Today I’m debuting a new wardrobe favorite: Olive pants!!! I’ve been looking for a pair for several months and was just about to give up. But in the words of Tim Allen from Galaxy Quest – “Never give up! Never surrender!” I ran across these Democracy pants at Ross the other day and just about jumped for joy. They are everything I was looking for – including the fun zipper detail on the front pockets.
Once I got home I began to panic a little – what on earth was I thinking? What would I wear with olive green pants? I headed straight to Pinterest, did a search and found a ton of great ideas. I even created a board just for “Olive Pants” because there were so many great ideas. I’ll be adding these to the regular rotation for sure. I was thrilled to find that olive really is considered a neutral color – you can mix with just about any color, pattern or style.
I figured I would start my olive odyssey with a little fun. The white lace tank and pearls give the outfit a feminine touch with the denim jacket bringing back down to casual. The orange bubble necklace brings in a pop of color that brightens the whole outfit. One style note: I rolled the pants up twice in the photo, then when I got to work my fashionista daughter suggested I roll them up one more time. It really changed the look, so I’ll do that from now on. It’s great having an honest second opinion every day!
