The camo skinnies have arrived!

I missed you all while I was vacationing in sunny (cold) Orlando, Florida ;-) 
Apparently I brought the cold with me. Anyhow, I have been trying to figure out how to make camo skinnies a bit more sophisticated -- and I think I found the right balance without losing the camo edge.  I am sure you ladies will tell me how I did. 

The peplum top is a wool blend from Elie Tahari
The camo skinnies are reversible! (Flip Side from Target -- thank you Kkards!)
The jacket is a beautiful espresso leather from Wilson's Leathers 
And the shoes are Isabel Toledo for Payless.

    Ooh la la!  You have hit the right note - edgy but not rugged.  
  • Suz replied 9 years ago
    This is great!! Love them with the ladylike peplum and the sleek jacket. 

    And they will be versatile, too. I know you mentioned on Krista's thread that you Just. Don't. Do. Casual -- but there are times when you really need to dress down a bit, and these will give you more options.

    Wild and crazy! Too awesome!

    I like the contrasts you have made here!
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Suz- yes it's true I don't do casual (often or well). But that is why I'm here on YLF because sometimes you don't want to look precious and delicate or touch-me-not, you want to look pulled together and also like you are ready for anything even if it includes lifting boxes and a two-mile hike.

    I love this look for you! And you got those fabulous skinnies from Target? Believe it or not, I am on my way to the grocery store guessed it...Target! I just might have to steal this look ;)

  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Karie -- I hope they have them where you are! You'd look fab in this look.  

    I had to order these on line because they were low/out-of-stock every where I went.
  • Jjsloane replied 9 years ago
    I really like these on you. You could also try them using Angie's white top, red accent, olive bottoms. Killer shoes too. 
  • Thistle replied 9 years ago
    Love this on you.  The belt really make it IMHO. It adds just the right touch. The shoes also am up the style but not the ruggedness. Fab!
  • Karie replied 9 years ago
    They were all out at my Target, too, Day Vies.  - They are not available on-line any more either:( You are lucky you got them when you did, and didn't wait!
  • celia replied 9 years ago
    If it could be done via Internet I would whistle right now. You look amazing,so many good things going on in this outfit. Perfecto!
  • Jaime replied 9 years ago
    Fabulous with and without the jacket - and I love your hair!
  • deb replied 9 years ago
    Great shoes! I I really like the way you styled this.
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Aww Karie -- I'm sorry you didn't find any I had a thread about camo skinnies last week thinking I'd missed the boat on them. You may be able to scoop up a pair using the sources the ladies provided me including

    Here's the link to my post with all the links:

    Reversible camo skinnies?  Looking that fab?  Yes, please!  Love them.  YLF!
  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 9 years ago
    You look gorgeous in this outfit. You are rocking those skinnies! The proportions are just right, with the peplum top over skinnies and heels. I also like the mix of edgy and feminine elements. The jacket is beautiful. (Reversible skinnies! Wow--that sounds like a great piece of clothing to travel with!)
  • Lantana replied 9 years ago
    Stunning and beautiful. You could wear no other belt with this, it is perfection. 
  • Ingunn replied 9 years ago
    You never disappoint! I love the camo skinnies on you, and I think the peplum is perfect with them. The (gorgeous) shoes and belt add enough polish, but not too much at all. The leather jacket is to die for. Well done!
  • Angie replied 9 years ago
    You did a great job adding a sophisticated edge to these camos! I like the proportions of the outfit, and your curly hair! I wonder how the outfit would look sans the belt, Day Vies? Did you try that option? You'd maintain waist definition with the peplum.
  • Tanya replied 9 years ago
    Love the outfit, such a fun way to dress up the camo skinnies.  The combo with peplum top is really unexpected, yet it works very well.
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Angie -- Great suggestion. The outfit looks just as good without the belt and  I initially wanted to wear just the top sans the belt but it's slightly too big (so it slides around). Once I have it altered -- I'll try this again without the belt. But being on team wear got in the way of that :-D! 
  • Angie replied 9 years ago
    I hear you! Go Team Wear! You are adorable.
  • Liz A. replied 9 years ago
    Now I want a pair of camo skinnies!
  • kkards replied 9 years ago
    the camo skinnys look great! and i love them with the peplum top--really helps to soft the look!
    i tried them on in the store, but the cut was not right for me.
  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago
    Looking great DV!
  • Adelfa replied 9 years ago
    Those skinnies look amazing on you.  And I love the hair!
  • Deborah replied 9 years ago
    So glad these worked out for your DV.  They look great.  Now you have me looking out for a peplum top to wear with mine.  I have worn mine twice in the past three days!  Im finding them so versatile.  Easy to wear casually and quite easy it would seem to dress up.  You are rocking them.
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Deborah -- it's so nice to know I can inspire someone who inspires me. Thank you. 
  • Beth Ann replied 9 years ago
    Camo ---- DV style!  Love the playful sophistication here.  I also hear you on the difficulties of really casual dressing.  I think it just gets tougher for me.  I was also "team dressy," even in high school, but an oversized college sweatshirt looks cute on an 18 year old.  Now?  Not so much.  Time to go to dress down school!  My summers are very casual, so now's as good a time as any!
