A FLASH SALE THAT ENDS at 10:00 AM EST Thursday!
I have a very important public service announcement today.
Actually, I don’t have the message.
Pinterest is the one with the message.
I’m just helping her get the word out.
Pinterest isn’t just telling you to get a military jacket, she’s practically BEGGING you to.
Look at all of the lovely military jacket inspiration she has to offer.
|source HERE for picture #1, source HERE for picture #4, original sources unable to be found for others|
And listen, you can wear it with EVERYTHING, so you pretty much have ZERO excuses.
With florals, With lace, With dresses.
A military jacket seriously looks good with anything.
|left picture HERE, other sources unable to be found|
But even though it really does look good with just about anything, what I really love to pair a military jacket with is stripes.
I found a little bit of inspiration for an outfit recreation, and I came pretty close!
Striped Sweater| HERE
I LOVE this sweater and it is 50% off right now! It is SO soft, and it fits so cute!
AND IT’S STRIPES.
Military Jacket| Nordstrom, last year
MUST HAVE jeans| HERE
If you haven’t bought these jeans yet, well then shame on you! 😉
TOMS wedges| HERE
I am LOVING these wedges sooooooo much. They are crazy comfy and super cute!
It really is the perfect fall outfit.
Okay, so before I get to all of my military jacket options for you ladies….I first have the
BEST NEWS EVER!
(If you follow me on facebook, then you already heard the news.)
Thank you to Alison (a sweet reader) for e-mailing me the fact that she had found it at Nordstrom.
Something is at Nordstrom and I didn’t know about it?
Well, I never.
It’s online only, and it’s available now!
Click HERE for the jacket.
(And you better click fast! The manufacturer is out of them, which is why Milk and Honey could not reorder them. So, when they’re gone, they’re gone!)
I called Nordstrom to see if I could find out how many they have in stock.
(Sometimes the person you get on the phone will tell you, sometimes they won’t.)
I got lucky this time and I actually listened to the sweet girl count up the inventory! They have:
18 SMALLS, 22 MEDIUMS, 50 LARGES
If you are a small or a medium and want this jacket, you better get on it!
Okay. I lied.
I’ve worn it 4 times.
But in my defense, I saw different people each time.
(And my Cora chandeleir earrings that I am also loving right now HERE.)
The 2nd time I wore it I threw it on with my MUST HAVE shirt HERE, my MUST HAVE jeans HERE (non-distressed version), my Kimberly Necklace HERE, and my TOMS wedges HERE.
The third time I wore with with the same grey tee HERE, my mustard skinny jeans (sold out, but a great option for you in a minute) and my cognac wedge boots HERE.
I mean, it’s SUPER CUTE from the front and I would love it even if it was just plain on the back.
(I think the dark khaki would also look great with this jacket if you are scared to go as bold as the mustard.)
Remember when I tried them on for my last Shopping with Sheaffer and Shay?
Click HERE if you missed the shopping trip, it’s a good one. 🙂
Well, I loved the cords then…but I LOVE them even more now (because they are now 33% off!)
These cords are AMAZING.
And just like the graphic says, they are
definitely skinny enough to tuck into tall boots (like I did in the above
picture) but they would also be great worn straight or cuffed with flats, heels,
They come in like 76 colors (some people say I tend to exagerate),
and you need them in your life!
Click HERE for the Kut from the
Kloth cords! (They have them in the skinny solid color versions below, in a couple of patterned options, and in bootcut!)
And they are ALL ON SALE!
I have 2 pairs of cords that I wear all winter long, if you don’t have any, pick a pair up for sure!
Okay…..sorry for the cord derailment, back to military jackets.
I wore my first 2 so often, that I didn’t even feel badly about ordering a 3rd one because I knew I would wear it constantly too!
Just for grins, here is one of the first looks I put together on the blog last year. And it’s still one of my favs! It’s with my 1st military jacket.
And here I am in my 2nd military jacket.
now that you know that I now have 3 military jackets (and I wear all of them ALL THE TIME), do you believe me
when I say youneed AT LEAST 1?
Here’s another collage just in case you’re still on the fence.
If this one doesn’t convince you, then I don’t know what will!
Now, I have lots of great military jacket options for you to consider!
This is a great option at only $59, and it comes in a faded black also.
If you are looking for a classic and simple look, this could be your jacket. I love that you can still gather the waist in if you wish.
d) Lily Aldridge HERE
also comes in Navy
Click HERE for another picture of the Rubbish jacket on the left.
It’s buttoned up, cinched in at the waist, and styled differently and I like it even better!
Ooh! Look at THIS one I found! Click HERE.
It’s a dark green (not quite as dark as it appears in the pictures though), and I really like it! Plus, check out the cute collar! And the fit of it was great! And check out the little cute tie in the back! Yes. I like this one a lot.
It’s in the juniors department, so for size reference I am wearing a medium (which I always do in juniors jackets).
Click HERE for this awesome jacket that has FABULOUS reviews.
I’m not typically a fan of the vest, but Shay in her super cute puffer vest is starting to sway me! I am loving this one. Click HERE.
And it’s only $48!
And GAP is 35% off your purchase today only with the code GAP24HR.
And check out THIS camo option!
Another Nordstrom option HERE. I kinda like that it has different sleeves! This one is edgy for sure.
I’m hoping that my post today has made you realize the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY of AT LEAST 1 military jacket in your closet.
It’s a classic piece that goes with EVERYTHING and kicks up the cool factor of anything you put it on with. Basically, if you win the $400 gift card, I think you should use it to buy 4 military jackets.
Because I promise you it would be MONEY WELL SPENT.
Speaking of the contest,

FOUR HUNDRED SMACKAROOS!
One more thing before you go!
I couldn’t let you leave without a Santa Alert!
I personally just think I should highlight THESE houseshoes again.
However, I do have another awesome idea to share.
OH WAIT PEOPLE.
I GOT AN E-MAIL ABOUT NORDSTROM SALE PRICES GOING UP TO 60% OFF NOW.
HOLD THE PHONE.
Click HERE for all women’s clothing.
Click HERE for shoes.
Click HERE for handbags, accessories, and watches.
I didn’t receive the e-mail until this morning (Wednesday morning), so I didn’t have time to sort through items myself and pick my favorites. But I did scan them quickly, and there are some CRAZY GOOD deals to be had.
I know I say this all the time, but just remember to use the “Narrow By” Search bars to your advantage. I ALWAYS sort by price, but you can also sort by “percent off”, which is also fun!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE buying gifts that are on sale that appear to be worth way more than you paid for them! 🙂
