When packing for travel, I pick the shoes and purse first and plan the wardrobe around those items!  That’s probably a little backwards compared to most people!  For my Chicago trip, I chose the tall brown boots and green Chanel purse.  So all clothing items had to match those warm colors.  This green dress, previously worn here, fit the bill and went into the suitcase.  Green matches green right?  {According the Health Magazine, army green is flattering on all skin tones.  Give it a try!}

dress :: Anthropologie
belt :: H&M
earrings :: Premier
cuff :: MaiTai
scarf :: Hermes (gifted from Mr. S)
boots :: Dillards
bag :: Chanel
After getting the dress on, I felt there was too much green going on!  Did I just say that green matches green? Oops!  I threw on the scarf at the last minute.  It was an added incentive since I had to check my carry on bag and didn’t want to loose the scarf!
This is a modified cowboy knot.  It’s very easy to wear (and can even hide food stains on your shirt – just saying).  I used a 90cm square scarf.

 Fold it into a triangle.

 Tie it into a knot and place over your head like a necklace.

You can even wear a square scarf as an “infinity scarf” as shown in my old post here!

Okay, since my title was a little deceiving, I’ll give you a little info on going green for real!  Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours — or the equivalent of a half a gallon of gasoline.  Go green!  {Factoid from A Recycling Revolution}

    Love this dress and the scarf is such a perfect splash of color. I agree with Health, army/olive green works with most skin tones and coordinates well with most colors- its such a staple color for me my bff calls me Wilderness Girl, lol.

  3. SkippySays says:

    Love this look and I agree that adding a splash of color to break up the greens was the way to go! And I love the color of those brown boots!

    Hi Sam: I adore this outfit for many reasons. The military green dress is super chic/boots are beautifully paired with the dress. Adding that H scarf is just brilliant. I have been thinking of ways to incorporate a bright and bold fushia and salmon colored H scarf into my outfit without looking tacky, you answered my pray! Thanks for an inspiration :)

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on my post. I totally agree that we all can feel that pressure at some point in our blogging journey. However, I think it is important to remember the “true” joy of blogging. Once we are stressful to blog, there is no fun/motivation. Last but not least, I believe in “not blogging to please anyone but myself”. Sounds tacky and self centered but isn’t that why we started blogging, right? Have a great week and happy blogging :o)

  9. Cara says:

    What a beautiful scarf, it’s so bright and colorful and really makes your outfit.  I’ve never packed that way, but it would be good for me to to try, I always take WAY too many shoes and purses! 

  10. mia lei says:

    love the way you wear this scarf!


  11. The scarf was a great last minute addition! It really looks fantastic with the green dress. Love the boots too! You have a pretty great collection of shoes :-)

  12. The strangest thing about green is 1. how few people realize it looks great on many people and 2. how easy it is to match anything to it!  What a gorgeous Scarf, Mr. S has fabulous taste…

  13. Samantha says:

    Hey Wilderness Girl! LOL!  That’s cute!  Good call on army green being a staple color – I’ve seen it on you and it does look great!

  14. Samantha says:

    Thank you Patience!

  15. Samantha says:

    Thank you Inna!  These brown boots have been such a deal when you look at cost per wear!  These are my go to brown boots!

  16. Samantha says:

    Hi Lili!  Thanks!  :o)

  17. Samantha says:

    Oh girl!  I am a messy and clumsy person, as much as I hate to admit it!  I would loved to be called “Grace”, but I’m the opposite!  And yay for recycling back in NOLA!!  :o)

  18. Samantha says:

    Jeannie!!  Thank you – I had a great time in Chicago meeting Bessie and hanging with the hubby!

  19. Samantha says:

    June!!  Actually, I got a red lipstick because you said it looks nice the last time I wore it!  Thanks!  And I wasn’t sure about orange against green at first – but I like it!

  20. Samantha says:

    I usually take way too many shoes and purses too!  I was reading some fashion book about travel, and it said that you should take 3 shoes (max) on a weekend trip so I’ve been trying to follow that rule!!

  21. Samantha says:

    Thank you mia lei!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!  :o)

  22. Samantha says:

    Thanks H&K!  Shoes (and purses) are what get me into trouble!!  :op
