Olive You

Did you know that you if you mouth the words “olive you” to someone it will look like you’re saying “I love you?” Try it.  It’s true.  I’m the worst lip reader but when my co-worker told me this I thought it was so funny! So if we’re ever out together don’t try to have me read your lips because I can’t and I’m likely just to mouth back “olive you” because I think it’s funny!

Anyhow, you saw these last week.  While it’s still too hot and humid to wear them right now I am scheming different ways I’ll style them once it’s no longer a bajillion (totally a word) degrees.  In fact I came up with three to share but I’m not done yet, you’ll see them plenty this Fall.  And Winter. All 2 weeks of it, lol.

Like I said last week, these utility pants are super comfortable. They are on sale for $49 right now and since that’s more than I would normally spend on a pair of pants they need to be worth every penny. Versatility is key for me because I want fewer but better quality pieces in my closet. Since I’ll be starting back to school soon my first look is casual and perfect for a day we’re allowed to wear tennis shoes. I’m wearing my new graphic tee (similar). Of course I am wearing my favorite cuff from Accessory Concierge because it is my go to bracelet. I’m also carrying this clutch that’s part of the sale.

In this second outfit I paired the utility pants with a blush, ruffled top. I purchased it last Spring. Olive and blush work so well together. I am wearing my lace up heels and my Kendra Scott necklace. You may remember I bought these for my birthday. Sadly I wore them and got blisters on my toes so I returned them and ended up getting a pair from Target. The ones from Target work better on my feet. Who knew? Keep in mind that the these have gotten rave reviews and I have funky feet, really, not normal. If I didn’t already own one I’d get this Kendra Scott necklace. I wear mine all the time, it’s such a great quality piece that won’t turn your neck green!

This third look is a great one for a night out. Again the utility pants but this time with an OTS black blouse. I purchased this one last November and wore it for Christmas Eve but it’s so versatile it can be worn year round in my climate. I found a dead ringer for my blouse available at a fraction of the cost for you here for under $13! I chose one of my favorite necklaces and my Vionic block heel sandals. Yup, I’m wearing cognac because it’s the closest to nude but you could wear black. But it’s totally okay to wear black and brown together, there’s no need to be matchy matchy.

Olive green is a neutral color, a lot like khaki, that will work so well with just about anything. Chambray, pink, orange, prints, you name it. Now if you’re not quite ready to spend $49 but you’d like to add a pair of olive green pants to your closet I found a few options for you! Check out these from Old Navy:

And these from Target:

Great options, right? No doubt over the coming weeks and months you’ll see me in these cargo pants plenty and I can’t wait to wear them with lots of different tops and jackets. Do you own any olive pants? Are you thinking of getting a pair? Remember,the Nordstrom sale is great but it’s not the only game in town. If you see something you like and it’s sold out, keep checking. If it never restocks move on, you will find something you were meant to have. That’s the way the universe works my friends. Ok, before I wax poetic on you, let me wish you the happiest of Mondays and thank you for reading!

    1. Thanks Jaymie, I think you’d love olive pants, they’re really so versatile and a little more interesting than khaki. There are so many on the market right now so if you don’t get these I’m sure you’ll find another pair.

  2. One word…AWESOME!!! Thanks for sharing the versatility of those pants. I ordered them and I’ve reordered in Petite. Then I just have to decide between those and an olive pair of KUT ones I also got. Decisions, decisions. All those looks are great and I love how you wore them casual and a little more dressed up. Great job! Happy Monday sweet friend!!!

    1. Thanks Lisa! Olive is just so much fun to style, ya know? I had a pair a few years ago and they didn’t fit very well so I donated them. Then regret set in and I started my search for a new pair. Even bought a pair from Old Navy last year but the color just wasn’t quite right and I ended up not really wearing them. These are just the perfect color so I’m glad my search is over. That sounds so dramatic,right? Lol. Anyhow, I still have to decide on this dang clutch! I was all set to return it but then looking at the pictures I kind like it too much to return. Must be my hormones because I can’t make a decision! Happy Monday beautiful friend, you really have the best smile!

  3. Kellyann,
    I love the different ways you have styled your olive pants. I purchased a pair on the sale rack at Chico’s late this spring and wore when with a black tee on a trip up north in June. I can’t wait to start wearing them again…you are so right about the BAJILLION degree heat here in Florida!


    1. Thanks Rosemary! It takes another Floridian to understand the intense heat here. In about 4 months or so we can start wearing long pants again and I am looking forward to that!

  4. Olive those pants and the fit. Love them with vans and especially with leopard. So cute with the tee! Happy Fall shopping/creativity to you!
