SAHMonday: Olive, Gray and Sneakers

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet!

Olive, Gray and Sneakers

This outfit formula is one of my oldies but goodies. I’ve been pairing up an olive cardigan with a gray tee and frayed hem jeans for a couple of years. The only new spin is the addition of a pair of sneakers.

You’ve heard me sing praises about this pair of super comfy jeans before, but they are still my most worn pair in my closet. They pair perfectly with sneakers, ankle boots, sandals, you name it!  And they’re as soft as pajamas.

My favorite olive cardigan is Mossimo from Target but they no longer sell it. They replaced it with their “A New Day” collection, and while they have some cute pieces, the quality just isn’t as good. I’ve linked up a similar cardigan but if you have one you love, please let me know in the comments.

SAHM Outfit Formula

Olive Cardigan + Gray Tee + Frayed Hem Jeans + Sneakers

Remember – you can try out this outfit formula using pieces from your closet. Be creative and substitute where you need to! Because I shop my closet a lot, sometimes my pieces are no longer available but I link up similar items. 

There’s something I really love about turquoise jewelry with olive and gray. Plus turquoise is one of the huge trends for spring.  I just added these gold turquoise triangle earrings and turquoise pendant necklace to the GYPO Collection last week. They’ve been the most popular pieces so far! I know gold isn’t for everyone, you can also get these earrings in silver here and necklace in silver here.

This pastel bracelet stack was also just added to the store.  My daughter Aubrey and I keep taking turns wearing it. I had to go hunt it down in her room for this outfit.

I got these New Balance sneakers for our upcoming spring break trip to Italy. I’ve been on the lookout for a casual street shoe for a long time and ordered this pair on a whim. They ended up being perfect!  It’s hard to tell from the pics but they are actually a light blue color.
