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?

What I Wore: Suburban Safari

Not much to say today. I’m tired and work came piling in this morning. This post barely happened. That said, this was a pretty comfy outfit for working from home and running some errands. I like the olive & mustard combo, and I like these black boots. Good things all. How is your mid-week going?

What I Wore: Olive & Mustard

This is an outfit I wore last week. Yeah, I know- I’m on a mustard kick. So sue me. 🙂 I love the length of this top, though I might remove the belt loops so I can wear the belt a bit lower. I feel like it hits just a tad on the high side like this. But it’s a great color and length and comfy to boot. Triple win. I didn’t have anything specific going on this day, just work from home and a few errands I didn’t even have to get out of the car for. It was […]

What I Wore: Mustard & Stripes

This is what I wore yesterday. Yes, it’s still sunny and 80 degrees here – I know, I’m amazed, too. November! This is my perfect weather, though. Not too cold, not too hot, not dreary. If I could just freeze the weather line-up at this I would (with the occasional rainstorm so, you know, we don’t get a drought). It’s going to be a bit of a system shock when we head up to Ohio for Thanksgiving; they’ve already had snow. I love this dress. I love the color, the fact that’s it’s super-soft-comfy jersey, and -of course- its twirlability. […]

Friday Favorites: Mustard

Well, the day has come. I never thought it would, but it has. I actually like a shade of yellow. Not just tolerate-like, but actively, enthusiastically-like. Mustard yellow is now a prominent color in my wardrobe. You can see me sporting it here, and I know I’ve worn it at least twice since then, too (with some of the items in the mix-up below, even). It’s a great color to mix-and-match with, and a very autumn-appropriate color. So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pieces in this dusky gold hue: Mustard by dragonflight-dreams   For the record, […]
