I've been slowly accumulating olive coloured items over the summer in order to have a mix and match olive capsule. I had a lightbulb moment when Angie pointed out that my Most Valuable Players in my MVP's of summer post were prints! In response, I searched for prints featuring olive, instead of just focusing on solids. This week I added a cream and olive top, and ordered a shirt dress in an olive based paisley. I wore the olive topper for the second time this week for a casual night out with DH. When we got home, the package with the dress had been delivered.

#1 olive and cream sleeveless top - Jones of New York
Black wool jacket - Loft (thrifted)
Olive chinos - Dockers
Leopard flats - Town Shoes

#2, 3, 4, 5 - 'grey asparagus paisley' shirt dress (have you ever read a more revolting colour description?) - Lands' End styled with self tie belt and white loafers (Nine West) and without belt and olive sneakers (Joseph Siebal) - sorry about poor pm lighting
#6 close up of paisley
#7 product monograph
#8 and #9 olive capsule thus far - all added this year, with the exception of the black T-shirt (summer 2018)

Not shown olive shorts (summer 2018) and an olive scarf (ancient). I'm hoping to add a sweater and or turtleneck, and possibly a winter coat with co-ordinating cold weather accessories that continue the olive colour scheme.

Suggestions on different ways to style the shirt dress are welcomed, as are links to any interesting olive coloured items you might have come across. As always, thanks for looking.
