Weekly Whistle: 2 Vintage-Inspired Ways to Wear Army Green

IMG_2229

Ahh…vintage-inspired–my favorite! Who would have guessed that *wink*

At the mall the other day, I stumbled upon this army green beauty on the sale rack at Charming Charlie for 50% off. In love with the deal and vintage flare, I had to get it! But upon getting it home, I asked myself, what in the world am I going to do with a dark green dress this spring/summer?! 

Well, good thing I asked myself *wink* Although the solid frock is a little plain, it can easily be dressed up or down with the right accessories! Now, I think we need some tunes to get us in the mood for this fabulous outfit–HIT IT DJ! *wink*

Why I love it:

I love this little green dress because it is so versatile! Whether it be a night out on the town or lunch with friends, no matter the time of year, I can see this dress becoming one of my staple frocks! PLUS…I got it for a heck of a deal *wink*

VIP Quick Tip:

When wearing darker hues in the spring, it is important to add color with accessories. Slip on a colorful belt and fun pair of heels or opt for silver jewelry instead of gold because gold tends to be more fall-esque when worn with army green. Also, when dressing up army green for an evening event, layer black and sparkly/silver jewelry for an elegant yet season-friendly ensemble.

Hello, my fabulouses!  Today has been a super fun and adventurous day for the VIP as I had a photo shoot for the movie poster…afterwards, I got pampered at the Cos-Medi Center in Columbus, Mississippi with a fabulous facial! Special thanks to Hollie Blair Lampkin for always making my skin feel fresh and fabulous! :)

Phew! I am going to keep this outfit post short and sweet because I am in desperate need of a nap!

To transform yesterday’s look from the farmer’s market to a lovely brunch date with that campus hottie, simply toss off the jacket and wear the scarf as a shawl…TAH DAH! You look fabulous! *pushes Staples button* That was easy!

Hello, my fabulouses! For yesterday’s outfit, I took a cozy pair of pink cords and dressed them for the classroom. Today, I am dressing those same pretty pink cords for a dazzling date night!

To take cord trousers from campus to the movies or dinner, toss on a sporty chiffon sweatshirt and baby soft scarf for a fabulous look that is sure to catch the attention of your hot date *wink* For another date night look, simply toss off the scarf and slip a magnificent Mary Frances handbag on your arm–BAM! Two date night looks without a lot of effort or money.
