Gingham and Olive

gingham + olive

The only way the Madewell sahara jacket looks good on me is if I belt it, so here I am again trying to reign in the wide body. I actually really like it this way. However, there's no way to squish together a lot of material without appearing slightly unkept, so I am trying to cultivate the whole I'm-too-cool-to-care-I'm-rumbled look here. (Yes, I am an oxymoron here - trying to look like I'm not trying).

Wearing the olive green hues again - this has been a favorite color of mine so far this fall. What colors do you find yourself wearing a lot so far these cooler months?

  2. I really like this look on you. It looks very effortless, regardless of your process to get it that way! I love olive green. I would wear it every day, if I could. It is my favorite in the fall.

    1. I'm a big fan of olive green myself this fall - it goes with almost everything, I think.

  3. I love this outfit! You don't look like you tried hard at all, I was literally like, "Ah, that's effortless," so well played! ;) Also, your hair is looking very pretty! Did you have highlights put in or somethin'? *scratches head*

    I have been MASSIVELY obsessed with that wine red/purple colour that is everywhere. That and brown, blush and, weirdly for me, BLACK. Autumn commeth, and thus my brain breaketh, as Shakespeare might have said... ;)

    1. You'd look awesome in that deep wine color, especially paired with brown or blush or black!

      And yes, I have highlights, though I've been growing my hair out, so instead of highlights, I guess they can be considered the "ombre" effect now, hehe.

  5. Are you kidding? This looks great!
    I too am wearing a lot of olive green. I just love this color and all of the military influenced jackets. Thanks for the color inspiration. For some reason, I tend to pair olive with black and that can get boring. Peach looks so pretty with the olive.

    1. I agree, it's a good combo and softens the fatigue hue and keeps the pink from being too girly.
