Can you sense a pattern in my posts lately? (here, here, here, oh and here, to mention just a few)  Yes, I'm a bit obsessed with olive.  It's all part of my larger obsession with neutrals.  But, I am reveling in the availability of great items in one of my favorite neutrals.  So, I'm stocking up while I can, a tee here, a pair of pants there, a jacket...  Some people hoard food, I apparently hoard clothing in colors I'm worried will not be widely sold at some future date.  Just wait till I sense that only high-waisted jeans may be available someday.  No need to look for me, I will be madly scooping up a lifetime's supply of mid-rise jeans.  As a short person who's especially short-waisted, I spent the 80's vainly looking somewhere - anywhere -  for a pair of pants that didn't give me a droopy crotch and a waistband near my armpits.  Not an enjoyable decade for me, let me tell you.

Anyway, enough about my 80s pant drama (it was real, but I will spare you).  This was an outfit that quite simply, I really liked.  It felt put-together without being too matchy (like maybe I'm glad I haven't found my perfect pair of cognac flats yet, that could have been too much?), and had the added benefit of being very comfortable.  I plan to wear and repeat quite often.  Then slightly rework, wear and repeat.  Can't blame a girl for knowing what she likes!
