Emerald



Hi my loves! I hope you all had relaxed and wonderful weekends! I did but it rained the whole weekend. In fact, we ran out to take these pics during the one dry hour we had in the last three days! (that's dedication lol) You may or may not have heard that Pantone announced the color of 2013 to be Emerald! I'd originally planned to wear a red blazer with this look, but decided that I had to wear my green one instead. Emerald is such a versatile and vibrant color that can be easily styled in the winter, spring, summer and fall. Since Emerald is a jewel tone, this beautiful color would best complement rich purples, blues, reds, black, (as I did in this look) and golds. The pairings are endless and I for one, can't wait to incorporate this color into future looks. What do you think about Emerald green?


Style Guide: Blazers take the simplest of looks to the another level. So for a pop of color and added interest, try throwing on a funky blazer with your next look!


Linking up here & here today!

THE LOOK: | Blazer: Vintage | Chambray: Thrifted | Jeggings: XXI | Boots: Target | Clutch: Thrifted |  Scarf & Bangles: Target | Watch: Armitron |

PS. I'm thinking about possibly selling a few new & vintage pieces on the blog, would any of you be interested in shopping my closet? Let me know and if so, I will post them this week. :)

Have a great Monday!

  19. I LOVE green in any shape or form and I am so happy that emerald is 2013's color! In fact, I'm currently helping design a t-shirt and we just changed the color to emerald. I am a little jealous of the blazer, but I'm always usually a little bit jealous of your clothes anyway :)
