The Romantic Military

My husband was in the service... for 20 years retiring as an officer. He was used to the rigid ways of the military. But, he has a romantic side, the one that captured my heart.

This jacket blended the military look with the romantic Juliet sleeves. I've had it for a while but every time I wear it, I get compliments for it.

military jacket: Elevenses from Anthropologie (old but similar here)
sweater dress: BCBG MaxAzria (old)
cross body bag: Schuler and Sons Philadelphia from Anthropologie (similar here
boots: Via Spiga (similar here)

Our family had a wonderful busy weekend. We went shopping for gifts to give the 2 kids we adopted for Christmas from our Angel tree at church. We also had the YFC (Youth for Christ) carolers at our house on Saturday night. Their angelic voices and joyful carols kicked-off our Christmas celebration.

Our kids described Sunday as "super fun". We had  our family photo shoot with Kate Barnette of Kate Nicole Photography. I am so happy she had a cancellation this weekend and was able to accommodate us, saving us from a traditional studio family picture. I can't wait to see the results of our funky on-location photo session!

So how was your weekend?

Happy Monday ladies!
