These olive green pants are another one of my favorite Fall staples. I can’t express how much I try to purchase versatile clothing. I used to be pretty irresponsible when it came to purchasing closet items. I would buy endless number of ‘cute’ tops and inexpensive shoes. I began to realize how much money I was WASTING on things I wasn’t wearing more than one or two times, because they didn’t match anything else I had, or were of poor quality. I ended up with a haphazard wardrobe. That induced just a few closet purges.
I started to pay more attention to what I was buying. I try to think of at least 3 different outfits or occasions per item I’m contemplating. I also try to think of other colors in my closet that would coordinate with whatever I’m deciding to buy.
Another thing that has really helped me become a smarter shopper is this book, called Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth L. Cline. It truly opened my eyes to consumerism in general. One thing in particular: the quality of items we’re buying.
Ok, back to topic…these AG green pants. This color matches EVERYTHING for Fall. I LOVE, love, love it with this blush color. It also looks pretty stellar with mustard yellow, navy, brown, black, gray…
These pants (AG from Anthropologie) are soooo soft too. Even after washing, they keep their softness. AG is also a USA made brand.
Boots are from Aldo Shoes about 5 years ago.
Top is by Sugar Lips from Dillards a few years ago. Belt is also from Anthropologie. Jade necklace was my Grandma’s. Purse is vintage. Jessica Simpson cat eye sunglasses.
On an end note, I love that the trees are noticably changing now! (obviously the trees were still pretty green when these pics were taken a couple weeks ago) Driving through the park now makes you shout: “It’s FALL”! So start a bon fire, pour the cider and snuggle up in that cozy sweater and boots, and enjoy it while it lasts! :)
