What's Trending This Week: Olive

I have a conspiracy theory about this week's trend. There's a song that's been popular on the radio for awhile, and I think it has a subliminal message that's worked its way into all of our heads and is making everyone (including me) want to wear more olive. Song name: All of Me by John Legend. Can't you just hear him singing.,"Olive me....Olive you...." over and over again? See what I mean??

Anyway, here are just a few examples of some fairly recent olive purchases:
Olive Jacket: LOFT / Tee: Old Navy / Necklace: Express / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society

Olive Tank: Old Navy / Necklace: Express / Jacket: Express / Jeans: Express / Sandals: Old Navy

Olive Pants: Express  / Sweater: Express / Cami: Express / Necklace: Express / Sandals: Target

Olive Tee: Target / Shorts: J Crew / Necklace: Express Sandals: Nordstrom

And if olive you (ahem) love olive (clothes like) me, a little outfit inspiration is in order for pairing olive the pieces you've collected lately. My next stop needs to be this olive and white pairing as shown on Jasmin, Carylee and Sheila:

This week there's another #IGOutfitChain happening with an easy olive + black outfit formula. Instead of putting these in a collage like I've done before I'm posting them in succession to make for easy pinning to Pinterest (not to mention it makes it easier for me to include late additions!). I think this might be the longest chain yet and it keeps growing!

I think we had almost every combination in there of sleeve length, skirts, pants and shorts! As usual, check in with these ladies on Instagram for any specific outfit details, and mine are included in the front-view photo up top. And let me know if I've persuaded you to believe in my John Legend conspiracy theory! See you back on Friday for an outfit recap and some other favorites of the week.

  21. I love your outfit chains. I have been thinking I need some more olive in my wardrobe lately so I guess the subliminal messages are working. :) It's such a good color.
