It’s so hard to believe that we just had our very last summer weekend of 2018! In less than a week, it will be officially fall… even though it feels far from that in Palm Springs. It is still well over 100 degrees during the day, but I’m thankful that we at least get cooler mornings and nights now. As I continue to transition my wardrobe for the new season, I’ve been adding a lot of olive green pieces. It’s such a staple color to wear during the cooler months! If you adore all things olive like me, you’ll LOVE my favorite picks in this shade for autumn 🙂
For me, dresses aren’t just worn in summer – especially since it never really gets that cold here. On chillier days, I love layering dresses with leggings, boots, a cozy jacket, and maybe a scarf. In particular, I’m really digging military shirt dresses lately because they exude a bit of edge all the while maintaining femme vibes. I’ve said this before – I’ll seize any opportunity to not wear jeans or pants because they’re not always comfortable. Besides, dresses (especially maxis!) are just easier to throw on! Who’s with me?
I am a sucker for military jackets! Aside from that, I also love olive green cardigans, wool coats, and chunky knit sweaters. I can’t wait for it to cool down more so that I can bust out my outerwear pieces on the regular! The great thing about olive is that it’s neutral enough to wear with just about anything, but still adds a splash of color to an outfit that isn’t just your typical black, white, tan, or grey.
Living in Palm Springs, I know that it’s a true luxury to be able to wear dresses year-round. My friends in the East Coast and other parts of the world that have to endure harsh cold climates constantly remind me of this great perk of living in California (haha)! While jeans are not on the top of my list, I do love a good pair of distressed jeans – and one in olive couldn’t hurt. Olive jeans go really well with simple white tees and layer well with cardigans, sweaters, boots, sneakers, you name it!
In fall, I generally enjoy wearing booties with a bit of heel and over-the-knee boots. For a long day out exploring, I always make sure my feet are comfortable in a well-fitted pair of sneakers with ample support. My wardrobe is still missing a nice pair of olive green sneakers at the moment, and it’s certainly time to change that. I know that we’ll be out exploring a whole lot more once it cools down because we’ve been stuck at home for months now due to the excruciating heat.
Autumn is a great time to accessorize. While I can appreciate nice jewelry once in a while, I usually opt for other accessories on a day-to-day basis. When it’s cooler out, my go-to’s are hats and scarves. Both are so wearable, don’t feel too heavy on the body, and can really complete an outfit!

During autumn, I can’t get enough of olive. I remember when I first started dating my fiancé, he told me he didn’t like olive, and I said “oh well, because I’m wearing it anyways!” Haha! It suits my skin tone and my red hair color, and it’s just so pretty and versatile. It’s almost like a neutral!
LOL! Good for you for wearing whatever you like, whenever you want! I don’t always listen to my boyfriend either when he says he doesn’t like something so I’m with you. Olive does go beautifully with your skin tone and gorgeous hair! xx
I love that handbag. It is absolutely gorgeous.
Thank you Nailil xx
I’m always partial to Olive because it accents my eyes but I’m SO excited to see that it’s everywhere this season! Love your picks!
