Army, meet the Navy. Navy, say how do you do?

Hi darlings! As I was getting dressed this morning I couldn't quite decide if I was feeling Army strong, or nautically Navy. So I decided to host a little military mingling and show my love for both services! It's a tough life, but hey, a girl's gotta do her patriotic duty every now and then. And since my two best guy friends happen to be in the Navy/Army I could never, ever choose between the two. Therefore, I hereby dedicate my day 3 of the challenge to all the amazing men and women who protect our wonderful country. Hats off to ya and my outfit salutes you!

Jacket: LOFT, Sweater: Forever 21, Dress (masquerading as a skirt): TJ Maxx, Tights: Forever 21, Boots: Madden Girl via DSW, Watch: Michael Kors, Rings/bracelet: gifted, Earrings: mom's
Today you get to see my new door. Aren't you just loving these apartment shots? :) I am planning on showing you actual footage of the apartment, but I want to wait until is decorated and looks presentable! Right now it is basically just white walls and hardwood floors. But, I do love my floors!
I stalked this jacket multiple times a day until it went on sale this fall. I eagerly awaited its arrival. I swooned over it when it finally showed its self at my door. But sadly, it has only made one appearance on this blog, or in life outside the blog! I knew that had to be remedied by including its lonely self in my 30 for 30 items. As soon as I included it, I immediately knew it needed to be paired with my newest sweater, since I loved the idea of pairing the army green with the red stripes. I can't wait to create even more outfits for this undervalued jacket!
There wasn't anything interesting going on with my bottom half today so I didn't feel the need to photograph it. Hopefully it won't have its feelings hurt, but it was necessary to keep it muted with all that I had going on up top. Ok I don't think I've ever discussed my body in halves like this ever and it is freaking me out so I am going to stop. I have already decided that I consider the 30 for 30 a success (and it is only day 3!) purely because it has introduced me to so many new and amazing blogs. I adore coming across great new reads and the fabulous Miss Kendi has made it all the more easy by organizing all her 30 for 30ers into a lovely little (nothing little about it!) list. I am tasking myself with the rather lofty goal of checking out each and every blog on the list by the end of the challenge, and for those of you have already seen the list you know that is a major undertaking! Even if you aren't participating in the challenge you should give it a looksie because I assure you will find many fantastic blogs to add to your daily reads!
