After last week's Weekend Wants, I became obsessed with finding at least one full skirt to add to my wardrobe, and I'm happy to say I was successful. I found an awesome olive green knee-length skirt at my local Salvation Army for only a few bucks. It's in great condition, fits perfectly and for a bonus, it's machine-washable and has pockets. I couldn't be happier. So naturally I decided that my new skirt would be the first thing I wore when I went back to work after this mini vacation. And then I immediately became stumped, because I really don't have any olive green in my wardrobe, and I could NOT figure out what I would wear it with.
Enter Pinterest, where I went in search of inspiration. Here are some of the combos I came across that caught my eye.
My first thought was to take the easy way out and pair the skirt with black. I love the idea of doing a black-and-white checked shirt with it - maybe with a vest? But that seemed too ... safe. (Although this combo does look pretty sharp.) I think I will revisit this again in the summer when it will look more airy without tights.
I've always shied away from wearing pink with olive, but with the cream accents, I thought it looked really fresh and chic. This picture made me think about pairing a pink V neck sweater with my olive skirt and maroon tights. But then I got stumped on the shoes. Black seemed wrong, and brown seemed ... weird. So it's back to the drawing board.
This was actually my favorite color combo that I came across - lime, cream and olive. Unfortunately I don't really have anything lime green that would be suitable with this skirt. So what am I going to do? Well, check back Monday to find out - I'm not really sure myself right now.
