WIW: blah

I woke up with the idea that I wanted to pair robin's egg blue with olive today.  

I failed.  

"Robin's egg blue" morphed into my teal snake-print slouchy skinnies, and the olive got hidden under a cream sweater in an attempt to look less wintry while adding warmth.  I feel comfortable enough to go out in this, but it feels just a tad boring.  I don't think it'll take me too long to be embracing color full-on in public :)

Suggestions?  How to punch this combo up?

ETA: version 2  - the olive field jacket and a white shirt underneath to bookend the shoes - better?

    I like it! How about a patterned belt with the semi tuck?

    I love the shoes with this outfit!  I'm not sure how to punch it up since I quite like it how it is.

    What about trying these skinnies with a simple gray or neutral V-neck and add either a bright red accessory (bracelet maybe?) or a white accessory to bookend the oxfords?

    I think it looks fine -- I think a white belt + swapping out the cream sweater for your olive field jacket would be fun.

    Thanks all - I definitely need to find or make a white belt....

    Ceit - I considered that olive jacket, and thought it was too cold this morning.  But the sun is out now, and it may come out this afternoon :)

    After a naptime shower, I changed to the field jacket - still no white belt though.  :)  Is it better this way?

    The shoes are great! I think a sassy buttondown collar peeking out in #1 would be fun. I really like update in #2, adding a belt (over the jacket) would be fun here too!

    Hard to look boring with those shoes!
