Emerald City (See Jane Wear)

Generra top (via Gilt), J Brand jeans, BR necklace, Rebecca Minkoff bag

If only I could actually wear a sleeveless top outside right now.  Sadly, there was a jacket atop this outfit when I went out in it a few weeks back.  I picked up this top on Gilt Groupe after deciding I needed some green in my closet.  I've never been a huge fan of the color, but I found it refreshing and surprisingly versatile (i.e. both work and play friendly) so maybe I'm onto something here.  Pardon the wrinkles on the top; I wore it immediately after I unwrapped it.  Whenever UPS stops by my house, it's like Christmas--when you wear everything as soon as you open it (does anyone else do that?).

Super chic outfit. Though I have lots of color in my closet, I do not have a lot of green. I need to get some more green clothes in my life! But anyway, I love Gilt too.

Nikki said...

your top is too adorable ^^ i love that colour :) I can't quite discibe what colour it is... Only in Belgium we say, and this is trandslated 'cause in English this colour does not excis, apple blue sea green.

For some reason I always stay away from green, but any time I wear it I feel good. Strange. You look great! Hope it warms up soon.

Super cute outfit and I hear ya on the green opinion- sometimes it can be a garish and harsh color, but the green you have chosen is more of a jewel tone- love it!

Miranda said...

Great top and shoes, you look so nice and put together!
Love the camera angles too :)

I seriously wish I could put outfits together like you do! You have such a great style!

April said...

I do love wearing new items right away...but then I usually think about who else has touched it and get grossed out.

Anyway, the color looks amazing on you! Go Green!

Cute shoes!! Here's to an Easter basket filled with ... more shoes?

The Closet Shopper said...

Yes. Of course I do that. Are you kidding me? It's so much like Christmas when the UPS man comes to my house, that he gets excited for me. It's the way I throw open the door and jump up and down as I'm taking the box from him. He laughs and says, "Enjoy! See you soon." haha.

Who are those shoes, though? So great.

xo,
Tracy
