military in navy


I love pairing navy and black.

Even if it ‘technically’ doesn’t match.  In my book it does.

This military style coat from ShopKempt is one of my new favorites.  Tailored with brass button details.  It’s the perfect piece to layer on top of a feminine look to add some edge without looking too hard.

Coats might be the only part of winter I don’t hate.


  1. Hmmm…I think my overall impression of that outfit is that you are short. Isn’t that fence in the background about two feet tall?

  2. I am obsessed with mixing black and blue too! Probably to make up for all those times I was told it was not allowed!

    P.S. LOVING your shoes too!:)

  3. I pair black and navy together: it looks great…and love your coat! I agree: it’s one of the best parts of Winter…that and scarves and red Christmas Starbucks cups 🙂

  4. I’m in love with that coat! 🙂 And I totally think it matches with the black!!! The whole outfit is adorable.

  5. That coat is GORGEOUS!!! Also, I wore black and navy just the other day! 🙂 In my opinion, they do pair so well!

  6. I love black and navy together. I used to feel the same way as you, but my coworker introduced me to the color combo and I’ve been in love with it ever since.

  7. Hey Nicole,

    Hope all is well! Good to see you’re doing more fashion posts and you are getting better and better with each post (photography, background setting, posing, etc).

    When will those booties from NYC make an appearance? :o)


  8. I have a coat similar to that minus the buttons and you have inspired me to dress mine up more than I usually do! Thanks for the inspiration-here from WIWW.

  9. I really love this outfit, and like how you mixed the blue and black. I’m really impressed that those booties are from Target!
