Today's Everyday Fashion: Nautical Emerald





Last night I was headed to the CFL Lady Bloggers meet up and snapped these photos on my way out the door. I was running late (as usual) so I started trying on dresses from last year including this emerald number. I wore it with turquoise and yellow last summer, so I went for a different vibe by adding my favorite anchor necklace, nautical belt and blue bow shoes. Would you wear emerald + nautical together? What style of emerald dress is your favorite?

Dress: Nordstrom Rack, $22 last year
Belt: Limited, $20
Anchor necklace: Serenity Blue, $35 (similar)
Shoes: Tailor & Stylist c/o, $45
Rings: My Stella & Dot 1
Bracelets: My Stella & Dot 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

  3. Love emerald green! Not sure I would pair it with nautical, but I'm not really a nautical kinda girl. I have a silly question. I've been following you for about a year and for the life of me cannot figure out what "c/o" means when you list something. Example: Shoes: Tailor & Stylist c/o, $45

  10. I think it is courtesy of...like she was given the shoes by a particular company.

  11. Melissa, don't be afraid to ask if you see something and have questions!! :-) The c/o means "courtesy of" and was provided by the company. See my Disclosure tab for a full explanation, hope this helps!! http://www.jseverydayfashion.com/p/js-comment-policy.html

  13. YES!!! GREEN!!! I must stock up now! Thanks for all the links, J! You are a goddess! And yes, I'd wear emerald and nautical - such a fresh take on a traditional look. Here's my take on keeping nautical modern: http://myclosetcatalogue.com/2013/03/29/week-6-of-navy-tangerine-and-nautical-niftiness/

  14. I have a green dress that has been sitting in my closet, I need to bring that out. You just inspired me. The green looks great with the polka dotted heels!

  18. The shoes don't really match, I would go with a nude shoe or a bright blue or orange for contrast.

  20. I think the emerald and nautical colors go super well together! Emerald is one of those colors that is so versatile it goes with pretty much anything, it seems. Love the Asos fit & flare!

  21. I love your green dress!

  22. Gorgeous color - my favorite! I don't have much nautical in my closet or jewelry box. Not sure why since I'm intrigued by sailing and love the water! I'm wearing an emerald skirt today paired with a navy top. Fun combo. :)

  23. Looking cute as always! I would call this a Kelly green, though. Emerald is darker.

  24. Love it! What a brilliant colour combination.

  26. Hey J, I am wanting to order a dress from Asos and it is my first time, do you have any idea if they run big or small? I am between and 2 and a 4 but 4 usually runs big, and a 2 usually fits perfect

  27. J-
    I would wear emerald green with nautical accents for sure. As for style- of the ones you pictured I would probably pick the high-low maxi. I tend to be cold everywhere I go so I'm a huge fan of maxi dresses for the warmth. The high-low hemline lets me still stay with a maxi but adds some "freshness" to it.
    Thanks, Jessica

  29. I've only ordered from ASOS once, but they are European so the sizes tend to run 2-3 sizes small. So if the tag says US size 8, it is actually a US size 2 or 4. I would refer to the size charts on the website too, to help you decide!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes ma'm! They still have it and it's only $10 on the website right now! :-)

  31. What you wear at h&m you will wear at ASOS!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I need those heels in my closet ASAP!!! But are they comfy and do they run true to size?

  33. I love emerald paired with nautical looks! Emerald and navy always look great together! I'm thinking emerald skinnies and a navy+white striped T!

  34. I'm beyond obsessed with ASOS, period.

  36. I don't think I'd ever wear emerald or kelly green. Seems a bit scary for my skin. Maybe I'll try it in a fitting room some day...your blog inspires braveness...lol. I would have like to see stronger navy accessories to tie those awesome heels in to the outfit better. But you always look great! I like #3 from Nordstrom, but I doubt I'd be brave enough to wear it.
