Since stores are clearing winter inventory to make room for spring, this sweater is currently on sale for $23.40 HERE. I also have it in black, shown earlier this week in Monday’s post. It also comes in grey and beige. I don’t remember there being beige when I bought it, but I like that one too! Some people have said this sweater is not great for longer arms, which I could see. I’m 5’6″ and the sleeves are barely long enough for me, though I tend to cuff them up once or bunch them at the elbows to show my watch anyway.
Regarding quality, here’s an honest heads up: I am more in love with how it fits me and its use case in my wardrobe than its quality. I personally don’t find it itchy, but it’s not super soft either. Several people in the PMT Style Challenge tried it gave it mixed reviews. Some totalllyyyy loved it while others found the sleeves too short or found it itchy. (Worth a try though if you’re in the market, especially because Nordstrom has free shipping and free return shipping.) Also, it needs a sweater shaver fairly often. (I got THIS sweater shaver for $12 during Christmas time. Haven’t used a sweater shaver since I was a kid playing with my mom’s, but one of these is WONDERFUL! Makes your sweaters and cardigans look new again!) I’m size 6/8 or S/M and got this in M.
At the bottom of this post I also link to a few other similar olive sweaters at similar price points, some even cheaper. Onto the outfits!
This is how I’ve most often worn the sweater, and I’ve done it a whole lot. Like I said–I get into a rut in the middle of seasons. Nonetheless, I still love this combo. I wore stripes underneath because I needed an extra layer in addition to my HEATTECH, and striped long sleeves are currently the only long sleeved cotton tees I have. I ended up loving the pop of stripes coming out of the sleeves!

I’ve worn the olive sweater with a turquoise necklace like this, but with riding boots for a more casual daytime look. I have yet to wear it with leopard pumps as shown here, but it would be great for a date or dinner with friends. I love olive with turquoise as well as olive with leopard print, and this is not the first time I’ve done the two combos together! I did a couple summer versions with this combo, one HERE and another HERE.
In case you still want to pick up an olive sweater for the remainder of the season and carry it into early spring, here are a few options between $18 to $39:
