Downtown Duck Hunt















WEARING








Quack Quack!  I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!  I'm totally hunter chic today right?  This outfit brings me back to my Louisiana roots!  A lot of my family and friends are big hunters back home and so I am very use to seeing camo, but ever since the Duck Dynasty revolution swept the world it seems like it's every where I look!  I mean, I can't even make a quick trip to the grocery without seeing those bearded fellows plastered somewhere.  It's on every thing  from calendars, school supplies, books, fanny packs, candles, pencil pouches and more!  Even designers like Valentino, Stella McCartney and Haute Hippie have embraced the camo mania and turned what is usually a casual look for going duck hunting, into a high end fashion trend that has be seen on runways world wide!  I seriously thought I would never see the day.  I think it's also ironic that camoflauge is worn to blend in with the environment, but since the fashion world got their hands on it, it actually makes a "stand out" statement.  Wouldn't you agree?  I mean.. I'm not sure that I blend in with the city all too well, especially rocking my fiery red Tom Ford lips!   

Even though your making a loud statement when wearing camo, I find it actually very easy to wear.  You can pair it with neutrals, add a pop of color to it, or if you don't want to wear it as a main piece, work it into your outfit by wearing camo printed shoes or maybe carry a bag.  The tank I'm wearing in this post is by Haute Hippie and I really like it because the fabric feels good and the camo is more bluey than hunter green (hunter green is usually the norm for camo).  My Valentino rock stud pumps are my best friends and I have a really unhealthy obsession with them.  You can wear them with so much!  They are one of my favorite things in my closet and they are surprisingly super comfortable.  What is your favorite thing about this outfit?  SukiLynn photography and I had a great time shooting!  Athough I didn't see any ducks downtown in Big D, I still had a blast!  I guess I'll have to go back home to get my duck gumbo fix...See you next time!
