Quote of the day: “Uncertainty will always be part of the taking charge process.” Harold S. Geneen

Olive green is a great color—it can be styled like a neutral since it’s more muted! When I went through our closets, I found different items in this green for this post series. I got to wear pants in the color of choice, Nancy had a jacket and mom wore her dress that she made many years ago! And since this is usually a festive week for most of us, I started the pairing off with the holiday colors! Sometimes, I don’t put these colors together during other times of the year, just because they can look too Christmasy…but then again, who cares? and olive green is different than the bright Christmas green we usually see marketed.

    Olive and red superb. LOVE all 3 outfits. MUST (and will) now get red jeans, a camouflage blouse and a red shrug. You give me such great ideas. (Charlotte’s jewelry collection is stunning – remember to include when you curate the museum showing of her wardrobe.)

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I do think red jeans are a must have lately! And I distinctly remember having the thought that I could never wear them! Isn’t that the silliest thing ever? I’m so glad I found blogging and have gotten over most of my preconceived notions about clothes and style!!
      Mom’s jewelry is quite extensive, Kathleen! She always says she’s collected it over the years and never gets rid of anything (and I can attest to that!!)

  • Nancy’s Camouflage shirt is VERY cool…and looks great with her red trousers.
    Red and green is a great combination…and not even a touch of the potential “elf” or “Christmas tree” that can happen (especially at this time of year!! :oD)
    Great style, Jodie!
    P.S…Loving your cute shoes.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s always what I think about with this color combo! But then again looking like Will Ferrell might be a good thing?

  • You guys have the best accessories! Love this color combination. I’m glad you took a close up of Nancy’s jacket because it doesn’t look camouflage from a distance. I need to get another pair of red pants!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It is funny, how only 3-4 years ago I thought I’d never wear red pants!! I bet you can find some more thrifting!!!

  • Love all these combos – so cheerful and bright. The olive looks great with the red!
    And your sheep pin is adorable, Jodie.
