I can remember a time when I wore camo to work and one of my co-workers asked if it was dress up day. In elementary school we often had dress up days so when she posed the question to a room full of teachers after I left the room I recognized it for what it was. Snark. No worries, I turned right around and re-entered the room to announce that it was in fact called FASHION. That was probably a good 8 or 9 years ago and camo has become much more common so I doubt anyone would ask that again.
Maybe the lesson today is more than styling camo – maybe what I should be writing about is how to respond to snarky women. Another time. But know this – the best defense is a great offense. In other words – be confident in your appearance and don’t let anyone steal your sparkle. They can try but they can’t unless you let them.
I recently updated my camo pants my old pair just wasn’t doing it for me any longer. I wanted a darker print and a better fit. These checked all the boxes.
Camo is such a fun print to play with! I’m sharing 3 of my favorite ways to style camo pants but don’t be fooled – the possibilities are endless!
Camo Pants and Blazer
Last Friday we went to dinner with our best friends. Central Florida had a couple days of cooler weather so a light blazer was perfect. If you are dipping your toe in the camo pants pool this is a safe way to go. Keeping all things neutral.
I love this blazer! I found it on clearance at H&M for $20. The ruched sleeves are ideal for someone like me who usually rolls them! It is lined and well made – gotta love an H&M blazer!
Camo Pants with Hot Pink
My name is Kellyann and I am addicted to hot pink. There I said it and you already know it. But y’all isn’t hot pink fabulous with camo? But just in case you don’t love hot pink, feel free to substitute any color – camo is a neutral! My top is a few years old but here’s an option from the same brand and it’s under $30 and comes in several colorways!
I wore this same top just last week with faux leather leggings.
Now this look is so easy to pull off. I’ll be wearing this in a few weeks when I head to Nashville – perfect traveling and exploring outfit.
I don’t have much need for fleece sweatshirts but a lightweight cotton version has my name all over it. I now have two of these and I’m looking for the right color to come along to add a 3rd. Check out the sweatshirt here.
A wedge sneaker is comfortable and perfect for a kicked up casual look. Ideal for those of you (like me) who like heels but want the comfort of a sneaker.
My favorite post from last week’s link up was Empower Your White Blouse by my friend Jodie. I love this look and of course Jodie’s creativity!
