Like most of the world right now, I cannot get “Alejandro” out of my head. You know that I love you boy. Hot like Mexico. Rejoice! Ahhh, kill me! I guess it’s fitting, as I seem to have the whole military theme on the brain lately. This army shirt was my grandfather’s and, though it was about 8 sizes to big for me, I wore the Hell out of it in junior high. When I saw some of the interesting things designers have been doing with the military jacket, my heart skipped at beat at the thought of reviving it. I also quite like the idea of the reworked button–down, so that’s basically what spawned this look.
I recently received an award from the lovely ladies at DC Dating Divas and felt I was far overdue for sharing 5 random things about myself. Here goes:
- One of my favorite things about living in DC is that, much like changing of seasons, at certain times of year, people seem to drift back into the area (and into my life) and I love reconnecting with the new crew!
- Harvest Delivered – definitely life-changing, if only for saving B and I from scurvy.
- Going to the Netherlands in a week, but can only stay for a few days. Boo!!
- Been on an old school X-Files bender for weeks and it’s starting to make me weird.
- My grandmother gave B and me a Lucienne Day tea towel for an anniversary gift and I just love it and want to acquire more.

Hell yeah, X-Files shout out. I watched that sh*t last year — totally rad. And you look like a goddess in this post! Those shoes! Oy!

You look awesome!! I love the army shirt tied around the waist.
I can sympathize also: I always seem to have Alejandro stuck in my head these days.
I'm so sorry to be the grammar police nerd but this stuff makes me twitch, so please excuse my obnoxiousness but it's "B and /me/," unless I is an initial–then I'm blowing it. 😉 I love this simple outfit. So jealous of your legs! Have fun in the Netherlands. 🙂 xx
aaahh yes!! crazy last song syndrome from lady gaga today.. i found the video a bit weird (posted it in my blog), but undeniably gaga!! 😀
looking great, e! i love that rich green color from the shirt!! 😀
I love Lady Gaga. I know a kid name Alejandro, so I feel like calling him every time I here. Silly me.
havent seen the video yet, but I love your outfit. Especially the shirt tied!! fantastic!
Gosh, I cannot get that song out of my head either. The video is just amazing!!!!! Love Lady Gaga. ANd I love your military shirt. It really looks tough and rugged, just the way it should be. Perfect contrast with your clean little dress.

I love what you did here–from the back it looks like it's a funky green skirt with buttons. So effortless–fantastic!

I love this look. Only you could make tying a shirt around your waist look this chic! You look fab!

I lived in DC for a year and a half and I so agree with your number one. It is crazy how many people from your past end up there!
Such a creative way to revive it. I love this.

Those shoes are great! and I love the army shirt… And Oh I had that song Alejandro in my head for two weeks once… so catchy!
I feel like this is one part country club, one part camp counselor. And I love them both.

Still obsessed with those shoes- and i Love the greens mixed together. So lovely.

You made that military shirt a lot more interesting by the way you styled it. Love the look… and love the shoes so much! xoxo
It's cool that the shirt has history. I love authentic vintage pieces where there's a story behind it – it makes the clothing so much more personal!
The shoes are fantastic too!
