Olive You

- Fashion, Outfits


Anytime I’ve worn this sweater in the past, it has always been with jeans and boots. So I wanted to mix it up a bit and make it more girly, which is why I paired it with this blush-colored maxi. I think it gave it a more feminine touch, and with a belt and pair of oxfords, I was set for a day at work  (I was wearing the same belt and oxfords in an outfit post here). Even though this skirt is more of a blush color than pink, I LOVE the idea of olive/military green with pink ever since seeing someone wear the combination when I was traveling in London (see the inspiration in a street style post here) and always wanted to give it a try.

My wonderful photographer is taking engagement photos for my sister this weekend and we are excited to see her along with my parents and future brother-in-law! Should be a great weekend! Do you have any plans this weekend?! Hope it is wonderful regardless of what you’re up to!

    I love the color Olive, but I don’t have that many pieces in that shade sadly. Sounds like a fun weekend you’ll be having! I’m going to NYC to celebrate a friend’s birthday so that will be fun for me!

    I like the olive and blush! I saw Oprah wear Chocolate brown and baby pink once and really loved it, so I tried it out.
    I also love that you had seen the inspiration in London! I love London, I named my daughter London.
    Have fun over the weekend!
