What I Wore: Olive & Stripes


What? A new actual outfit post?! Try not to be too shocked, even though I haven’t done one of these in a few weeks. I just wasn’t feeling it for awhile, but now I’m back!

So, down to business. I have been on a serious olive kick lately (the color, not the food – though I do like eating olives, too). And it’s mostly because of these pants. Guys, I am in love with these pants. And they’re corduroy. I used to hate corduroy when I was younger (just ask my mom). But they fit great, are warm and comfy, and I’m pretty sure this color of olive green goes with everything. New dream pants. I’ve been wearing them a ton, usually paired with black or grey, and pops of gold or mustard in the accessories. I also like olive + black + burgundy, so that’ll probably be popping up on the blog soon, too.

I’m also in love with these flats, and have been wearing them with pretty much everything, too. Fun print + comfy flats = perfection.

Are both of them perfect for fall? Yes. Are you probably going to get sick of outfit posts featuring them? Yes. Are you just going to have to deal with it? Yes. 😀

Do you have any new-to-your-wardrobe items that you’re wearing the heck out of this fall?
