HOW I’M STYLING OLIVE GREEN FOR FALL

Wearing olive green for fall is almost like saying wearing florals for spring. It is a given, but it hasn’t always been that way for me. I never wore olive green for fall or any other season. It was a color that I detested, and I probably said those three little words that I’m having to eat; “I will never.” I know we should be careful about saying never, and this is one time it came back to bite me in the butt.

Before we continue, let me tell you a quick story. When Joe plays golf, he always takes off his wedding band because it cuts into his hand when he swings the club. He usually will stick it in his golf bag, but there have been occasions where he will put it in the car, the golf cart, his shorts, etc.  On more than one occasion, he has lost the ring for a day or two, but he has always managed to find it. HOWEVER, this time, he lost it for over a week, and he was starting to panic. He searched the car several times, emptied out his golf bag twice, called the golf course to see if anyone turned it in, and went through his clothing. He had already given up and asked me to order him another one.

Last Thursday, a lady who helps me clean came walking through the kitchen and said, did you lose something? She was holding Joe’s ring, and I laughed while asking her where she found it. It was in his shorts pocket, you know, the ones he had looked through. I took a photo and sent it to him, and he called me within seconds. He couldn’t believe the ring had been found, and he came home to grab it. I had to tease him just a tad, but he had felt so bad for losing it that I gave him a break. He now has a plan on where he is putting his ring when he plays golf, but I wouldn’t take bets that he won’t lose it again.

Everything in this outfit seems to be pretty true to size. The jeans are the only thing that seems to be big on me, but that is probably the style more that the size. I love the entire outfit, and I think that wearing olive green for fall is now my go-to color. I have to also include chocolate brown and black on that list, and all three are colors that I’ve shied away from in the past. Gurls, try new things constantly; your taste changes, and so does your coloring.

I loved the sweater tank so much that I ordered it in several colors. Besides the Iguana Green, I ordered Dune Red, Natural Stone, and Preppy Navy. I also ordered the matching cardigan in Dune Red and Navy. I almost ordered the Iguana Green, but since I already have the Twill Utility Jacket, I decided I didn’t need both.

This bag is gorgeous and perfect for my olive green for fall post.  I love the size and style; however, it is on the expensive side, so I’ll post some below that will give you a similar look, but at a better price point. I styled this bag with chocolate brown, and they really looked great together.

Dainty, layered necklaces are what’s trending for fall. I love wearing a couple of dainty necklaces in the opening of a top, but I LOVE long necklaces with sweaters. I might have to balk when it comes to my longer necklaces. Remember, choose what you like and what works for you, let the rest slide. Here are some affordable options:

I’m surprised that I like the Barrel Jeans. I had decided I didn’t like them, but after looking at these photos, I changed my mind. Now I’m on the fence…what do you think? Are these a keeper, or will I not get enough wear from them to justify the purchase?

These boots I LOVE! I could wear these every day; I love them that much. The color is gorgeous, deep and rich looking, and I like the higher shaft and chunky heel.

The rain has stopped, at least for a little while, and I am loving the sunshine. I am quickly taking as many photos as possible since it might start raining again at any moment. I wanted to thank everyone who took the time to leave me a comment about my blog and YouTube. From the responses, it seems like almost none of my followers are part of the 85 million people on YouTube. So, I need to process that information and decide how to proceed while looking for an entirely different audience. I do love a challenge, so I’m going to DREAM BIG and start small!
