Friday Favorites: Color Crush

It's Friday....& a Friday to a long weekend, yay!!  On this weeks Favorites, I wanted to talk about a current color crush I'm having.  That crush would be Emerald Green.  I actually have always loved the color, but it's been more eye-catching to me recently perhaps because of the pending season change (Summer please stay!).

Some of the items that have caught my attention are:

Color Crush; Emerald

I've actually tried on both the Express Portofino & the Lace Skirt from Limited, but didn't buy them at the time.  However, I've regretted not purchasing both items ever since!  Perhaps I'll catch them with the sales running this weekend!?

Believe it or not, this color actually mixes well with a handful of other color, which makes it more versatile than you would think.

Emerald Versatility

Some of my favorite color mixing combos with Emerald are using pinks & corals.  For even more options try adding pops of purple, lavender, gold, mustard, merlot, or raspberry.  Of course then you also have your standard neutrals of navy, grey, black, white, khaki & of course the good old Chambray!  Told you there were lots of options!

I'm not going to gab your ear off today, but wanted to just share what I'll be looking for when I hit sales this weekend.  I should mention here that nearly every store out there is having sales in honor of Labor Day so now is a good time to take advantage of 1) getting a good deal on something you've already been eyeing & 2) I'm guessing you can find great discounts on Summer items too!  I know you won't be able to wear them very much longer this season (depending on where you live), but it's still a great time to take advantage of some great deals.  Even if you can only wear it for a couple more weeks, you can still add layers to those Summer items during the Fall & Winter, & there's always next year too!!  Here's just "some" of the offers sitting in my inbox right now...& this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Have a great long weekend!  I want to hear about your great deals if you hit the shopping this weekend!!

  2. I am having a thing for green lately too! I don't know that I've been wearing it more necessarily, just finding myself drawn to it. I'm especially interested in getting a green handbag. I have one on my wishlist from Piperlime but need a coupon from them. Maybe they'll have one for Labor Day? Anyway, I'm loving so many of the pieces in your sets! The earring, bag, cuff!! LOVE.

  3. This emerald green color is one of my favorite colors to wear! Love your choices here! That Kate Spade bag is totally amazing and so is that pencil skirt!


  4. I wear a lot of emerald. I have a couple of mystic topaz rings that have an emerald shade to them and I like to pick up one of the colours in the ring for my outfits. :)
