Daily Outfit: It Was All Olive

I admit, when I was told during my image consulting training that the color olive was flattering on me, I was immediately resistant. Maybe because it was boring. Maybe because it was too old lady. Whatever the case, I didn’t like the idea of wearing olive. But when I found this dress, olive was non-negotiable. The angular print won me over and olive was part of the package. And now olive and me, we’re just fine.

    See Me Rwar

  6. Thanks Rebecca! Once I saw the pattern, I knew I couldn't resist. How are things going in SLC for you?

  7. You're a peach Lauren, thanks a million :)

  8. Thanks so much Kelly Jo! Glad you appreciate it.

  9. Thanks Courtney. I don't mind layering underneath the dress for warmth.

  10. Thanks Rebecca! The boots were an absolute steal — they were the last on the floor for a whopping 50% off!

  11. Rebecca H says:

    Great! Still unseasonably warm, which I love! Hope you're enjoying Seattle!

  12. That is SO strange for SLC. Seattle is great — and it seems to get more sun than people give it credit for which I'm lapping up :)

    This a great outfit and I always resist the color pink. I love your hair.

  14. choosingyou says:

    I love this dress. And you and Olive make a nice couple!

  15. Thanks Michelle! There are lots of women in your shoes who resist the color pink as well. Having short hair is a ton of fun. Very easy to maintain as well.

  16. Thanks choosingyou! Isn\’t it a fun dress? These tunic length dresses make great layering pieces and have become a staple in my closet.

    I love the hair and the style of the dress. So preppy but it has its own style to show off the world. I guess I would follow your fashion sense. So cool yet it looks fabulous.

    Fashion always go along with the choice of color. Color is one important factor to enhance the beauty of a particular thing, whether it's for fashion, photography and art. It gives a certain character. But it still how you manage yourself with that clothes put on. And you did a good job. You carried it with style and fashion. It showed in these photos.

    You're right! You are looking great with olive. The dress doesn't look boring. It's cut and pattern look good on you.

    Hello there! You look fantastic, I have to say! I love your outfit and your haircut! I have found your blog while searching for Frye boots so I hope it is ok to ask you are these Melissa Logo boots and how tall are you? I am 5'4 and I am concern about the shaft height….Thank you!

  22. Thank you Alexandria for your lovely words — this is one of my favorite pieces. By all means — I\’m 5\’6\”ish and the shaft on these Frys boots are definitely higher than most boots I have worn before. That said I have a pretty average calves so you would probably be okay. The leather is absolutely glorious though — you can totally tell that they put TLC into their craftmanship. I\’d give them a go. Worst case scenario, you take them back and get a refund. Honestly I get compliments on them all the time. Let me know how they turn out for you!

    Thank you! I will take some more time to think, I live in Europe now so it is too complicated to take them back and first of all it is not that easy to choose without trying them on first. But, I am addicted to Frye:) I have 7 Frye boots already , my first one lasts for more than 10 years now and still look perfect! Great quality and style. And they look great on you!

  24. Wow, 7 pairs of Frye boots?! Incredible. This is my first pair so I\’m stoked to hear they\’ll last for a long time :) Where in Europe do you live?
