monday (challenged: olive print skirt)

merona olive print skirt {temporarily swapped}   converse blouse {thrifted new}
old navy cardigan   target belt & necklace   simply vera tights   unlisted heels {thrifted}

this week my friend whitney from between the lines and i will be participating in a challenge to style some of each other's clothes that we get stuck wearing the same way over & over.  this is one of her skirts that i have been an admirer of each time i see her wear it.  my subliminal messages must have gotten through to her because she sent it my way for our challenge.  of course, once i got it, i wasn't sure how i would style it.  i didn't want to recreate an exact replica of one of whitney's outfits, but i didn't want to play it too safe either.  

i love how whitney paired this skirt with colors like lavender, sea foam green, and pinkish red.  i was still stuck, though.  whenever i am not sure what color to wear with an item, i always reference academichic's color tutorials.  all i needed was to see was the photo on the bottom of this tutorial highlighting analogous color combinations and i knew i could pull that off with this skirt.  so, i am adding navy & teal to the mix here.  i'm starting to think any color would look great with this skirt!  what do you all think?
