Socialite mixed with Army Brat

As I was flipping though my CosmoGirl magazine (yes, i still get it, I'm not quite sure why my mom still renews the subscription haha?) I saw this great editorial of sort of an updated bohemian chic.

My favorite shot is this one of the party dress with an olive military anorak over it, paired with a mess of bangles. I think it's a very chic way to wear a fancy dress during the daytime and not look totally overdressed. This look is best with a longer jacket opposed to crop so it looks better with a dress. Also, you can't see in the picture but the dress/jacket are paired with this great pair of plum tights to add some more jewel tones in the mix.. so cute! This is something I could easily pull together from my closet and I plan on doing it immediately!

xoxo, lauren

Oh! The military anorak! I must go to my parents' attic and claim my dad's vintage specimen!
And don't feel bad about still getting Teen Vogue. I'm 28, and I subscribe, so you have many good, guilt-free years left. :)
