earlybird olive.

this weekend, we went to a yummy local steakhouse to celebrate a double birthday!  {my mom + one of her closest friends}.  not wanting to do jeans and not wanting to be too overdressed, i went with this awesome calvin klein military dress that i recently scored at tj maxx {holler}:


i'm totally adoring all things olive right now.  donna karan's pre-fall '11 runway was littered with militant olive, which inspired the look above except i decided to soften it up with one of my favorite color combos, olive + pale pink.  this should go to show that your look doesn't have to be matchy-matchy to work.  play with a trend that you're loving, but tailor it to make it your own.  do you prefer stripes to florals?  play and see if it works!

there are multiple ways to wear olive!  will you choose a dress, blouse, shortie, cargo pant, jacket or even a handbag?  a few more looks for your viewing pleasure:
