I’ve noticed something about my wardrobe recently… if it’s not olive green, I probably haven’t purchased it as of late. Seriously, it’s all I wear. It started before I went to Africa when I went verrrry literal when planning my safari outfit. haha I happen to think everyone looks good in the color too, so sue me.

I thought I would share some of my favorite looks here so you can see the many many ways I’ve styled some of the same pieces, as well as how versatile it is.

Military Jacket: 
This piece was the gateway drug. I’d been looking for a cute jacket like this for years actually and I love the lightweight fabric and the drawstring waist which adds shape and makes the fit more flattering. It comes in two other colors and regular and tall sizing which always excites me. I’ve dressed it up and down as you’ll see below. I’m also really feeling this moto vest I found via www.octer.com (Look for links in the captions to shop.)

Joggers:
I
 love this style of pant and for the longest I couldn’t find one that flattered me. I have hips and I thought this style looked best on girls that didn’t. However, I love the way these fit and I love them with literally any shoe – a pump, sandal, sneaker, etc. and they look great with a t-shirt, blazer, etc. I’ve spent a 24 hour travel day in them and I’ve also worn them to happy hour. What are you waiting for? You need them. (They also come in black.)

Dressed up a little bit - heels, a fitted top, and great bag made this great for wearing to work and then straight to cocktails. Winnnn! Shop the look here.

As casual as it gets with my beloved croc sandals. (I'm not joking, no I wasn't paid to say that - I'm just owning my that comfort and not caring about the brand like a boss - and you would too if you felt how insanely comfortable these sandals are.) Shop the look here.

The denim jacket has also been worn 1,000 times as of late. Shop the look here.

Jumpsuit:
Gosh I love a good jumpsuit. It’s an entire outfit in one piece. You don’t even have to think about it. Just throw on shoes of your choice – booties, pumps, heeled sandals, etc., and you look effortless and chic. So comfortable too. Keep in mind that I’m 5’8 1/2″ and this fits me great! I even rolled the legs a little bit for a slightly cropped look which you could also do if you’re shorter. What a cute fit, eh? I’ve also attached some of my other favorite jumpsuits here.

That classic over-the-shoulder... lol Shop the look here.

There you have it – just a small snippet of my olive obsession. I also own a shirt dress, a tank, and a cowl neck sweater… and there are a pair of rag and bone booties that I have all the heart eye emojis for. Are you guys as obsessed with olive as me?

PS: Big thank you to Kelleigh Bannen for taking the majority of these pics.

This month’s playlist has so much poppy goodness. Multiple Ariana Grande and Gavin DeGraw tunes. Seriously so good. A John Legend song from the soundtrack of “Southside With You” is so beautiful and brings the romance. “Victory” brought to you by two geniuses, Pharrell and Kirk Franklin will have you swaying in your car. New finds include everything Walker Hayes (a local guy who I think could blow up!) – his honesty, individuality, and infectous beats and melodies make him stick out from your average Nashville country artist. Also, be sure to check out “This Head I Hold” by Electric Guest, this upbeat throwback tune will be an instant favorite.

As always, I need to know what you guys are listening to! Comment below!
