Styling An Embroidered Military Style Jacket – Badly!

Getting it wrong and a fashion blogger and styling an embroidered military style jacket - badly! The Barefaced Chic, a lifestyle blog for women over 50.

I have never really considered myself a fashion blogger. Although I share my outfits with you, talk about how my style has evolved or maybe give you some styling tips that I’ve picked up along the way, I always categorise The Barefaced Chic as a lifestyle blog.

Styling An Embroidered Military Style Jacket – Badly!

I don’t have my finger on the pulse of fashion (although I’m learning more every day), and I do make mistakes – oh so many outfit mistakes. Take this embroidered military style jacket for example. Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE this jacket, but what on earth was I thinking when I styled it with THAT dress?!

When I looked through the images from this outfit shoot, my first reaction was to bin them and forget I ever left the bowels of the boat dressed like an overstuffed sausage. Yet if I did that I’d not only be fooling myself, I’d be presenting you with a unrealistic impression of me and this blog.

The fact is, there are going be times when I lose my way on this still pretty new fashion road. I’ll make the wrong choices, wear things that don’t suit me and look through hundreds of pictures that make me cringe. And you know what? I’m OK with that, and I’m more than OK sharing my faux pas with you.

My aim is to keep this blog as real as I possibly can. Yes, of course I share the best images with you. Yes, I share the good times with you. Yes, I share my eclectically glorious life with you. But I also share the bad times, the sad times and I sometimes let you look into my very soul.

This lifestyle blogger is still learning, still experimenting and still loving fashion – even if she sometimes looks like a sausage 😜

Until next time x

    While I don’t agree that you looked like a sausage in this, it’s not my favourite look for you either, and I thank you for keeping it so real….makes me feel a little more normal lol

      Ah thanks Heide! I think this outfit looks as if I’ve tried way too hard – it’s not a great look 🙁

    I love your honesty, it’s a refreshing antidote to all the “look at my lovely life” posturing that goes on. I like the jacket and your legs look amazing, so not all bad! Gail x

    Well done for sharing, yes we want the best look and reject the ones we don’t like, but I agree that’s not the real thing. For me when I look at my previous photos I see someone too big, and need to address that, but hey that’s how I look at the moment so I have to go with it! Hope you’re well. I was visiting Westwood again today! A little light shopping. lol. x Jacqui
