Olive and White

Ready for my philosophy on colors?  When people say they can't wear certain colors, I usually argue with them.  I think the only color that I like but don't wear often is blush/light pink, because well, my skin is kind of that color, and I get washed out pretty quickly.  

Now, there are some colors I just don't really like, and those are the traditionally fall colors.  Olive, mustard, burnt orange, maroon (although I will make small exceptions for maroon).  So I decided to jump in on an instagram style challenge thing last week, but didn't really think about it.  Day one was Olive and White.  It was too hot to wear my camo jacket.  A quick mental inventory of my closet made me realize I don't have anything else olive, except for the small portion of this top.  I was going to wear my white shorts, but they looked weird with the shirt, so I swapped in the skirt and called it a day.  

Also, wearing white after labor day?  #sobrave #notreally

Cardigan: JCF  (exact)
Top: Tinley Road
Skirt: Banana Republic (similar, similar)
Sandals: Target (similar)


  1. Cute top. I happen to always where olive with white for so odd reason. Have a great weekend.


  2. This is cute! I wore a pair of white pants last week and thought the same exact thing!

  3. I generally agree with you, in that I think that some colors look better (or worse) with certain skin tones than others. But that doesn't mean that people can't wear those colors.

    Every time I wear my olive pants with white, I hear a voice in my head say "groundbreaking". Get out of my head, Miranda!
