Look of the Week: Army Green

The bestie/photographer and I made a stop for breakfast at Medina Cafe on Beatty St. in Vancouver before our shoot. I gleefully indulged in liege waffles with lavender milk chocolate topping and a delicious lavender mocha. I thought my obsession over everything lavender would be fleeting, but I have been craving this breakfast for a very very long time! If you haven't been to Medina Cafe, you need to try it out; the food is amazing and the decor is beautiful with it's exposed brick walls. We took advantage of the brick walls outside Medina for the backdrop of our Look of the Week shoot.

A hot trend this season is army green, but that doesn't have to include the usual camo print. I really like the faux leather paneling A great way to look put-together without a lot of effort is a loose-fitting sweater dress and leggings. Adding items like heels or a fur vest glam up the outfit, but you could also tone it down with some studded flats and ditching the vest for a blazer.

You'll likely recognize my red-soled heels from the DIY project I shared with you a few weeks ago. Here, they add a bit of sophisticated sassiness to the outfit. When I paired the heels with the sweater dress I realized I really liked the colour combination of bright red and army green. I added some red lipstick to the look to capitalize on this newly discovered colour combo.
