At Attention

Music Playlist at

As a future military wife, I was uber stoked to participate in this month's Blogger's Do It Better challenge: military chic.

Patrick is in the Air Force Reserves.  He was active duty for nine years and he has been in the Reserves (so far) for four years. 

We found out that he is going to Qatar next October.  It makes me very nervous, but I understand why he has to go. 

Patrick being in the military has really changed a lot of my perspective on such.  I was always weary of the military to be honest, but that was only because I am a tree-hugging hippy who doesn't like war and fighting. 

All my thoughts and political views on the war aside, however, I am so proud of Patrick.  He has really shown me a lot of what being in the military is all about and he is very respected at his position.

I think my dad was in the military, too and I know that my Grandpa was.  Bob, another attorney in our office, was in the military as well and he always tells me stories about it.  It's so interesting!

I actually have a lot of military inspired clothes and sport them quite often.  This vest is def in my top five, though.  I stalked it online for several weeks before making the plunge and I am so glad that I did.  I can honestly say that it is one of the most remixed pieces in my closet.

To complete the military inspired ensemble, I went with my wool skirt in a cadet blue and flat, studded knee high boots.  For those of you who have been loyal readers of mine, you might have noticed that I have embraced a slight tights/socks obsession, especially with boots.

So here's to the military trend and to those who actually serve in the military!
