Tuesday Temptations: Olive

Tuesday Temptations: Olive green

One || Two || Three || Four || Five || Six || Seven || Eight || Nine

As a redhead with fair skin, you'd think I'd have a closet full of the color that's supposed to be one of the most flattering shades on me. Instead, I'm seriously lacking in the olive green department. And not because I don't love it, but because I almost always opt for black, gray, white or tan over color. Every. Single. Time. Though you could totally argue this is kind of a neutral shade, right? It's definitely versatile and plays well with basically every other color I just mentioned, which my wardrobe is full of.

Anyway, after debating these two dresses (here and here) last Friday, I felt it was time to give this earthy hue the attention it deserves. It doesn't hurt that it's one of this fall's "it" colors! My favorite pieces are the jumpsuit, the flowy blouse and those satin shorts, which I think would look amazing with a lightweight open knit sweater and sandals on a cool summer night!

Happy Friday + Link love

 
-H&M is having an awesome sale right now that I stayed up way too late shopping the other night. From my iPad. In bed. (I love you, 2015.) Anyway, the prices are ridiculously low and I got a ton of cute stuff basically for free. I'm thinking of going back for round two and getting this, this and these.

-My favorite white jeans come in regular denim. There's also a version sans rips in the knees, if that's your thing.

-Everyone is talking about this super awkward Cara Delevingne interview. Yes, the hosts were terri-bad, but am I the only one who thinks she seemed annoyed before it even began?
 
-I love buying summery pieces in fall colors so that I can easily transition them into the next season. And right now I'm digging all things olive green and debating either this romper or this dress. Both are off the shoulder. Duh.

-Well now I have absolutely no idea what to wear to the gym after reading this article.

-Remember this dining room table? Well, I splurged. But I got these chairs for like, $50 a piece, so it totally evens out, right? Make sure to follow me on Snapchat (username: allycog) for a peek into our home as it comes together!

-This should come in handy when cleaning out your closet next time -- 11 pieces that are officially out of style.

-These faux leather moto leggings, you guys. Dead.

-This is the last weekend to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! You can see some of my picks here and here.

Ok, so I know it's been like 86 years since I've done an outfit post. I'm not proud of it, but sometimes life -- and moving -- happens. But now that I've finally unpacked the last of my clothes (only took like 4 weeks, no big deal), we can get down to business again.

I'm still working on getting organized in addition to getting out of a little blog funk I've been in, but I have a lot I want to share with you guys -- including some before and after pictures of projects we'll be doing in the house, which is what's taking up most of my usually-reserved-for-outfit-planning time.

In the meantime, feel free to shoot me an e-mail, tweet me or whatever to let me know if there's something you want to specifically see as I get back into the swing of things!
