Hi all

I previously posted that I bought a whbm military style jacket (first find) partly because it is a similar style to a Zara military jacket that I already own (and love). Here are some recent outfits featuring the Zara jacket. I wear it a lot at this time of year. It's a wool/viscose blend and a good weight for spring/autumn.

As you can see, I am also really liking my new jeans. Thinking of duplicating them because good jeans are hard to find.

Pics 1-3: weekend lunch. This is a simple combination that I have been enjoying a lot this spring. The top is from Witchery. I would call it a dressy tee. It is mixed media but unusual because it's spliced diagonally down the front rather than vertically down the sides. One half is jersey (t-shirt) material and the other is cupro in a soft faux leather. It also has an asymmetrical hem. I wore cognac boots, black and white scarf and blue bag (instead of my more usual black) to lighten things up a bit for daytime. The scarf has some orange in it, which repeats the cognac of the boots.

Pics 4-5: casual dinner. Same tee, jeans and jacket but different boots and accessories. The necklace is vintage Chanel given to me by my husband a few years ago. I save it for special occasions because I was once given a vintage Givenchy necklace that fell apart quickly with wear It was a special occasion because I was seeing family members visiting from interstate.

Pic 6: another casual dinner. Same jacket and jeans. Different shoes, top and accessories.

Plus bonus pics 7-9: the other whbm jacket! The floral pattern does not photograph well but the colours include olive green, light blue (good for wearing with denim) and a brownish red (good for wearing with most of my wardrobe). I am sure that not everyone will like it. That's ok. Even my husband said it would be better in leather. To which I respond, wouldn't everything?
