Emerald vintage cotton tee, J. Crew. Plaid slim pants, H&M. Leopard pointy toe flats, Gap. Camel cashmere cardigan, gift from my mother. Vintage Margaret Smith bird bag. Leather woven belt, thrifted.
I love how rich this shade looks against warm tones. My outfit has a heavy dose of vintage inspiration despite not having too many vintage pieces in it. However, this type of look just pleases me to no end. There are some outfits that I never feel quite right in, and then there are these types of outfits. My confidence was soaring,especially when the sales associate at Planet XChange (a local consignment store) told me I looked like I just stepped out of a J. Crew catalog.
Emerald chinos, Urban Outfitters. Gingham shirt, H&M. Socks, Target. Vintage tie, tie clip, and shoes.
Would you believe me if I said that we did not plan to wear the opposite of each other? Patrick and I both have such an affinity for plaid that it is no surprise that we ended up wearing even matchier outfits than we intended. I love the way the bright red and blue play with the green of his pants. As soon as he found these chinos in Urban Outfitters, we both knew right away what a staple they would become.
Isn't in wonderful when a color just makes your heart sing? Like a swipe of vivid red lipstick or that perfectly faded blue of old denim, emerald is quickly becoming a signature shade that surrounds me with joy as soon as I incorporate it into an outfit. I love that it is the perfect gender neutral shade. I don't think there's an item of clothing that I wouldn't want to try in emerald.
