One Piece, Many Ways


I am so excited to do another One Piece, Many Ways post! Don't you just love them?! It is wonderful seeing different ways people are able to style a piece and I get so much inspiration. I decided to use my olive corduroy pants because they are a neutral color that a lot of people don't use much, but they really go with a lot. I grabbed them on clearance at Old Navy this past winter for $8 (along with 2 other pairs)!
You can see my last One Piece, Many Ways post here.
 Sweater- Old Navy; Shirt- Marshalls; Boots- DSW; Bracelets- gifts; Earrings- Forever 21; Ring- Charming Charlie

I love a tunic sweater, skinny pants, and boots throughout the fall and winter. It's perfect for those days you eat one too many apple cider doughnuts or pieces or apple pie. 

 Sweater- American Eagle (old); Boots- Esprit (old); Tank- Kohls; Necklace, earrings, and ring- gifts

I like to wear lighter colored tops or ones with bright colors because olive can be a little drab if you pair it with a dark color (e.g. black, brown). 

 Shirt- Gap, Shoes and belt- Dunnes (Irish chain); Watch- Michael Kors, Necklace- Lia Sophia; Bracelets- gifts

This is a more casual outfit. I could wear this to work, or on a weekend. That is what I love about these pants. They can be casual or you can dress them up a bit. They are just as comfortable as my jeans, but it looks like I put more thought into the outfit (even though I definitely didn't)!

 Blazer- Gap; Button up- JCP; Belt- eBay; Boots- Etienne Aigner via Shoes.com; Watch- Michael Kors; Earrings- New York & Company; Ring- gift

This might be my favorite outfit. I love all the layers and textures in the outfit and pop of color with the belt. I just need a horse so I can go riding now.

Shirt- gift; Shoes- Target; Necklace- Penney's (Irish store); Earrings- Francesca's Collections; Bracelets and ring- gifts; Watch- Michael Kors

I love how femininity of the lace stands out against the green of the pants. 

Do you have olive green pants? What do you wear them with?

  13. Haha! It's so funny, I would say you are the brave one with your bright colors and pattern mixing. I don't like olive by my face because I think it washes me out, but olive pants are great!

  20. Thank you Andrea! I've actually found my olive pants to be more versatile than my grey ones. I think I just like how the olive looks next to colors more than grey.

  25. Laura, I love this post! So many great looks! I agree, my favorite one is the one with the polka dot blouse and blazer. I have a pair of olive skinny pants that I love, but they don't fit me right now :( As soon as I can fit into them, I have big plans for the :)
