I decided to give in. With Banana Republic, I have learnt it is pretty much a crime to buy their items at full prices. Very frequently, they reduce their prices and then have 40% -50% sales off these reduced prices.
The weather here in Calgary has been funky,… we’re definitely done with winter but not quite seated in Spring yet. In comes this jacket that makes for a perfect layering item. With this jacket, I am forced to wear about 3 or more layers, which is great since I am that girl who is always cold, yet always underestimates how cold the weather truly is.
Its muted green/ faded olive green look makes it a good pair with neutrals as well as a wide spectrum of other colours. And though, I’m not one for trends, I really like its bell sleeves.
What are your thoughts on military jackets? I will tell you, Femi does not get the appeal. 🙂 Let me know if you are with him on this one.
