military not militant

The new hot trend for fall is the military look.  I have always loved the look of military, but was not sure how to really make it work for me.  Not really into doing one trend head to toe.  When I saw these cargo skinny pants at Torrid I knew they belonged in my closet.  They have a military inspired look with the army green color but are not totally rough looking. This outfit didn't completely come out they way I planned, but it was OK.  I totally wanted to wear the cargo skinny pants this weekend so I took Tim Gunn's motto and made it work. 

I really wanted to wear some boots with these pants, but because of my chubby foot (swollen sprained ankle) I couldn't.  So sandals it was and even those barely fit.  The top I really wanted to wear was not clean....oh well!  I really love these pants either way, lots of styling possibilities.  Only complaint I have is they are really long and have to fold them over a lot.  On the Torrid website they are shown folded over any ways so I guess that how they are suppose to be. The pants are also not as skinny at the ankles as I would like. But I they fit well on my bum and thighs.  If I really want to I may have them taken in.  So what do you think, do you like the cargo skinny jeans?  Are you going to try the military look this fall?  Thanks for reading and leave me your comments, I love reading what you all have to say. Enjoy!!
