Spring Trends IV: Emerald Green

TGIF all and  Happy Good Friday!

This is the last week of the Spring Trends challenge and the final trend on the list is emerald green.  If you haven’t heard,  Pantone has crowned it the color of the season (side note: Who is Pantone? Lol).  I decided to end this thing with a bang and combine emerald-green with ALL the trends (black & white, floral and leather) featured in the challenge!

Please check out the other bloggers participating in the challenge for their take on emerald green:

Curvy Ceo

Girls of Plenty

Real Girl Runway

Society of Curves

Heart Print & Style

Have a wonderful weekend and HAPPY EASTER!

    I love the skirt and I love that you showed is versatility by showing it in several outfits. As a redhead, I LOVE emerald green and was tickled to grab a pashmina in that color this week.

    Well, I guess I’m in the groove then because I just purchased an emerald green dress from JW Crew for our trip to Costa Rica……it’s fabulous because it’s an “everywhere” dress….beach, dinner, maybe even sleeping in it…..would work great for you while you’re in France.

    BTW….you ALWAYS look so adorable.

      Thank you so much! Costa Rica sounds so AWESOME! Its one of the places I want to visit very soon!

    • March 31, 2013 / 12:42 am

      Thank you! Im so glad I bought that jacket from Kohls. It was one of my best Fall/Winter purchases!

    • March 31, 2013 / 12:40 am

      Thank you! Im learning to love floral print and look forward to wearing it again.

  10. March 30, 2013 / 2:30 pm

    The dress is such a beautiful color. It looks fabulous with the jacket!

    • March 31, 2013 / 12:39 am

      Thank you! Ive been wanting to try a monochrome outfit and Im glad the blouse and skirt matched perfectly!

  11. March 30, 2013 / 5:37 pm

    Um…yes to you rocking all of the trends with emerald! Such a fantastic idea. Love the last outfit!

    • March 31, 2013 / 12:38 am

      Thank you so much! I had fun pairing the skirt with the trends from the challenge.

  12. March 30, 2013 / 6:14 pm

    Well done. Very versatile skirt. I like the dress with the leather jacket the best. The floral top and the black and white peplum are competing in my head for second place. The pink jacket ends last as I think it makes you a bit straight, too boxy as I cannot see your lovely waist. Perhaps it is just the way that photo is taken.
    You really rock these vibrant colours. And your shoes… Perfect. I bet you have a lot of shoes haha. OK on second thoughts the B&W peplum wins second place.

    • March 31, 2013 / 12:35 am

      Thank you! I do have too many shoes! LOL
      Im glad you like the leather and black & white look!

    Fantastic job Georgette! You definitely went out with a bang combining emerald with all of the featured trends. You are so encouraging! Keep it up.

    I love the green skirt with the black and white peplum top. Green is such a great color for brown skin women.
