Green Is The New Black

In keeping with the theme of spring fashion shows and colors, I wanted to add more green to my wardrobe. After all, it is the color of the year. This particular color is somewhere on the cusp between khaki and acid green, which is perfect for the upcoming season.

This particular kind of light khaki is one of my favorite colors from the green family. It especially looks good with hazel eyes, which I have! This short dress is not exactly what I'm wearing, but the color is perfect.

Although it might not seem like it here, it's actually cold in some places. So I wanted to maintain a wintery look with a matching jacket and skirt. They're not really a two piece but the wool fabric and gold buttons make them look like a set!

The warmer fabric of both the skirt and jacket is great for colder temperatures, while the color is reminiscent of spring.

Finally, the skirt is a wool crepe mini with gold buttons, that's perfect for the colder weather we're still having.

I really love how the skirt and jacket look together, and the hint of green is just the pop of color to make this look a transition into spring.

Since the jacket and skirt look like a perfectly matched suit, I thought the Chanel bag would be just the right sophisticated touch needed here.

While I am maintaining a colder weather look, I went with ankle boots for my shoes. These Manolo boots are perfect right now, bt might be a bit too warm once it really heats up, so I'm taking advantage of wearing them now.
