And then it happened. This purveyor of cheery prints and eye-burning color (I'm talking about me! me! me!) has gone to the dark side. Well, not the dark side. But the olive side, if such a side existed in the side of sides out there. After a binge eating session that doubled as a Spring runway private viewing (eating Chinese in bed and clicking through the Ralph Lauren slideshow > actually going to the show, don't it!?), I found myself craving all things olive. Perhaps it was the elegant take on safari style that Ralph Lauren sent down the laminated runway. Or maybe it was the beaded-and-bewilderingly-bejeweled Marc Jacobs mossy looks that tugged on my heart strings (see my Insta from today!). Could it have been this little crickled number from J. Crew that is the perfect throw-and-go dress on those mornings you look like a drunk raccoon - come on, don't act like that isn't every Monday morning for you!?
Anywhoo, the evergreen shades providing me some springspiration (ooh la la, see what I did there?!) are also providing me with ideas for fabulous fall looks. Pair a borrowed-from-the-boys cargo-inspired olive jacket with the most perfect pair of jeans (cuffed twice for a look with quirk!) and muted brown pumps that look much more expensive than they actually are (Zara, you are a godsend and I worship at your altar from here on in). Add a pop of color in the form of this beautiful Celine bag you should sell your unborn child for + add a vivid lip and you've got the perfect outfit in my humble but supa biased opinion!
