As we know, Camouflage Print was all the rage last season.
It is also known that it is not going anywhere as the sweltering heat of summer is phasing out, (in most parts of the country), and the cooler temps are taking over.
Vanessia over at Style4Curves featured her incorporation of the camo trend. Check out her blog here!
As some may know, I keep a mental shopping list of trendy items that I want to find on a dime.
I was in one of my new favorite places to shop minding my own business, when I spotted a pair of the store’s branded “modern-fit” trousers!
...In none other than camo print.
Skeptical about the fit on my voluptuous bottom half, I tried them on for kicks.
The fit was amazing!
The outfits I could construct with these pants instantly begin swimming around in my head!
Needless to say,
I bought them!
I bought them!
And while playing around with them and some pieces I had at home, I thought they went exceptionally well with my orange peplum top.
Hence, the look I went with for work today!
I would love to dawn a heel with these pants but I have to play by the rules and wear flats.
My metallic peep-toes were close enough to
- soften up the camo
- play nice with the contrast between the pop + print
- and still stay true to my style….
I would have LOVED to wear this shirt in all its sleeveless glory but that is also taboo on the job.
Thus, I covered it up with my denim jacket.
… And to give my favorite satchel a break, I grabbed this white carry-all with silver hardware!
Taking note of all the things I considered to make this look work, I think it deserves a salute.

PS.: This is my nail color for the week..(maybe two).... Random I know...But I was in Rue 21 and when I saw this blue color it made me smile! It also smells like a blue lollipop, a blue dum-dum to be exact! Always an added perk...that and my Chetah accent finger!
