My friend Lindsey from Life Lutzurious and I have teamed up to show you how to style camo today! We had a blast getting coffee, getting caught up and shooting these looks. Lindsey is one of my blogging friends that I text or talk to weekly, if not daily, about all things blogging, baby and Birmingham. How about those 3 B’s?! Ha!
Lindsey and I actually had our babies about 3 weeks apart. Asher and Leyton have enjoyed a few coffee shop play dates while we hang out and it’s been really fun to see them change together over time. Lindsey also did a couple of Whole30 Facebook lives with me so you may recognize her from those videos as well.

Camo has been pretty popular for a while now, but for some reason I haven’t had any yet in my wardrobe. I think it was because I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on it at popular retailers if I didn’t know how to style camo easily AND in a way that I knew would last longer than a season. But then, I saw these pants on Instagram for only $45 at Bergoch Boutique and I knew I had to have them.
As I’ve started to wear these camo pants, I’ve found that they are not as intimidating to style as I originally thought they may be, plus they give me a little edge to my normal everyday mom-iform. For this look, I paired them with a basic Bella Dahl top (which you can commonly find at Nordstrom Rack for a steal!), some nude pumps that I got on clearance at J Crew Factory, a neutral structured bag (from Danielle at India Hicks) and a simple boutique necklace.
How to Style Camo:
- Don’t pattern mix: I’ve found pairing simple neutrals or even a pop of bright work best with camo but if you’re brave enough to pattern mix with a much smaller piece to go with it like a scarf, go for it! However, sometimes it can look a bit busy if you have too much going on.
- Wear accessories or jewelry: You’ll notice both Lindsey and I paired our camo pants with layers of a vest or a jacket and some jewelry to make our looks a little more feminine.
- Keep it simple: Since your camo is taking the spotlight, try to keep your other clothes and accessories relatively understated. My nude heels are simple, classic, elegant and make it again-pretty! Let your camo shine and enjoy your tough girl edge.
