When I saw Joy’s post about mixing green, camel, and blush pink, I knew I had to give it a try myself. This is a color combination I never would have thought to put together, but actually go together quite nicely. I think the overall tones of the outfit really complement each other and make for a great look. It’s a way to really bring a lot of color to an outfit without it being too ‘in your face’ about it. Perfect for those who aren’t big on color, but want to switch it up a little bit from the usual black/white/grey palette.
Here’s what I did.
When I mentally prepared this outfit in my head, the blouse and vest immediately came to mind. The camel part of the outfit was the hardest, I had to go into my closet to figure out what I was going to use. I actually don’t own one pair of traditional khakis, I’ve never had to a reason to buy them. When I was working, I wore scrubs every day and khakis were never something I thought to wear in my off time. I’m just more of a jeans type of girl. But this old lace tiered skirt I got from Marshall’s a few years ago filled the void well enough.
The blush colored blouse is from H&M last year, but it seems to be a staple in their stores because I saw it there a couple of weeks ago in some other colors. My cousin was also wearing it the other day in black! For some reason I couldn’t find it on the website, but I’ll link something similar here. The color I have is a bit sheer so you’d want to have a tank to wear underneath. The green utility vest is American Rag that I ordered online from Macy’s. It cinches in at the waist with a drawstring to give it more shape and it’s a great fall layering piece. It’s on sale now for around $50, but if you’re interested, just wait for the next holiday if you can. They add additional discounts around those times, so I got mine for $38 dollars around Columbus Day weekend.
I kept it neutral with some old taupe suede booties from Steve Madden, but added a pop of color with a red structured crossbody bag. I’d been seeing these furry poofs all over the place lately as a little bag accessory and I couldn’t help but jump in on the trend. This one was super cheap on Amazon (just search for fur bag keychain) at only 7ish dollars. I actually ordered two in the grey color so I could give one to my sister, but beware, they aren’t all alike. The coloring and shape can be a little different, I had to spend some time fluffing mine up to get looking nice and round. Still, not bad for less than $10.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks to Joy for the outfit inspiration!
