Last week in Asheville but the month’s stay was amazing as we needed break from the day-to-day. It was a working vacation, but we did have a lot of fun!. I will be sharing more photos on my IG feed. My parents, my sister and niece came to visit and we all walked around Biltmore Village, looked at shops, went into bakeries where the eclairs look like mountains, and the cookies were the size of my niece’s face! I had to get a cookie, and I could then say, I only ate “one cookie ” today! We then enjoyed a great dinner at a place called the Corner kitchen, with great wine, company and delicious food.
I wanted to share with you a look that creates a great color combination. The jeans from Fabrizio Gianni are the denim knit, super soft, olive denim which you have seen on me in INK HERE Being in the mountains, I have seen a fair amount of countryside as well, both fields and barns, gorgeous landscapes. So, with this Zara blouse, with its print of growing grass and blooming flowers, I felt I needed to show these olive jeans and blouse with a garden background. Seemed fitting! The added blush jacket with the olive appealed to me, as I consider olive a neutral, and the pairing looked feminine. Think of colors you may not always pair together, and give it a try!
So, have I mentioned how much I love these jeans? Great to transition as well as we enter into fall, This is more of a spring/summer look but with some changes, these great olive slim denim knit jeans will take you into fall. I think at this point, every year, I actually get pretty anxious for the fall season and I start looking at boots, fall skirts, and jeans.
This look says spring and summer to me, as the top looks like spring with the grass and blooming flowers. Here are some tips on how to transition the olive slim denim knit jeans into Fall:
- Olive denim knit jeans with a rich color sweater paring. Burgundy , Marsala are still strong colors this year.
- Wear a tunic add some bold accessories, perhaps a unique necklace ( when in Asheville there are many artisans) and I thought a metal/copper necklace would work perfect and give it a contemporary look. If you wear a tunic with these slim knit jeans, add a heel or wedge bootie as to not make one look shorter by cutting of your proportions.
- Wear the olive denim knit jeans with a textured fitted jacket. Plums are also coming in big this season! An amazing fitted leather jacket in colors that are popping up are: wine, pine green, browns and of course your staple black.
- Boot season ! For fall and winter, wear a trendy OTK boot or knee-high boot in a rich brown, grey, any color ( as olive is a neutral) and perhaps a tweed jacket . These jeans are slim and one can tuck them into boots.
