I Spy: It’s Easy Being Greenery

Alright everyone, the smoke has cleared, the prophets have spoken and it has been determined that the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is…Greenery!

The Chosen One

I will be completely honest and say that when I first saw this was the color of 2017 I was less than thrilled. I mean I spoken before to my love for green and I stand by that affirmation, but this shade can be a bit tricky and is not necessarily universally flattering. But as the color lived with me for a bit, I realized all the wonderful possibilities for adding pops of green to my wardrobe and now I am 100% on board. So below I have put together a few items to help you hop over to the greenery-er side of the fence and start making everyone around you turn…whatever shade it is they associate with envy!

If you’re not quite ready to dive into the green pool (and maybe you shouldn’t be; pretty sure pools are not supposed to be green…), a great way to dip your toe in the waters is to try to add a pop of color with your accessories. Try a green bag or maybe a great pair of tassel earrings as a finishing touch for a neutral-filled outfit. Or if patterns are more your scene, maybe a floral scarf or dotted bangle are the perfect way to green up your look without going too crazy.

If, however, you are ready to fully commit to a green 2017, there are some gorgeous options just ready to be styled! Why not brighten up your workday with a pair of green pants or twirl into your weekend in a printed dress? And you can never go wrong with a cute midi skirt.

And hey, who said this whole green trend had to be limited to your wardrobe? Why not perk up your décor with some fun pillows, or spice up your kitchen with a bright tea kettle, or even add some actual greenery to your home (and do your best to keep it alive. Believe me, if I can do it, so can you).

So all that we are saying is give green a chance!

Like My New Shoes?

What do you think of my new kicks? I thought they’d be pretty cute and versatile, what with these colder months coming up.

Oh, and I also picked up a new top… because I have a sneaking suspicion that my current wardrobe is going to be fitting a little strange any day now 🙂
