How Service and Style Come Together for Jess

You won’t find a finer, more courageous group of people than our U.S. military members and their families. Like featured blogger, Jess, from The Chic Blonde. Not only does she share our love for veterans, but she’s also going on nine years of being a proud military wife. And we couldn’t be more proud (and excited) to pass along her support for all things military service and amazing sense of style no matter where she’s stationed in the world.

As a military wife going on nine years, I’m no stranger to change. My husband and I have been to three different duty stations and currently live overseas in the Middle East. Being stationed abroad means finding outfits that can easily transition from morning to night. Like outfits for my active lifestyle, casual looks for running daytime errands, and stunning chic looks for a night out. For my first “outfit of the day” I’m sporting an athleisure look that is great for a morning walk to the coffee shop to meet up with friends or some rooftop yoga to get your day started off right. I absolutely love this heathered tunic (the cinching on the wrists makes it so chic) and this pair of mesh cut-out leggings (especially at such a great price).

For my afternoon OOTD, I styled my outfit around these blush toned faux leather sneakers. These sneakers are perfect for running around and tackling errands (and they look great with jeans or leggings). To give this look a little bit of an edge, I paired it with this must-have moto jacket with quilted stitching (can’t get of the detailing on this one) and my mini me.

For my last outfit, I found the cutest sweater dress with an adorable plaid trim (perfect for day or night). To finish the look, I paired it with cute heels and pretty jewelry (how fun are these black tassel earrings). Best of all, this dress is the perfect go-to piece under that black moto jacket I had on earlier when you’re craving an extra layer.
