Leopard and Army

As usual, I was perusing Pinterest one day and came across a photo of Jenna Lyons rocking some serious army green and leopard with black accents. I loved the look, so thought I’d try to make it work using some pieces I already had. I’m no Jenna, but I like the combination.

Also, please ignore my early morning groggy face.

Army green chinos: J.Crew
Black cardigan: J.Crew
Leopard tank: Romeo & Juliet Couture
Black boots: L.L. Bean

I paired it with a blazer I found at Goodwill. This was one of those “see it at the end of the rack, hightail it over as quickly as you can, and grab it before anyone else does” moments. Ralph Lauren wool blazer with faux fur collar – $8 – hooray! I had to remove the shoulder pads and move the button over to make it fit more snugly, but the little self-made alterations were worth it, I love this bad boy.

Oh yeah, TODAY IS VOTING DAY! Get out there, patriots!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
