Camo Chic

Happy hump day friends! I’m finally back to a fashion post. I haven’t been purchasing many pieces these days, but I’ve ordered several things lately and will hopefully have some good stuff to share. If you’d have told me 5 years ago that I’d ever wear a pair of camo pants, I’d have probably looked you square in the eye and said, “you’re crazy”. Now here I am all decked out in them and loving them. Can you see me? Hahaha!

The truth is that camo is no longer just relegated to our military or hunters, but it’s a main stream print in fashion. Do you need to be brave to wear camo? I’m going to say yes. Yes, you do need to be a little brave, but once you try it, I’m willing to bet you’ll like it.

Did you know the Loft Outlet is now online? I have one a mere 3 miles from my home and so I cruise through it on a pretty regular basis. More times than not I end up coming out empty-handed. To be quite honest, I think the outlet stuff all seems to be the same year after year and season after season, but from time to time I’ll stumble on a piece that captures my heart and earns a place in my closet. This adorable bell sleeve tee is a prime example. As soon as I saw the olive rick rack on the sleeves, I knew I’d be pairing it with my camo pants.

This is not the first time I’ve shared my camo pants with you. I styled them earlier this summer with a sweet eyelet top here. I think adding a something with a feminine flair helps to make camo a little more “girlie” and a little less “let’s go out and hunt us some deer”.


STYLE TIP: I don’t like a straight bottom t-shirt. To achieve a knotted effect or effortless half-tuck, I just pull a little material to the inside at the hem off to the side, and put a little clear elastic pony tail holder or small rubber band on it. Voila! A tee that looks like you bought it that way.

Camo now comes in all shapes and sizes. I think it’s best to add just one piece at a time, but you can add a lot and go full tilt to get your inner hunter on. They skies the limit. Have you tried it yet? I’ve rounded up some great pieces to tempt you with below.


I’m joining the girls at The Blended Blog for the second time this week.

    Well done my friend, no hiding it – you look fab in camo! Ha, did you crack up ? I did. Love the tip about the clear pony holder to keep your tee knotted, I should try that because the only times I have attempted tying up a hem, it didn’t stay and I ended up all wrinkled! Ugh! I share your feelings about Loft Outlet, they opened one by us and I have yet to buy anything (from them, lol)!

      HAHAHA! Great pun! You and I are just a couple of comedians. I ran through Loft outlet this weekend, but stuff was only 40% off. HA! I came out and told Kent I only do 50%. LOL!!!

    I just love this look on you! I remember I had camo silky pants in highschool (lol, like, what was I thinking?!) These days my fashion is much more neutral, but I love the fact that you went bold and dressed it up with a crisp white blouse!

      Thanks sweet Melissa!! I tend to be neutral myself, but every so often I take a hard left and add a bold print. XOXO

    Yep, I have those same lil elastic pony tail holders. Not a straight hem fan either but I am a BIG FAN of how adorable you look in your Camo!! xo

      Woohoo for elastic pony tail holders. Thanks sweet friend! XO

    Camo is so in right now but regardless of it trending heavily lately I have been a fan of this prints for quite some time. It’s such a nice alternative to the leopard print! I love your bell sleeve top and how you created the knotted look. It really looked like it was created to be this way. Nicely done! I hope you are having a great week so far!

      Thanks so much Maureen. I totally agree about camo. I think it and leopard are birds of a feather. XOXO

    I’ve never had very good look with Loft Outlet, either, but I did see where they are online now. We are on a mission to find Alise a camo mini skirt to wear to the Taylor Swift concert in a few weeks!

    • September 17, 2018 / 9:06 am

      That will be so cute on her. Good luck!!! Fingers crossed!

    Love your take on the camo with a crisp white flouncy top and sandals. As I’ve told the other two in the triad, I did my camo stint in the 70s and at my age I think it’s best kept there! But you youngsters look super in camo. Err, come to think of it, in my Wednesday post I kick of with a blouse that’s not camo per se, but you’ll be hard pressed to find me amongst the foliage!
    Hugs my lovely and have a sooper dooper Thursday, x.

      Oh sweet Mary, you could easily do camo again. You’re so cute!!!

  7. September 13, 2018 / 12:42 pm

    Cute look. I like the warm browns of your bag and sandals. I’ll have to remember to buy clear pony holders–I keep seeing this done, but haven’t used this idea, yet.

      Thanks Kim! You should definitely give the ponytail trick a try. XO

    That top is really cute! I can totally see why it had to come home with you. I love white tops (well when my baby isn’t learning to feed herself-then white tops become targets, haha!), especially when you add some interesting details on them like yours!

    • September 17, 2018 / 9:03 am

      Thanks Laura! I’m actually lacking in the white tops department and need to add a few more. Adding new foods to a babies diet is no joke. LOL

    I had a pair of camo pants a few years back and I loved them! These look precious on you. Such a fun pattern to play around with and I feel like it almost acts like a neutral.

    • September 17, 2018 / 9:02 am

      I totally agree. I think camo is in the same camp as leopard. Love them both!

    I’m so jumping the camo bandwagon this fall. Such a chic street classic. Super versatile too.
