Olive Green is My Jam


Gold Statement Earrings/WrapBracelet

And that's it. That's it for normal pics in this outfit. Obviously, I had a little too much fun at the cupcake shop. For those of you who are new to my blog you can read the start of my cupcake adventures here. For the rest of you fabulous readers, you're either over it or ready to see another flavor variety. ;)

However before I chat about sweets, let's chat about my latest accessory addition: the olive green scarf!  While shopping for a dress to take on our cruise (my first cruise ever is coming up!), the stylish at White House Black Market brought me this scarf to add to my dressing room. I think she knew once I wrapped this beauty around my neck there would be no going back. She was correct.  I fell in the with the complimenting color and light material. Olive green is my jam! I need more items to wear around my face that are olive green! I bet this color compliments most skin tones. Here's a look at the dress I found! It's on sale of course. :)



Now back to this outfit...this outfit is the perfect example of giving new life to older shirts/pants with  updated accessories. This top was a cast off and it's missing a button. "Ah, just throw a scarf on over it!" That is not my habit, but until I find a white button I like to replace it this one will have to do.

I purchased the pants some time ago at LOFT, but I'll post a couple of alternatives below.

***Cupcake Adventures***


I selected this red velvet and chocolate cupcake for a friend that was moving to Florida. She graduated from UGA, so this just made sense. As I made my way over to her house, the Instagram stories were already underway, documenting my short travels. I pulled into her driveway and look around. Why did it feel like a ghost town? I texted.

Me: "Hey girl. Where are you?"
Friend: "On the road."
Me: "On the road to where? Florida??"
Friend: "Yes. We decided to get on the road early for the kid's sake." (They have a 2 year old and a set of 6 month old twins.)
Me: I texted one of the video clips of her cupcake. 
Friend: "I guess you will have to eat that one."
Me: "In a house of 4 boys, I'm sure I can find a taker." LOL

This is when the element of surprise fails. My first cupcake delivery fail! It's all a part of this adventure I'm on. There's been many and I look forward to more to come. 

Well, I must know my reader friends. Is olive green your jam right now?? Until next time! :)

  3. Olive green is definitely your jam because it looks amazing on you! But beware the stylists at WHBM - they're magicians! I know - they put a spell on me every time I walk in there and I'm powerless under it's force! Haha! Usually I am a thrift shop girl, but White House is my retail weakness, to be sure! So, sorry your cupcake mission failed, but the Lord must have meant that cupcake for you! Sometimes WE'RE the ones who need a little sweetness in our lives!

    1. Oh that is so funny that you mention the magicians as WHBM. How right you are! Before I knew I walked up to the register with an armload of purchase, most of which had to go back - today in fact. lol. And thank you for your sweet encouragement. God is so good to us!

  8. It's a shame you didn't get to give a cupcake farewell to your friend, but that looks delicious and I'm sure you enjoyed eating it! :)

    I like your outfit too - I need more block colours scarves like this to add to outfits that already have printed pieces in them. I have a lot of printed scarves and very few plain ones!

    Hope you have had a lovely weekend :)

    1. Thank you. I realized the same thing about the scarf situation...I needed more block colors. :) And you're right about the cupcake...though it wasn't me that ate it. It was my 15 year old son. It didn't last long at all! Thank you for taking time to visit!!
