a perfect marriage.

i found this jacket in the motherload, tags still on.
i've always liked this "military" style, but couldn't get myself to wear it in a conventional way, with jeans and boots, for fear of looking too, well...military.
without inspiration, the jacket sat in my closet and
eventually made its way to the motherload.
i was determined to wear it this time around, and finally something sparked when i saw aria in the latest
episode of pretty little liars.
she was wearing a similar jacket with a long
patchwork maxi skirt. hmmm...me like maxis, i thought.
and this weekend, while standing in line to pay for my hangers, i spied this dress.
it was a maxi, it was patchwork, and it was floral.
let's just say this is the spring version of aria's fall outfit.
