WIW: olive, white, denim... upside down

Based on this ensemble, I decided to wear olive and denim together.  It turns out that I like the combination - never mind that the skirt is rumpled.  (Hmm... may have to change that before venturing out this evening).

#1 is how I'm wearing it (birks rather than espadrilles, no topper for a warmish day - mid-90s, F)

#2 is more literal to the ensemble, but the parts don't actually work well here, I see.  (Changed to espadrilles, added a while leather jacket, and tucked the top).

This skirt is new to me - filling the "casual skirt" hole.  I'm thinking that even with it ironed, it might not be flattering enough to really earn a spot in my wardrobe.  What do you think?

    I think your hair is lovely colour, and the skirt is nice lenght on you. I love olive, it's part of my own wardrobe colour scheme, so I like the colours of your outfit too.

    How does the skirt look from the back? That's at least as important to consider as the front view.

    In theory I like the skirt, but maybe something about the proportions is off? 

    I like that you turned the inspiration shot upside down. :)

    I like the skirt - looks comfy and casual.  Maybe try with a slightly more fitted top, like a T?

    The skirt seems to fit well, though I think I prefer seeing you in a bit more structured clothes.
    The colors work wonderful with your hair! :)

    I like the skirt. It looks cool and relaxed for a summer day. I like the color combination too, but I agree with MuseumGal that a more fitted top is worth a try.

    I agree #1 works best.  The top and skirt go really well together.  Birks are good here but I think the espadrilles are cute too.
