Today I went for a military-inspired look.
I’ve always loved army-inspired fashion and I wish I had more similar pieces to this jacket.
I love army green as a color, as it is.
But add combat boots and I’m already sold.
I actually am not sure why I love it so much, besides the colors.
I am a fan of a bit more masculine fashion, so that might be a part of it.
But maybe it’s the sense of badassery that really appeals to me.
That is a word.
I associate military with discipline, respect and hard work.
I’ve considered participating in military service all of my life, always ending up with not doing it.
I have too much everything else I want to do.
Though, here in Finland where it’s mandatory for the male population, it usually lasts about a year, so it wouldn’t be that long.
Why I would want to do that?
Mostly to see what I’m really made of.
Though, it’s not quite as rough and demanding as it used to be, but it’s still meant to separate boys from men even to this day.
I actually think I would do good, if I would really put my head in it.
I am physically strong, even if I don’t work out.
I’ve always been.
And I’m disciplined.
I might have a bit of an authority-issue, so the only way I could do it, is to take the management/leadership training route.
It really would be cool.
But right now getting my career up and running is my priority, and I’ve already wasted too many years of my life.
I really do need to expand my closet still.
I’m a very moody person, and thus a moody dresser.
I dress by how I feel.
Sometimes, if I pick an outfit the previous night, I might not want to wear it anymore in the morning.
Sometimes, it’s frustrating, but I’ve learnt to accept that part of myself.
After all, fashion is a way of expressing one’s self.
Whether it’s your mood, or your entire persona, you can wear it.
And only in recent years, I’ve really started to find pieces that reflect me in every mood, in the very core of my personality.
Not that that took long or anything…
Also, below is a picture of my new coat!
I ordered it, because I didn’t have a “lighter” coat for warmer winter/autumn/spring and maybe even summer if required.
This is Finland.
And Finland is cold.
Coat: EMP|Military Jacket: H&M|Jeans: Sunny’s Fashion|Boots: Brandit (EMP)
For my makeup, I tried to reflect the military colors.
Though, I’m not completely satisfied with this look.
It still needs some work.
Can’t wait to have my new brushes and get to it 😉
Do you dress by your mood/personality/trends?
