Olive Top and Denim Cutoffs + WW Link Up


I'm beginning to think that olive green is my new favorite color.  Every piece of clothing that I want to add to my closet seems to be that muddy shade of green, including most of my picks from the Nordstrom sale.  Olive is such a pretty shade to wear, especially in the fall, and I love how it pairs perfectly with all colors from black, to browns, and even navy.  This olive blouse is from Forever 21, and I'm obsessed.  I love the blousy fit, roll-tab sleeves, and the price.  It is under $16, and also available in blush, my other favorite color.  I paired it with my denim cutoffs, and finished my outfit with navy booties for a cool summer look.

On a more personal and sad note, I got the news Wednesday night that my grandmother had passed away.  Although I knew this day was arriving soon, as she had Alzheimer's, it's still hard to accept that fact that she is no longer with us.  She hadn't been herself for a while, so I'm happy that she is finally at peace and reunited with my grandfather.  I will be in Vermont this weekend for her funeral, and spending time with my family.  Please excuse my absence from the blog for the next couple of days while I mourn her loss, and celebrate the amazing life that she had.

  3. Rachel, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I find the best way to keep memories alive of our loved ones that have passed is to always share their stories. Keeping you in my thoughts...

    And this outfit looks amazing. I also love olive green. And speaking of that blouse that also comes in blush....blush with olive green would look fabulous together!

    So sorry for the loss of your grandmother. I recently lost mine a few months ago to Alzheimer's as well. It's so hard to watch them suffer and such a terrible disease but at least she's at peace now. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
