Military + Feminine = This?

As you know, I'm participating in a fashion challenge put on by Casual Chic Kiki and Megan Mae Daily.  Today's challenge is to combine the military trend with something feminine. 

This was a tough one for me. Maybe it's because I was all confused and thought today was "Go Neutral." Several sweet bloggers corrected me yesterday!  Ha, anyways at the last minute I had to throw something together.  This shirt is the only military inspired item I could come up with between me and my sister. 
Here's what I did with it:

Shirt: My sister's
Tank: Express
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: www.6pm.com
Ring: Premier Design Jewelry
Bracelets: Target
Scarf as a Belt: Ooh La La (a local boutique)

Check it out! I also did a little pattern mixing with the flowers and stripes!

This totally works! The Sgt. Pepper's-esque top and the skirt are military inspired and the floral scarf turned into a belt is girly! LOVE IT :) Can't wait to see tmrw's challenge!

Oh my gosh - I adore this outfit on you! I think it's the belt that does it for me. I'm not really sure, I just love everything about this. You look fantastic!

This is the type of outfit that I strive to put together. It has color, pattern, texture with the shoe, and it's just creative! I really think this is a winner!

I actually lovelovelove this look. It is exactly something that I would wear because it has the tough, edgy pieces mixed with some nice, feminine pieces. I would love to recreate this look! :)

I love it! Very old-school military, and the flowers and stripes look fabulous together. I don't think I would have a single darned military thing to wear, haha!
