Today's Everyday Fashion: Emerald Green







































I'm completely gaga for the color emerald right now! Last week I snapped this picture on the way out the door to a somewhat formal business meeting. I came up with this outfit the old-fashioned way -- I knew I wanted to wear the shirt and necklace together, so I held up different cardigans and skirts until I found a combo that worked. I've always been a huge fan of this Tory Burch ensemble, however, and it reminds me of this look so I thought I'd include it in today's post! Are you loving the emerald green trend right now?

  3. I love the emerald green trend.  I work at BR and recommend the color as often as possible. 

    I came across this Kate Spade outfit and you popped into my mind! http://www.katespade.com/designer-clothing/womens-tops-and-sweaters/kate-spade-gifting-ellis-cardigan/NJMU1470,default,pd.html?dwvar_NJMU1470_color=001&start=101&cgid=sale

  7. Ohh I love the emerald color too! As a brunette with pale skin, I'm all about the jewel tones and emerald is one of my faves!! I love the combo with the cobalt blue too! I have a pair of cobalt skinnies and I think I'll have to try an emerald top like the forever 21 one with them!

  9. Love this outfit, except not crazy about the necklace. I think it's because the emerald green, blue, and then the yellow pumps already introduce three colors into the mix, and the turquoise necklace just seems like a bit much more to add. Other than that, awesome!

  14. One can never go wrong with green. Nice! That necklace, however looks like it's from Jcrew (unless h&m copied). They only have that necklace in red and black now, but have had other colors in the past. http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/jewelry/necklaces/PRDOVR~92687/92687.jsp

  18. The really vivid, *vibrant* colors in your outfit remind me of these Blue & Green Aurora Borealis colors, (i.e., The Northern Lights!!), in this link, directly Below............ and your cardigan's striking, *electric-blue satin* Button Placket also resembles............ the blue Aurora Borealis  *S.T.R.E.A.K.*............ right across this Anchorage, Alaska, night sky, too!!:
