Did I mention how much fun it is to travel in a car for 5 hours? I’ve been used to traveling by myself so much that I’ve forgotten the joy of traveling with other people. We only made it 9 miles before we had to turn around and go back to the house to see if we had forgotten something. Guess what? It was packed in one of the suitcases, so that was a false alarm.

The next time that we had to stop was about 20 miles down the road. We had to stop for a potty break, and since we were stopped, we decided to grab food also. Our 5-hour drive turned into a 6 1/2-hour drive, and we didn’t have a sit-down meal. Lol! I can hardly wait for our return trip home.

I posted a photo of me in this top last week, but I was only showing you the color of the lipstick. Today, I’m going to give you all of the information for the rest of the outfit. The Pima Slub-Knit V-Neck Tee is a great quality tee. I get asked a lot for my recommendations for quality t-shirts, and this one will be one that I recommend. The material is soft, it isn’t see-through, and I like the longer length. I ordered a large, but it is too big for me. I pulled the tail of the shirt through my belt loop to create a side tuck that takes up a lot of the extra bulk.

I’m carrying a Vince Camuto Corin Leather Hobo Handbag in an ivory color. I have several handbags by Vince Camuto, and they are all of nice quality. The only thing I would change about this bag is I would a longer shoulder strap. The things that I love about the bag are the leather, color, size, the printed strap, and the fact that it is on sale!

I’ve wanted to try Hudson Jeans for a while, so when I found the Nico Straight Leg Jeans in Titan on sale, I decided to give them a try. They feel great, and I like the style, but I ordered a size 29 and they are too tight through the waist. Even though the jeans are nice, I find them to be a little pricey, so I’ll link to some others that are at a better price point.

Now, for the unusual color combination, olive and orchid. Is this a color combination that you’ve worn before? Olive is a great neutral, but I usually think of it as a fall color. Orchid is a bright color, and it is one that I would consider a spring and summer color, although a darker orchid is a great fall color.

This olive cargo jacket is an old one, and I’m not even sure where I purchased it. Olive was a color that I would never wear before, but this past fall I decided that I LOVE this color. It is a great neutral and looks great with navy also. Here are some similar jackets at different price points, so there should be something for everyone.

You are probably tired of seeing me wearing the same jewelry. These accessories go with everything, and I wear them all of the time. I like trying new jewelry, but I’m also a creature of habit and will grab items that I know I love.

My Michael Kors Lillie Moccasin Loafers are a pair that I’ve had for years and I still love them. They are comfortable, and the vanilla color is great for spring and summer. These loafers go with everything including dresses and shorts. I’ve found that they run true to size, and I’m wearing a size 9.

  1. I bought a light summer jacket many years ago, same color as this one and it has a bright pink zipper. Love the jacket and still wear it.

  2. Jackie Sticha says:

    LOVE the tip about tucking the tee in the belt loop! I learned something today! I too recently lost weight and this is a great idea. I love this color combo but usually wear it more in the fall.

  3. ELIZABETH says:

    Cute outfit but I do think of it is as more fallish.

  4. I wear this combination and it’s one of my favorites!

  5. Definitely! I love olive with pinks, including your rose shade. It’s a winner!

  6. I would like to also see that! 🙂🌷🙂

  7. Kelly Renaud says:

    I personally love the combination. I’m a scarf person, so I might pair it with a print or floral scarf that ties the two colors together.

  8. This color combo is a hit!

  9. Hit! The colors really offset each other!
    The color of the top is so pretty and I love the neutral shoes and bag with it.

  10. I just ordered an olive-colored shirt dress from Chicos cuz I want to try your suggestion of wearing it as a neutral jacket or duster, probably with a bright color under it.

  11. Love the color combo. I haven’t thought of that on my own! Thanks for inspiration!

  12. I really like the look of this, at first I wasn’t sure but the more I look at it’s a winner.

  13. It’s a hit Enjoy Belize

  14. It is a Hit for me! I love the orchid and olive together. I also really like the color of the handbag and shoes for spring!

  15. I love the whole outfit I think it looks great together! Have fun on your trip!

  16. I think those colors are beautiful together! That orchid… eye pop!! 😀

  17. A HIT. I like the colors & causal vibe.

  18. LOVE this color combination – both look especially stunning on you as well! I love pairing unexpected things – it’s always a “risk” but what’s the worst that can happen, right?

