Happy Friday! For some of you the end of the week is finally here but for me being a teacher I am still on summer vacation. Although I am getting a week closer to being back in school I chose not to think those kind of thoughts. Ignorance is bliss, right? On another note the look for this Friday is khaki and white. I don’t think I truly understood the difference between khaki and olive until a purchased this shirt. Khaki has been a term that has been floating around for a few seasons now about a color that some people would’ve considered to be olive, including myself. But I have finally figured it out. I know, I know a little late for some but here it is.
Khaki (green) is a color between khaki (tan) and olive. It can be used as a neutral just as olive and khaki can be used as neutrals too. Personally, I used to save olive for fall and winter, and then wear khaki in spring and summer. However, I believe that you can wear both of these shades any time of the year and they look great. Especially with white.
I loved pairing this khaki shirt with distressed white denim. In summer white can be used as a base color to give any other color you’re wearing the push it needs to stand out in an outfit. I wore a nude belt and heels as the accent color for this look. I personally think the combination of these colors together is so pretty. Speaking of pretty, how beautiful are those Tardiva Hydrangea in the background?!
