TARA'S WAY: THE MILITARY STYLE PARKER VEST

"Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes."

- Carl Friedrich Gauss


So Ellen wasn't exaggerating when she said we love this military vest! Even though it was chosen on the loose
 idea of being Ellen's item (mine being the heart shirt from this post) I kind of fell completely in love with it when I 
opened the package they both came in. Since then, I've been taking advantage of the fact Ellen has a school 
uniform so can't wear it as often as I have been doing x). Since it's spring here and the weather's starting to warm
 up a bit, this vest has been the perfect weight when combined with long-sleeve tops and will be great in summer 
with short sleeves too! Plus 4 pockets? Perfect for if you want to leave your bag behind, a positive feature often 
only found in men's clothes.

sunglasses - onceit (dont know brand :/)
hunger games necklace - amazon
skirt, top, boots - Glassons
beanie - DIY here
vest c/o Choies

Our family went to Wicked together as a surprise for mum's birthday, and it was so amazing! The cast, costumes,
set and story/songs knocked it out of the park! I'd heard so many great things about it before, and now I completely
 understand why! If you ever get the chance to see it you totally should!!
