We Gotta Fight, Fight, Fight For This Love: Lavish Alice Military Outfit

Saturday, October 06, 2012


So first things first, I am Lavish Alice's Blogger of the month. How cool is that? I'll be doing a post for them each week in October and featuring a Lavish Alice outfit. I was so chuffed to be asked as well I don't really see myself as a cool fashion blogger. You know when you go on Bloglovin and you see all these trendy types  looking all natural in the street and then there's me who's like got a proper cheesy grin and usually has to crop out household items such as ironing boards and hoovers which are in the background. It's safe to say that none of the uber cool fashion bloggers will be quaking in their boots. Anyway this week I'm all about military. Military is a huge trend this season as I'm sure you are all aware off! Everywhere you look there's khaki, military inspired items and being quite a girly girl, I was like 'surely this trend won't suit me.' However this military blouse from Lavish Alice has proved me wrong and hopefully if you're feeling a bit scared of military like I was, I can show you there is a way to wear it!

Blouse: Lavish Alice*
Jeans: Primark
Shoes: Primark 

Blouse: Lavish Alice*
Shorts: River Island 

This blouse is nice and fitted meaning it still feels feminine, I also like the gold buttons because well I'm a bit of a magpie. I also love that this blouse can be worn with anything, denim shorts, black jeans, even with skirts and tights. I loved wearing it with shorts when it was warmer and now it's a bit chiller, I'm loving the look with black jeans. Black jeans are a new staple in my wardrobe! Many celebrities also have very similar blouses including one of my style icons Caroline Flack. Well you all know how much I love her, so if it's good enough for Flack it's good enough for me! When I popped it on, my boyfriend said 'you look like one of Cheryl's Soldier's.' Being a massive Cheryl fan, this pleased me. He probably meant it as one of his funny remarks he makes about my clothes, remember the 'you look like a boy?' But I'm taking it as a compliment.

I'm now ready to face more edgy autumn trends, I'm coveting a army jacket ( I know) and a beanie hat that everyone seems to be wearing these days. I don't even like hats! What's up with that? If you want to read my blog post for Lavish Alice you can do here, also keep an eye out for my other posts for LA. I'd better go now as I'm packing for my weekend away back home. When you read this, I should be back home and getting myself ready for my cousin's wedding reception. Hope you all have a lovely weekend, check my instagram (dizzybrunette3) for preview of my outfits and slap (the stuff I wear on my face.)
