Friday Fancies #1

Emerald City

So I stumbled across this link up over at {long distance loving} - to get started -  you sign up on the mailing list for the weekly topic. So I thought I would give it a try. I have been trying desperately to make myself more stylish so I thought why not participate in this link up to help myself become better at putting cute outfits together. Currently, I am focusing on making my work wear more exciting.  Normally I am someone to put a bunch of blah things together because they "match" so recently I have tried to focus on pops of color, playing with patterns and putting colors together that you don't automatically think of ... so when this week's topic was emerald ~ the color of the year.  I thought I would try to be as stylish as I could and come up with a fun way of using emerald with out the obvious ... green everything or black and green.  This was super fun to put together ... now I am going to try to create this look for myself!  I LOVE that skirt!!

So have you jumped on the emerald bandwagon?

    1. Thanks! It actually comes in mint or this blush pink ... I loved the idea of the soft pink and the emerald rather than a "matchy" lighter green. This post was so much fun - looking forward to linking up next Friday. Have a great weekend!
