Trophy Hunting

 GET THE LOOK HERE:
Jacket: Target (option) (option) | Top: Kohl's (exact) (option) | Jeans: Express (option) (option) | Shoes: H&M (option) | Clutch: Target (option) (option) | Necklace: Forever 21 (DIY tutorial here)

Oh, camouflage, I fallen in love with thee. I first found you on a pair of pants and now a jacket. What will be next? A skirt? Shorts? Possibly a top? Who knows where our relationship will take us.

In all seriousness, I have become quite fond of the camouflage pattern, but always associated it with hunting. And a hunter I am not, at least when it comes to animals.

Now when it comes to shopping, I am definitely a trophy hunting machine. I was on the lookout for a camouflage jacket for months. Every time I saw one I liked online or on a blog, it was either too expensive or sold out.  

Low and behold, Target came through yet again. Surprised? Me neither.

Not only was this jacket hanging on the rack. It was hanging on the clearance rack for less than $25. I call that hitting it right between the eyes. 

Can you believe I actually stood there for a few minutes and contemplated putting it into my red basket? The only reason I doubted it was because I live in Texas and most of us know that in Texas the weather is about to get smokin' hot. I wasn't sure if I REALLY needed to spend money on a jacket when the temps are on the rise.

As you can see my hunting and gathering skills got the best of me. I brought this little trophy home. I have been wearing it as much as possible since it's been on the chilly side the past few days. It's been given plenty of well deserved love and attention.

So, what are your thoughts on wearing camouflage outside the deer stand?

Have you been on the hunt for anything lately?

I love the jacket and how GIRLY you made it!! I'm from Kentucky and own no camo, but that jacket is one that I would consider purchasing! I love the pops of pink and the stripes that you threw with it!! So cute!

Love how you styled this camo jacket! The pops of pink are so fun. Nice job on the DIY necklace!

Whitney said...

My hubby is in the army, so there is so much camo around our house lol. I just love love how you paired the camo with pink. Pink is my FAVE color!

Rachel said...

Girl, you are awesome! I love this combination and I would've NEVER thought to put that together. You are so talented :)

A J said...

You will get LOTS of use out of the jacket. Maybe not in a few months, but later this year you will bring it back out of the depths of your closet and remember the bargin you got on it and be so in love again!

I adore that you put this with pink accessories! I feel like camo should always be girly-ed up.

I am seeking the perfect comfortable, cute work shoes. It hasn't happened yet lol. I love your jacket! I REALLY love it with the pops of pink. I have a camo jacket so I am probably going to recreate this since we're still got snow in KY.

How cute are you!?! Love your blog and check in every day - you always look adorable. This outfit is so cute - and I love your hair curly. You are rocking the camo!! I live in PA, so I'd blend right in around here with everyone in their camo. They even wear it to weddings. No, unfortunately I am not kidding.

Beth // Design Your Dwelling said...

I love it - you have officially made me think differently of camo. I want to be able to rock this look like you have! :)

CAMO AND PINK?? I'M DYING!!!!! I have always, ALWAYS been a camo fan. I have a scarf, shorts, and tank...and have had them for years! You look BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Lauren said...

Target is my absolute downfall! I came across that same jacket not too long ago, but passed it up because I wasn't sure how much wear I'd get out of it. I love it with hot pink. You're making me regret that I didn't purchase it!

This is a great outfit. Love the pop of color with the pink clutch and necklace. I think as long as don't wear camo head to toe you can totally wear it outside of hunting. Don't forget my link up this thursday March 28.

I can't believe you doubted this jacket for a minute because this outfit is one of my FAVORITE ones I've seen in the blog world. Something about the camo and pink just really speaks to me. You are so silly, even in Texas, if they wear it as well as you, this jacket is a must have for everyone.

I still don't like camo BUT I did see a really cute tutu inspired dress with it and I kind of loved it. It's definitely making it's comeback. My boyfriend will be pleased.

I love the camo and pink together!! So cute. I grew up in south eastern Ohio so people wore camo all the time....DAILY! So I still don't know if I can rock it for fashion reasons.

Laura B @ Walking in Memphis in High Heels said...

I love how you can look gorgeous in hot pink, stripes and camo!!! You rock it. And your hair looks gorgeous!!

Penniless Socialite said...

I am actually on the hunt for a pair of camo pants. I need to get over to Target to see if I can snatch up the ones you got. I still remember in college there was a pair of pink camo jeans at Old Navy that I was in love with. My roommates would NOT let me buy those. I still regret listening to them.

I haven't owned anything camo in years, but I really, really love this outfit! The pop of pink and the curled hair take away the harshness of the hunter attitude that camo can so easily bring!

OMGOSH...I've fallen in love with the jacket on you! Love how you paired it with stripes and pink! I agree, Camo seems like "hunting only" gear, but seeing it all girlied up, makes you think differently! Will be hunting (no pun intended) for this jacket this week!
