Ensemble: Utility Pretty

This ensemble was inspired by a wild card birthday present from Greg: a pair of Vince Zip Ankle Utility Pants in dark olive.

I instantly loved them because they’re very tailored, have fun zippers on the ankles, and the olive is more brown than green. The length is perfect, hitting me an inch above the ankle bone.