  19. I like the color combo on you! Olive is not a color I can wear close to my face, but I might be able to wear it with a bright color like the orchid top. You’re so skinny, Tania! You’re such an inspiration! Have fun on your vacay!

  20. Deborah Thompson says:

    LOVE the color combo!!!! That olive colored jacket is awesome!

  21. I love this color combo. I’m often guilty of only using the “obvious” color pairings and forgetting how neat it is to go for the unexpected.

  22. Patti Smith says:

    Love this outfit.

  23. Christine says:

    I love this outfit! Olive green is a color I started wearing last spring. Thank you for including J.Jill in your ensemble. I shop there often when they offer percentages off items and sales.

  24. I love the pop of color with the olive jacket – especially for this time of year. I always seem to wear the same jewelry all the time too even though I have a lot!
    Safe travels!

  25. I love to wear olive with just about all colors. You look great in this outfit. I’m having trouble finding tshirts that are just above elbow sleeve length. The upper arms need to be covered on me. So if you find some please let us know where. I doubt I’m the only one looking for that length sleeve.

  26. Ginger Hiller says:

    While I like the outfit you created, I would not wear those colors together. However, I can’t wear olive near my face, so that has a lot to do with it. The card ride sounds like so much fun 🤣. Hopefully, the ride back home will be faster and stress free!

  27. The color combination is great! Love the entire outfit

  28. I love the T and the jacket separately but I still prefer olive with black, white or tomato red…and in the fall and winter. Great jeans! I’m hard to fit when it comes to jeans so I will pay the price if they fit great.😂. I rarely wear the same jewelry within a month.😆. I have WAY too much of it but love it.😉. My feet are too wide for ballet flats so I never buy them which is sad because those are cute.

  29. A pop of color is always good! I love it.

  30. I love wearing olive in the summer time! Once in a while, I’ll wear variations of camo in the summer to just “shake up” my look and I feel that camo is unexpected. Wearing “camo olive” serves the same purpose without all the pattern. Green and pink has always been a favorite color combo and I enjoy mixing feminine colors/accessories with masculine elements. I love this look!

  31. LOVE the color combo – but, I love color –

  32. Looks great on you. I like the idea of pulling the t shirt through the belt loop.

  33. Definitely a hit!! Love the combo and these colors look fantastic on you. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Mary Ruth Harden says:

    I like it especially since I have olive toned skin, not deep toned but nevertheless I usually shy away from greens and yellows . I did buy an olive cargo jacket but need a bright color to contrast against my yellowish skin tone. So I do like the vibrant orchid and gives me confidence to do something similar.

  35. Hi! I like the olive with the bright colored t shirt. Olive seems like a natural neutral color and I like to think of colors that appear together in nature. I have gorgeous peonies that look amazing on their dark green foiliage. The peonies are a match for your shirt. 😻

  36. I love this combo. Military jackets have become like jean jackets in that you can wear with just about anything casual. I have had one for years and consider it neutral. I love that orchid color on you. It really pops.

  37. Love the out fit and color combo, another great idea. My experience with J Jill slub t shirts is thumbs up. They feel good, not thin and wash and dry great if anyone was wondering.

  38. It is a hit! I like the color combo.

  39. Patricia Martens says:

    I’m loving this color combo! It looks great on you! You go girl!!!!

  40. Although the olive jacket is cute, it dampens the overall outfit. I like the shorter purse length. Hudson jeans aren’t worth the price, IMO
    I really enjoy your posts and have purchased several things!

  41. Hope you are having a great vacation. This color combo is a hit for me!! Love the colors together! And, thank you for a good t-shirt suggestion.

  42. Vicki Putney says:

    Love all the items but the combo is a miss

  43. Could you please show how you pulled your shirt through your belt loop? I tried but it doesn’t look like yours! PS: This look is a HIT!

  44. A hit with reservations…
    While I like the orchid for the pop of color it brings. I’m more comfortable with a white T to go with the jacket and jeans.

  45. It’s a hit for me; I’ve worn olive or khaki with red before and I think it looks great with your t-shirt…it really makes that gorgeous orchid shade pop!

  46. I love the pink/olive color combo and I do it often.

  47. Love the color combo and jacket.

  48. Olive & Orchid is a hit! I have worn that combo before & loved it!
