Outfit of the Day / Blending in Print

Growing up I lived next to an army base so I guess you could say I've definitely been around camouflage most my life however that doesn't mean I've been a lover of wearing it.  In fact I have no memory of ever owning something with the print, that is until now.  I was shopping around with my sister and decided to pop into a vintage store that I had been eyeing for over a year but for some reason have never stepped foot in.  Let me just say that if you are reading this and you live in Toronto please do go to 69 Vintage on Queen Street West.  I loved it!  It's certainly not my everyday shopping place but I enjoyed my experience and look forward to visiting every now and then.  I always thought of vintage stores being kind of smelly and just cluttered with mostly junk.  That was not the case for this store.  It smelled lovely and it was so well organized and categorized - exactly how I love my shopping experience to be!  Anyway, it was here that I found this camo vest that I'm totally obsessed with.  I've been thinking of adding the print to my wardrobe but knew it had to be the perfect piece for me to be sold.  So where to begin with it's fabulousness!  This print automatically implies a relaxed look with a baggy wear which is exactly what this was but the deal breaker was the elastic inside that created this perfectly cinched waist line that makes the vest look peplum!  LOVE!
