WIW: olive twinset & white jeans

Here's my version of Angie's Olive, Orange & White ensemble, worn for a day off:
White straight-leg jeans (Lucky, Sweet Jean); olive short-sleeved tee and 3/4-sleeved cardigan (Halogen); olive belt (Fossil); orange platform sandals (Kork-Ease); gold and silver necklace (Madewell); brass and silver earrings (Marjorie Baer); gray backpack bag (Rebecca Minkoff). For bonus points, I painted my toenails dark olive.

I was surprised how much I like the dark olive with white. Thanks to Angie for the suggestion!

I welcome any comments and suggestions; thanks for looking!

    This is a fabulous version of the olive/orange/white ensemble. The white jeans look sharp with the olive and dash of orange.

    Nice rendition! Love the earrings and necklace with it too! And yay for your bonus points!

  • Tania replied 4 years ago

    Totally fab, especially with the color pop that the orange provides.

  • Nebraskim replied 4 years ago

    I love this. So simple. So stunning. The orange shoes are like that little lemon twist that takes the cocktail up a notch.

  • Windchime replied 4 years ago

    Your orange sandals make this outfit so fun! Great interpretation of the ensemble!

    I also award you full credit for your olive toenails. :)

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    Wow. This classic twinset looks totally hip in this outfit because of the tucked under layer, the shoes, white jeans and backpack. VERY nicely down, you gorgeous creature. 

  • E replied 4 years ago

    Wow! The outfit seems to reflect & flatter you just perfectly. And then the orange shoes feel like a wink at the end. What a great look!

    Fab - very fab!!  The olive really works with the white jeans and neutral belt.  

    I realized when I was looking at the outfit that one of the things that appeals to me about many of your outfits is the fit of your clothing.  The clothes are neither loose not fitted.  You seem to always find that perfect in between.

    Thanks everyone!
    What a nice compliment, Cheryle!

    You are STUNNING in this outfit, FC. This is my favourite outfit on you in a while.....olive is beautiful on you! Those jeans fit you so so well....you look leggy and pretty and just so-amazing. Love the lil orange touch and your backpack is darn cute!

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    This is wonderful on you! The olive green is incredibly flattering, and it really makes the white pop. The shoes add just the right fun touch. Brava!! 

  • kkards replied 4 years ago

    I agree with Cheryle's comment about the fit of your clothes.  It really does make a huge difference and sets you apart from the rest of the crowd.  This is such a perfect outfit - and you look fantastic in this darker olive.  Nicely done !

  • jackiec replied 4 years ago

    Perfect interpretation of the ensemble! Yes, Cheryle make a good point about fit. You've mastered it.

    And I love the olive and crisp white on you. Sharp.

  • Dee replied 4 years ago

    This is a fantastic interpretation. Love the subtle pop from the orange shoes and that backpack is fab!

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate the votes of confidence on the "twinset." I do love my cardigans. And your responses to this fairly simple outfit remind me that often less is more!

  • Style Fan replied 4 years ago

    I love this outfit on you.  The olive is very flattering to your skin.  I agree with others about the fit of your clothing.  I am a lover of cardigans too.  Love the polish on your toes.  :)

    This is truly fab! I love the olive trio of belt, top and cardi, and the pop of orange in the shoes. A perfectly crisp late summer look. Well crafted outfit perfection, right down to the jewellery choices. I hope you repeat this one often, it looks brilliant on you.
