Camo Everything + Link Up

|
Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well so far! Blogging kept me accountable once again and after Monday's post about building friendships for myself and my kids, I followed through and arranged for them to meet up at the trampoline park with several friends. They had a blast and it felt good to help them make the most of their day off. Speaking of kids, they often have funny comments when I wear anything camouflage, like the camo jeans I'm wearing today. I've done a complete 180 from a couple of years ago when I felt uncomfortable wearing camo print. Now it's my current favorite print, and I'm just waiting for my family to get used to it so they'll stop asking if I'm going hunting that day!

Outfit Details:
Everything I'm wearing (except my simple bar necklace) is a repeat item today, but in case you missed these pieces in previous posts, here's a quick review of the details. These camo jeans might be my most-worn item of the past six months. They're true to size, comfortable, and just something fun and a little different from my standard blue jeans. When I first got them I shared six outfit ideas for them in this post, so this makes at least seven ways to wear them if you're wondering about versatility.

I'm wearing a size Small in this sweater, and it's a lighter weight, non-itchy sweater. It works great for my current weather but might only be a Spring sweater for some. My boots are true-to-size but almost sold out and unfortunately I couldn't find a good lower-priced similar option. The closest I could find are these (currently $119), but I wanted to warn you of the higher price before linking them as "similar" to my less expensive Target pair. 

Camo Collection:
At the moment, my camo collection consists of the jeans above, two camo jackets, two t-shirts (long and short sleeve), and pair of shorts. I should probably stop there because it was embarrassing just writing that list! But I won't lie...I've been tempted by some other pieces like shoes, leggings, a workout tank top or joggers for around the house. A lot of higher end brands are still offering plenty of camo options, so I don't see it going anywhere soon.


1. Z Supply Pants/Leggings (The Camo Pants)
2. Spanx Leggings (Seamless Camo - I've read so many rave reviews for Spanx leggings!)
3. Steven Shoes (Cody)
4. Jeffrey Campbell Shoes (Siren)

My first camo purchase (my gateway purchase, so to speak) was a jacket from Express. If you don't have anything camo, a jacket is a great place to start, and there are two current options that I'd be considering if I didn't have mine. I am also loving some of the current camo pieces at Express (of course!):
1. Twill Camo Jacket
2. Cropped Camo Jacket
3. Camo Sweatshirt
4. Camo Terry Leggings
5. Camo Leggings

I have yet to wear multiple camo pieces together, but at this rate I've got a Halloween costume in the making if I wear all of my camo pieces in one oufit! I think I just need to add those Jeffrey Campbell boots to my collection to really make it a head-to-toe look!

    1. Thanks Mica! Your comment makes me wonder if the camo trend is stronger in the States right now than other countries? Interesting!

    1. You make a good point, Lisa! Not all camo prints are created equal and although I've found plenty of pieces I love...there's a lot out there that I don't think looks as nice. It's definitely worth giving it another try in a more subtle version.

    2. P.S. In case you see this Lisa - I tried commenting on your blog (twice!) and it would not go through for me. :( Or maybe it did and is just waiting approval. Sorry about that!

  7. Those jeans were made for you! Love them with the pop of white! It’s so funny how we become enamored with certain things. Right now, I’m on a mauve/rust color kick!
