Today’s prompt was “With Olives Please”. If I was one of those cool, edgy girls, I probably would have an military drab jacket in my closet that would have been perfect for such an occasion. I’m not one of those girls.
Instead, I had this floral maxi (same effect, right?) with some olive-green leaves on it, and one of my favorite pairs of shoes (that I’ve had for so long, they really are quite worn out/hard to walk in now, but I can’t bring myself to part with them).
Yes, technically, this is a summer dress, but I believe in the right to bare arms as long as the weather (and the occasion, Mrs. Obama) support it, and florals have become a year round print these days. Add in a black base to keep the pattern from being too Easter-y, and you can definitely make a dress like this work well into an Indian summer (that’s probably not a politically correct term, is it? Alternatives?)
Do you have much olive in your wardrobe? What would you have worn for this prompt? If not the color, maybe a graphic tee with a martini on it? I could totally see that being a thing.
