Must Have Monday
This week’s must have is a green army jacket. Last year, the green army jacket filled store racks, and has showed no signs of it slowing down. The green army jacket is a staple because it is a neutral piece, which, means it will match with your multi-colored wardrobe.This jacket is just as versatile as a jean jacket and can be worn in so many ways.
If you are wondering, what should I pair my green jacket with, do not over think it, just think of it as a jean jacket, and whatever you wear with a jean jacket, a green army jacket will be a perfect substitute. Like I said before, the green army jacket is very versatile and can be worn casual or more on the fancy side. For a simple casual look with the army jacket, try a loose white blouse, distressed skinny jeans and a pair of high top converse. Another casual look would be leather pants, a white button up shirt, a grey pullover sweater, a pair of black two inch heels, and do not forget the green army jacket. If you want to dress up the jacket, try a black lace dress with black pumps and the green jacket over it. I usually wear my jacket with a black velvet dress, pantyhose and a pair of black Doc Martens. I also wear my green army jacket with black skinny jeans, black sweatshirt, and faux leather Converse, which is my common casual look.
Here are some I found online so you can get yourself one too.

Birkenstock Trend
Summer is almost here, which means it is time to add a pair of comfortable sandals to your ever growing shoe collection. And boy do I have a pair for you, one word, Birkenstock. There is nothing new about Birkenstocks; they were extremely popular in the 90’s, and like everything in fashion, they have found themselves trending once more. The dubbed “ugly shoes” were embraced by flannel wearing and tree-hugging people, but now they are incorporated into high fashion. While it is unsure how Birkenstocks found their way back into the limelight, one thing is for certain, everyone wants to get a pair of “ugly sandals”.
Birkenstock sandals can be paired with anything from overalls to skirts. And I mean everything, because Birkenstock like sandals have even made their way to the runway, where they have been paired with outfits by top designers like: Miu Miu, Marni, and Houghton. So you know if top designers are making shoes like Birkenstock, you have to get a pair for your feet.
Birkenstocks are popular with street style and high fashion wearers. A basic street fashion outfit that is commonly paired with Birkenstocks would be distressed boyfriend jeans, and a loose white blouse. If you want to pay homage to the 90’s, try a pair of denim overalls, a crop top, and of course your comfortable sandals. Another street style outfit would be a pair of white ankle trousers, a loose tank top, a black boyfriend blazer, and white Birkenstocks. A black leather skirt, a chambray top, with a pair of Birkenstocks is another simple, but fashionable outfit. If you are into high fashion, the Edun Spring 2014 collection is brilliant, and a lot of the pieces can be worn with Birkenstocks. I really like the contrast that Birkenstocks bring to high fashion; they balance a high fashion outfit out.
The chunky sandal trend does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon, and while the trend might not be for everyone it does seem to appeal to a lot of people who enjoy fashion.
