Friday Favorites - Olive You

Fall is probably my favorite season. I love the crispness in the air (or, at least in LA, the promise of crispness!), the turning of the leaves, eating apples, making homey dinners, and wearing cozy sweaters. And even though I no longer attend school, September is still, in my mind, the beginning of school and so, I still associate it with "Fall shopping." There's just something about those new sweaters and boots that gets me as excited as a teen! I'm going to do a post on Fall trends soon, so for now I just wanted to focus on an item that I love and that isn't necessarily a new trend, but is nonetheless evocative of Fall. Olive is one of those colors. And though you can wear it year round, and I definitely do, it just says "Fall" to me. Whether you call it olive, moss, army, or khaki green, it works well with the other Fall neutrals of grey and brown, and can work in both casual and dressy situations. And, it looks amazing with both black and white (and we know how I love those colors!)

Beyond gorgeous! Love this whole outfit!

Here Olivia Palermo mixes her olive jacket with browns and tans, along with a scarf in black and white. 

Olive green cargos with gingham - LOVE!

Great coat!

Okay, this sweater might be slightly dark to be considered olive, but I'm going with it anyway! Love it! And those shoes!!

Love olive with black!

Great blouse!

Looks great with white (this is when you can still wear your olive come Spring!

This coat though! But seriously, I'm loving the olive with the grey/silver of the coat - it works so well!

Olive on olive.
