Today’s post features my third series of finds from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: an olive utility skirt outfit.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of olive green. As a neutral piece, it can go with almost any color and looks great by itself in a monochromatic outfit or piece.
I’ve done lots of posts featuring this shade of green, and here is a post with a round-up of ideas from last fall: Five Ways to Style Olive Green Outfits for Fall.
Whenever fall rolls around, olive green shows up in fall fashion trends. It’s a versatile color that almost anyone can wear. But if it’s a shade that doesn’t suit your skin and hair, you can always wear just a piece away from your face, like this olive utility skirt.
The Casual Olive Utility Skirt Outfit
This midi-length skirt has a utility-vibe that is very much trending this fall. The fabric is a cotton twill with a touch of stretch so you can wash and dry it at home.
You can see it’s a slim, straight cut with a front slit that allows for easy movement. Love it!
The casual midi skirt also comes in a very fun camo print, called “beige olive vintage camo.” Of all the pieces I’ve purchased from the #NSale, this skirt is still available in both the solid and the camo print. As happens every year, I’ve selected one of the few things that I really like but other ladies may not, so it’s still available. Yay! If you like denim skirts in a midi length, you will like this skirt. And since it’s made by the Nordstrom brand Caslon, you know it’s a quality piece that isn’t overly expensive.
The camo colorblock Baseball Tee is sold out, but I’ll bet you have a camo top of one sort or another. Any camo tee would look super cute with this utility skirt. Here are a few options:
Did I mention olive green goes with everything? (What?!! Only 39 times?!!) When I told my husband I was also going to style the olive utility skirt with my new gray sweater, he was skeptical. (Once again: men!! Lol!) You can see that it works really well here.
There is a VERY limited supply of this Halogen Cashmere Sweater, so if you like it, go for it soon! Or substitute your favorite gray sweater. I like vee-necks but a crew or turtleneck sweater would look equally good.
The Snakeskin Booties
Of course, the finishing touch that ties the outfit together is the booties! I looked at a couple snakeskin versions at the Nordstrom Sale and decided to try these. I’m not really a big fan of the western look for me but wanted to give these a shot. And I’m so glad I did! the snakeskin print and the western feel are two big trends, so it’s a good way to try a little bit of both!
The perforated top makes these snakeskin booties easy to slip on and they are so comfortable! They have a comfy padded footbed and a lower stacked heel. Perfect!
