The Husband and I are in the midst of getting ourselves ready for a weekend getaway/mini vacay so this post featuring the color combo of greenery and tan will be short and sweet (and published on time). I don’t have, or at least I didn’t have until recently, much in the way of green in my wardrobe. I’ve been inspired by Pantone’s color of the year choice as well as the revitalized landscape of So Cal after the drought-buster rains we’ve had this past Fall/Winter to add a bit more.
While not quite the color as described by Pantone, the green in my banded collar top still reminds me of the newly lush hillsides in my corner of the world. I grabbed this lovely item off the rack while walking down the aisle of that well-known department store with the bull’s eye logo and put it my shopping cart without a second thought. There had also been a purse with the same print on display that I was tempted by but, on that, I resisted especially since The Husband was with me. Fine, whatever.
The top is sleeveless which I prefer when layering under a cardigan or jacket. The length is perfect for an untucked and loose look as I’m wearing it here, or it could be worn neatly tucked in. The darker color palette makes it suitable for pairing with heavier cooler weather items, a warm weather option when paired with lighter colors, or a mix of both as the weather is in transition.
The color of the cardigan looks a little washed out in these photos but it’s really a lovely shade of heathered oatmeal (or more plainly, tan) and I wear it very often as a completer piece for work during warmer months. We were headed out to dinner after taking these photos so I had grabbed my chain necklace with pearl drop beads and a pair of newly thrifted sandals to complete the look.
Other Ideas And Options For Greenery
Let’s Wrap This Up
Now, onto the Fine-Whatever link up for this week. My featured contributor from the last link up post is Jacqui, the creative force behind Mummabstylish. In her blog post, Jacqui features a pair of DIY frayed hem jeans. Now I’m inspired to try this on a pair of my own jeans.
