Every year at this time, I crave some color. This year it’s green. Oh, I just love green anyway. It’s one of those colors that just makes me happy. But this year, Pantone deemed Emerald Green as the color of 2013.
I don’t need an excuse to like green, but I love seeing more shades of green everywhere. And maybe…… it’s an excuse for me to justify some the things I want that happen to be green.
Usually, I want a cardigan sweater in some fabulous color to help me get through the gray January/February weather. This year I really want this shirt from J. Crew. And while it’s not emerald, it’s a pretty green! I see it with skinny jeans or skinny black pants and loads and loads of jewelry (of course). And then, not needing any more reinforcement of wanting this shirt, I saw an episode of Million Dollar Decorators (I love that show!) where Mary McDonald was wearing a green shirt with a massive necklace. Thank you very much.
Another green object that I love is the Le Creuset French Oven. My dishes are all white and my glassware is clear. A beautiful piece of green cookware is exactly what I
Now, I need to start dreaming about the perfect pair of green shoes or.. an actual emerald.
It’s time to ditch the black tights and boots. My heart yearns for cute flats in happy colors! I found a few bright flats that could perk up my wardrobe as I wait for spring to truly arrive.
And then… I found these. They are NOT flats. But they are gorgeous. And yellow. And…who needs a reason? I love them. (and they come in emerald green and cobalt blue too.)
