How to fall into fall with earth tones

I don’t always like fall colors in clothing, but don’t mind earth tones. The colors I don’t like are usually the ones that start looking like a muddy version of the original color. I usually refer to these as baby poop yellow or baby puke orange. Or baby dukey green. Bleh. I do like olive green, though, and there is a difference between olive green and a more putrid version of the color. Ha.

Gold button up shirt, old; olive green suede leggings, TJ Maxx; colorblock purse, gifted to me; cat ear sunglasses, Betsey Johnson, old, Marshall’s; dusty rose bling tennis shoes, Ross.

The key is picking out colors that don’t look too much like something the cat dragged in. Here, I paired a light shimmery gold top with olive green faux suede pants and a brown puffer vest and added a few pops of color with the purse and dusty rose tennis shoes, complete with bling on the toes.

Mix in some fall leaves for extra fun! Whoohoo!

As always, thank you for stopping by and happy fall.

Bejeweled off-shoulder knit top – #fashionfriday

This purple bejeweled top was definitely calling my name when I went to scour Kohl’s clearance racks to find something to use my $10 off savings coupon and 20% off discount. Coming in at just under $10, I had to find something else to go with it so I could use my whole $10 savings card. I found these soft olive green skinny jeans on sale for $10 as well. Armed with my savings card and discount that I pulled up from my e-mails on my phone, I headed to the registers. The grand total for this outfit was $8.16 – a savings of $89.84. Oh how I love a good deal!

The top is made out of smooth, shiny t-shirt material with shoulder cut-outs lined with big diamond-like jewels. How fun is that? On a side note, I wore this with my hair down, and kept having my hair get stuck in the enormous shoulder bling. But they are still a nice touch.

The jeans are so soft. They feel almost flannel like, they are so soft! My cats hair decided it really liked this material, so if you notice tufts of cats hair sticking to them, just know, no cats were harmed in the wearing of my fashionably furry pants. My cats just want me to remember them everywhere I go. In fact, sometimes if I lay my outfit out somewhere they can get to it before wearing it, they really like to lay down right on top of it. They just want their kitty mama to wear a nice soft kitty hair outfit – just like them – without having to turn into Cruella De Ville to get it.
