Modern military

The nights are staying lighter and the finally the heavy winter coats are being able to be changed for lighter ones now spring has sprung! Although the sudden recent drop in temp again was probably due to the fact I switched my wardrobe over from winter to summer….apologies for that! 

It was a recent purchase that got my (shopping overdrive) mind to focussing….some may class it as obsessing…..over a style that seems to be everywhere at the moment. The military style jacket. My inspiration for finding the right one at the right price is thanks to the Queen of the military jacket the fashion lift . Fran, without question, has nailed this look. Here’s what I mean……….




If you don’t follow already Fran you really must…if there’s one lady who will make you have total confidence in your own style it’s most definitely this lady ❤️ 

After doing my usual web surfing one night I came across this beauty from Very and clicked order. I’d tried many other versions of the military jacket but always sent them back…till this one was delivered by my lovely (and now very good friend) yodel man and it was a winner! Going by the unusually name of the frogging jacket??!!

Perfect fit, collar and material for what I wanted, trying very hard to resist getting it in the beige too! I find this style of jacket so versatile for adding that extra edge to an outfit. Wear it over a v-neck linen t-shirt and jeans or over a summer maxi dress…it really would compliment and jazz up any outfit. 

Heres a few more that have caught my eye…

They also do it in a Navy which is down to £25 but sizes and stock are low although they do re-stock so keep your eyes peeled!

Now I LOVE this Ralph Lauren jacket…the colour, material and overall look of it really has me drooling (not an attractive sight I can tell you!) more pricier than I’d like but I’m sure a classic that you would keep forever.

Not wanting to spend that much? Then how about this. In the clearance section of Very this longer line blazer is giving the subtle nod to this trend. Still in a range of sizes for only £29.26!

Mango seem to always get this look totally right! I adore this black jacket with the red trim detail.
