Even though summer isn’t technically over for a few more weeks, today usually marks a fresh start for a lot of us. A new week, a new month, a new semester, a new season. When it comes to outfits over the next few weeks, I have a feeling Chicago will be jumping right into fall and skipping any chances of a lingering summer. However, I know a lot of you are based in climates where it will still be H-O-T for quite a few more weeks. It’s hard when you’re ready to transition to a new season, but the weather isn’t really cooperating. (I instantly think of New York in April… Just get warm already!) Whenever I’m in the fall mindset, but it still feels like the dead of summer, I gravitate towards mixing olive green with some of my quintessential summer pieces, like this lace midi skirt.
Olive green has always been one of my favorite colors to wear. (I’m sure any blondes out there can relate!) Truth is, olive green looks good on everyone, not just blondes. And while it usually ends up in more fall/winter collections, you can definitely wear the color year round! It’s essentially a neutral, just like navy.
When I wore this outfit to speak at the Create & Cultivate conference in Chicago a few weeks ago, I kept joking that I looked like a zoo keeper. Or, Safari Chic, if you will. If only I would have had a leopard clutch to really give off the animal caretaker vibe! 😉
