Stand and Deliver; Military inspired jackets…

Never more than before do I love this time of year and my obsession with all things autumnal and wintery knows no bounds… endless exciting and shiny and new things all calling for my attention.

Which way does a girl turn?

Left, right, left, right it would appear. A fail safe military inspired jacket.

These are not the kind of more casual khaki/military jackets looked at a while ago; these are all together much smarter options – that work as well during the day as the evening; without getting too Adam Ant Prince Charming-esque… unless that is your preferred option.

Starting with probably the quietest Military jacket I found from Next £58, in navy.
