this is the first installment of a week focused solely on the color green. the other day when i was putting some new stuff away, i noticed just how much of the stack was green. sure, green is my favorite color but it really hit me when i saw all the different colors of green together just how many and how varied different shades of green can be and how pretty they can look together. i certainly have a thing for mint green but army green has always been a trusted go-to color. lime green is fun for a pop of color in the summer while emerald green looks classy anytime. there's also hunter green, jade, kelly green, neon green and on and on. green green green i love green!
here is the list from the picture above going from left to right:
ann taylor loft modern straight pants in soothing green
j crew no 2 pencil skirt in warm jade

j crew vintage tee in succulent green
j crew zipper ankle jeans in spearmint

j crew tessalate necklace in succulent green
green is everywhere for me. i used a lot of green when decorating, painting my house. also, i prefer mostly green plants in the yard versus flowers of many colors. green is also the color of tiggy's eyes--so beautiful! madison mcpoo is so cute in her st pattys day hat.
so anyway, as a challenge to myself to work only with green this week, lets see outfit number 1. it might seem like a strange pairing these 2 shades of green together but i like them together so much. the cool tone of the pants and top make the necklace stand out nicely. i recommend this necklace very highly. it is easy to wear, goes with alot, looks qual-a-teee and everytime i wear it i get a million compliments. NEED.
also, if i hadnt been on my way to work, i would have styled the outfit with my j crew marci wedges. you will just have to imagine with the pictures. the orange is so pretty with the green. i just love all these colors!
