Saluting utilitarian fashion!   I jumped at the chance to be a part of #troopjbrand and for such a wonderful cause.   J Brand are donating $100 to the Downtown Women’s Shelter for everyone posting their look.   I couldn’t stop at one piece however, so I went the double for my take on the utility look.   This skirt is truly amazing, fits like a glove and the vest is spunked up with drawstring ties that create volume and shape when tweaked.

Bless military green.   It never ceases to amaze me how this divine shade comes and goes in much shorter cycles than most colour trends.   A military green trend happens every few years.   We all need green at times and this earthy, almost neutral hue is easy on the eye and easy for most to wear.   I hope you stay a little while pretty thing.

There’s something so appealing about wearing volume of this size, the bigger the better in my books.   Proportions like these give you an enormous presence, a certain character and make a real statement.   You simply can’t deny it.

Dresses and skirts worn over pants were big about ten years ago (maybe more).   The look disappeared until recently and is making a slight come back.   I always loved this look, great for those days you want to hide and layers are always a good thing.

This coat reminds me of puff pastry… It’s such a light cotton piece with great height and big sleeves.   It’s quite malleable and easy to work as I have done with the double wrap belt and kind of puffed it out a bit.   I kind of feel like a gladiator about to take off, however.   Which isn’t a bad thing!

Oh, and excuse me while I delve into a pit of grey and navy at the moment, might need to add some more colour to my life this week.  That’s the plan!

Love you all xx
