Random roundup - Olive Obsession

Let's be real. If I put together a post with all my random outfit selfies where I'm wearing olive, you'd be scrolling for an eternity. But a few weeks ago, I participated in a week long Instagram style challenge (check out hashtag here) and the challenge was all about olive and a few of its best pairings. I thought I'd go ahead and share some of my favorites from that week!

Necklaces: CS Gems (c/o) (options here and here) | Jacket: Express (current colors here) | Top: Express | Bracelet: Nadri | Skirt: Express (option here) | Heels: BCBG (option here)

First up is the olive and stripes combination. I have a ton of stripes in my collection, so this was a pretty easy pairing. This midi skirt is still one of my most favorites in my collection.

Necklace: Purple Peridot (option) | Bag: Tory Burch | Top: Express (Express) | Bracelet: JCrew FactoryBottoms: Express (option) | Heels: Valentino

Next up was olive and leopard. Though, really, I did leopard with my previous outfit, and this bag is really ocelot, not leopard, but you get the idea! And this reminds me that I need to take my flare jeans out for a spin again! I really love the fit of these, though I really can't ever give up my skinnies.

Scarf: Kohl's (gifted) | Top: Express | Bracelet: JCrew Factory | Bracelet: CS Gems (c/o) | Bottoms: Express (40% off!) | Heels: Vince Camuto (option)

Olive and white was surprisingly a hard combo for me. But, it's a lot harder when all of your white pants are dirty. Oops. Luckily, I had just gotten these olive ponte knit pants, so I just paired my favorite knot tee and threw on a scarf to finish out the look.

Hot pink and olive was another combo in the challenge, and I ended up replicating the outfit I wore back in the day HERE. I'm still pretty obsessed with that look! And not on the challenge list was wine and olive, but since wine is one of my most favorite things to pair olive with, I wanted to go ahead and share that as my fifth outfit for this post! I just recently wore the combo in this post HERE.


Short and sweet for you today. Admittedly, I feel like I'm fighting a cold and really just need a good night's sleep! I had one good sneeze at the office this afternoon and have been stuffy and groggy ever since! There's no time to be sick! It's post season baseball!!!! Have a great weekend!



  1. Love that color and the 3th look is my fave! Pretty!

  2. I need new olive skinnies mine are too big, I am obsessed too! Love that color.


  3. I think the olive challenge was one of my favorites too! It was fun to see how much I've accumulated and how many possible pairings there were. I think my favorite is here is #1! But really...you know I love olive them. ;)

  4. I never used to like olive, but this year I'm obsessed with it! I just picked up an olive henley from Target and I can't wait to wear it. Love all of your looks, especially the leopard with olive. Great combo!

  5. I'm obsessed with your striped skirt, love how you styled it! Love, Kirsten xx
