PUYV: Khaki and Olive "Medium"

Jacket, Esley. Blouse, Body Central. Skirt, Talbot’s (thrifted). Pumps, Delicious. Belt, thrifted. Bag, Target.


Accent colors: pumpkin, pine, saffron, and wine.


In Style’s “medium” khaki and olive example

Is anyone else confused by the color In Style calls “olive” in the palette box? I assure you, it looks just as brown in the printed magazine. As brown as my "not olive" shirt today.


And one crazy picture just for hanging with me

Maybe they mean those brown-ish Mediterranean olives.

Very cute look. I am glad to see you embracing purple.

These colours *pop* on you. They look fabulous! And as for purple, who would've thought you liked to shy away from it? Not any more!

I especially like this color set. Khaki & olive are two of my wardrobe staples so looking for ways to change it up is always great.

I like this combination - it looks great together.

The jacket and your shoes are blowing my mind.

The skirt in In Style looks olive to me.

Just wondering, do you have any gold or bronze shoes (like those in the picture).

Kasmira said...

Nerida - I agree, the In Style skirt looks olive but they also call the darker color in the triangle (in the palette box) "olive."

I WISH I had gold or bronze shoes but I don't. Well, I recently bought some gold ballet flats, but they look pretty dumpy with this skirt.
