Olive Green


Jacket - Forever 21 (Similar here) ; Top - Forever 21 (Similar here) ; Jeans - H&M (Similar here, here, and here) ; Espadrilles - Aldo (Similar here)

A few things that I wanted to mention:

1) I'm guest posting on Sophisticated In Style and talking about my favorite Spring trend (Olive Green). Check out the feature and feel free to share your thoughts! Thank you so much for featuring me on your blog, Lauren! 
2) I need to invest in a camera with a tripod and take my own pics. Do you take your own pics? I know Franziska does. Any other bloggers out there? Any advice for me?
3) Found this on Cupcakes & Cashmere...you can make a donation for Boston here.
4) The End.

  1. Hey you. You look great as usual. Another awesome blazer. I am liking the Earthy Colors. I just left you a comment on your previous post too so check that out.

    I will check out the Guest Post too & I like Sophisticated in Style's blog too. I would love to see you as a redhead. Laceup Booties & shoes are all the rage right now, I featured 3 on this week's Best Looks where I also FEATURED YOU. I already have a pair but from years ago - styles get recycled. Yes, I take my own photos at home ala no Tripod.

    Ohhh and please check out my previous comment too because I asked you a very important question. Thank You. =)

    Have a Great New Week, Ada. =)

  3. Can i just say that while it might seem like a good idea honestly your hair is so pretty and it has its own highlights that I would just put a few natural highlights in it but you have lovely hair - dont fix what aint broken! x

  9. Those pants fit you like a glove! My hair has been dyed so many different colors so I say go for it :) I've been lazy lately and been using the same boring background for my photos too...I should change it up too.

  11. 1. You look super cute. 2. Very col about the young Hollywood article 3. Comments on background really bother me. There are many very successful bloggers like your self (putting me together, J's everyday,etc) who always have the same background. Do what works for you, that's what matters. :)

  12. This is a great neutral outfit, and the pants look great on your legs! I say stay with your hair color (I think is gorgeous and beautiful), but nevertheless do what makes you HAPPY, thats the important part! I've been seeing lace up booties/shoes pop up everywhere, I really like the black pairs (they're a bit more fierce and make a statement)! Have a great Monday! xx

    1. Thank you so much Kajal! Really appreciate your feedback! Every few years I get bored and want change. I did a bob cut a few years ago, then tried to go blonde, then went back to brunette, now I want red lol:)!

  13. Olive green is one of the colors I'm on the look out for! I love greens right now - olive, mint, emerald.. obsessed. Great pairing with the brown leather!

    1. Rachel I hear you! I don't love this pair very much b/c excuse me for saying this...they are too high rise and kinda give that camel toe effect (which I hate), but they were on the more affordable side.

  20. Red hair would look amazing on you! I take my own blog pictures (most of the time! Here is a post where I used my tripod and here are photos my boyfriend took) and still struggle to change the background. I feel so awkward dragging my tripod out where other people are so I only go places where I'm sure there won't be onlookers!

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback Chelsea! That is my concern....even if I invest in a new camera and a tripod...I would feel awkward taking my own pics in public. I hate...HATE....taking my pics around others...in fact...I won't do it...I make sure no one is around. I'm so confused...

  21. Love this outfit. Olive and brown are great colours for you. REd hair would look really nice, would take time to get used to, but would look nice.

  22. Yes, on coloring your hair. But take my advice with a grain of salt - I've never experimented with hair because I'm a wuss, but I think the red would look lovely on you!

  23. To me your hair is gorgeous, may be a bit of sun kissed highlight (just my ten cents) and the laced up booties are all equally nice, well maybe the one on Emily looks better coz it is in black and she's super fair. You look great in this outfit, the brown and green go well together!

  26. That colour of your Jacket goes really well with the olive coloured trousers! You look fab!
    About the hair colour, it could look good on you, but I would recommend you try a red-brown instead of full red... but maybe that's just me.
    And about your photo brackgroud, I think it is alright. :)

  30. These earthy colours suit you very well.
    Your hair is gorgeous anyway but I understand, sometimes we need a change and love the Emma Stone Red (as in the first photo).
    I am thinking about an own DSLR these days as well... I don't want to invest a huge amount though.

  33. Haha...that's so funny that people are commenting on your background. Unless you have a DSLR + lens that helps to "blur" the background I actually prefer a blank wall. It's less distracting and helps keep the focus on your outfit. And you have beautiful hair as it is! But I'm sure you'd look good as a red head too. :-)

  34. Love this look - jacket is so cute.
    I don't mind your background at all, but then I use the same background every day!
    I like the consistency. I use a tripod and take my own pics and it is just easier if I stand in the same spot.
    Then again I am not the best person to give advice since I don't do head shots Lol!

  36. LOVE the jacket - so cute on you! And I switch up between taking my own pics and having my hubs help (depending on whether or not he's in town!). If you DO decide to take your own pics, I highly recommend getting a remote (if your camera has that accessory option) - makes things SO much easier!

  43. Amazing outfit! I think you'd look good as a ginger, but you'd have to get just the right dye...a lot of times dyed red hair looks bad. But, if you get a good dye, I think it'll look great!
