Latest Love: Military Green

This September, as the cooler weather started to set in and I began to retire my coral and pink nail polishes in lieu of dark colors, I noticed a personal obsession forming. See, fall usually brings out the blacks, grays, and eggplants that make up my wardrobe, but it was feeling a bit like we were going back to a redo of last year.  Luckily, inspiration stuck as a color kept flashing in my brain: military green!

Military Green Slouch

Most people gravitate towards a certain neutral for fall. Those of us with cooler toned skin may love to rock blacks and grays, while the warmer bunch may go after browns and camels. It’s great to know what works for you and stick with it, but it’s fun to bring in a few other staples to mix in. Army green is the perfect non-boring neutral. It goes with all skin tones, and matches wonderfully with both black and brown. Even if you’re not a fan of the military styling, opt for a blazer, sweater, or tights.

Vince Featherweight Utility Shirt, Essie Sew Psyched

In celebration of this new staple, I found a killer deal at Vince on this utility shirt (60% off!). I got in a large so it would be extra slouchy and long – perfect for belting – and Essie’s Sew Psyched which I am… so psyched to polish my nails with this week. This fall, you’ll find me in my greens with prep/rocker touches and black accents.


  1. Love, love, LOVE the military look but had no idea I could carry it through to my fingernails. Sew Psyched polish…yes, please!

  2. I’m stopping on the way home tonight to get that Essie color! LOVE!

  3. Also, what are your thoughts on wearing winter shorts to work in a more corporately-dressed place (I love the ones you show above)? Actually, any tips on that for Fall would be awesome! I’m so sick of baggy dress pants! Blah!

  4. I love your style! What a fun selection of items… My daughter’s birthday is coming up, I am thinking green, green and green polish to top it off! Thanks for the great tips!
