Trying Out Red & OliveThe two outfits featured in today's post are both inspired by outfits featured in Instyle Magazine (one of my favorite magazines!). I first noticed the "Neutral-Know-How" color book in an issue back in April and liked how the color book showed different color schemes one may not think to pair together. I then saw it again when I came across Instyle's feature, "Inspired by Instyle" back in August. The girl they featured had camo pants with a red lace top and I loved it. The other outfit I came across with this color scheme came from Instyle's October 2012's "28 Days of Amazing Outfits" article. The colors looked good together in that look as well, so I decided I would give olive and red a try. Though I've seen red and green together (mostly around Christmas), I've never thought to put it together. I normally wear these camo leggings with beiges and olives, and the safari jacket was sitting in a bin in my house waiting to be dropped off at the Goodwill!! I wasn't feeling bold enough to wear a red top, so I opted for red accessories-a bag and earrings (which you may not be able to see in my pic). Overall, I would say I like these colors together.
