Olive a Sale

Olive a sale, how about you?  Get it?  Sounds like I love a sale? Alright, alright.  Let’s get to it.  Did you shop any of the Labor Day sales?  I did not.  Not that there weren’t great sales to be had because there were and many are still going strong.  The Labor Day holiday has me all kinds of messed up, today feels like Monday not Tuesday so I decided to post today rather than tomorrow.  Also because I want to give you a head’s up because my favorite olive green utility pants are on sale! That’s right, they are on sale! I bought mine during the Anniversary Sale and they sold out. Now they’re back at an even better price! Here are a few of the ways I’ve worn mine:

I love the fit of these pants! The mid to high rise smooths out that area where even the thinnest girl has the potential for a little muffin top. They are super comfortable and stretchy enough that they hold their shape without becoming baggy. The lenght is perfect too – as you can see I’ve worn mine with sneakers, sandals, and my favorite wedges.
Have you worn olive pants? If you’re unsure what you can wear olive with here’s the truth: anything you would normally wear khaki with you can wear olive with! So simple, olive is a neutral, you can’t mess this up!

Olive looks great with muted colors and brights alike.  I love it with my hot pink top from Shein in the photo at the top.  Actually I am just getting started with all the ways I plan to style these pants. They look super cute with my new booties (on sale). Pictures to come of that perfect union!

If you are on the fence about trying these pants go for it, with Nordstrom’s free shipping and free returns you have no worries! But order now before they sell out! For reference I am wearing a size 27 (4). I know you’ll love them as much as olive mine (sorry I had to do that).

Nordstrom is having an awesome end of the season sale so I am linking some of my favorites below. For those of us living in warm climates we still have a few more months before we break out cardigans or jackets so we might as well enjoy new clothes we can actually wear! I am dying over this bell sleeve top for less than $18 , this floral embroidered bomber jacket for less than $30these skinny jeans for under $40, and this necklace for under $10. I have the necklace and I love it, for under $10 it makes a great gift too!

I appreciate you stopping by and your comments make my day! There is a threat of a possible hurricane coming our way, I am currently praying it stays out in the ocean and doesn’t make landfall anywhere but we shall see. If all goes well I’ll have another post for you this week!

      Thanks Jacqui! Even the sale price was more than I really like to spend on pants but they have been worth every penny. A good lesson for me indeed, some things are definitely worth a little more!

    Olive is such a fantastic color and it combines with any other color. Those trousers are great, and you styled them fabulous!

    I should get the pants, you always look so cute in them!! I did not shop the sales, too busy buying home decor. I probably should start thinking ahead to the fashion blog posts too, lol. Have a great day back at school pretty lady!!

      Thanks Andrea! Yes, these pants would be adorable on you – especially with your pink Adidas! Shopping for home decor sounds like so much fun – so exciting!!!! I can’t wait to see what you got!
      I am keeping my fingers crossed this hurricane doesn’t come our way! It looks like we’re going to have a wet week ahead which makes taking blog pictures so difficult. And that sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? I’m worried about blog pictures when a hurricane is on it’s way and can cause massive destruction, ugh, I need a smack!
      Hope you’re enjoying the short week!

    You rock those pants gorgeous friend!!! I returned mine and now I’m just about ready to pull the trigger again…especially since they are such a great deal. I hear ya’ on being messed up about what day it is. I will be confused all week too. I’m back home and ready to roll with all the things I need to do to catch up where I was gone, but not until I “talk” with my bestie blogging buddies. Have a great day Kellyann!!! XOXO

      You are so sweet and I am glad you’re checking in, I look forward to hearing from you each day – isn’t that crazy?! The internet is a strange and wonderful thing, I am so happy to have so many lovely women in my life that I call friends – virtually or otherwise it’s a blessing!
      Now, these pants, what the heck? They are $2 cheaper now, I thought the lowest price for the season was going to be the price they were during the anniversary sale! Too crazy, but you should go for it, I bet they are adorable on you and they will look great with that orangey-red handkerchief hem top we have!
      Welcome back beautiful friend!

    As I’ve gotten older I am all about mid to higher rise pants! They are so much more flattering! I’ve been making a wish list for after pregnancy and new olive pants are definitely on my list! I will have to check this pair out if they are still around! They look amazing on you!

    I love olive pants because they truly go with everything. You styled them so many cute ways – I’ll have to steal some of your ideas!

      Carrie, I used to be the same way, hardly ever wore mine or when I did it was always with beige! I hope you have fun wearing yours in new ways, it’s always nice when we can remix pieces we already own!

  6. September 14, 2017 / 5:43 am

    Kellyann, I love a good pair of olive pants! I need to pull mine out soon…except we are hitting temperatures in the 80’s week, so maybe next week! I love all the ways you have styled them. I, too, really like olive with pinks…any shade of pink really! Great post! Fantastic style! Thanks for linking up.

      Thanks Shelbee! It’s still so hot here but wearing olive makes me at least think Fall is coming soon!

  7. September 14, 2017 / 2:38 pm

    So many fabulous ways to style olive pants! I really like your black off the shoulder look. It has been ages since I have worn my olive pants and you are inspiring me to remedy that soon. 🙂

    Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
