We’re back with the second #StylishMonday link up, and as it’s officially Spring we’re sharing how we style seven shades of green! It’s obviously a popular colour because you may remember the Style Not Age theme for last month was also green. Luckily I have plenty to choose from in my wardrobe so it was easy for me to choose two different outfits.
I’d already been planning on putting together a green and orange outfit when the two green themes came about. Although I ended up rushing this one a bit, I managed to vaguely achieve the look I’d had in mind. I have a fabulous pair of green patterned boots that I wanted to wear but they just didn’t work with the trousers, so I opted for leopard print shoes instead. A plain neutral would have been a bit uninteresting, and leopard print is a neutral, right? 😉
I’ve also worn this green coat with red accessories; it’s a shade that works just as well with contrasting bright hues as it does with neutrals. It was a great eBay bargain, costing around £20. I added a second, darker shade of green with this charming Laura Ashley blouse. The orange in the bird print makes it perfect for teaming with accessories in shades of apricot, terracotta and ginger. Without realising, I picked out the same bag and sunglasses that I wore with it previously. Well if it ain’t broke…
I’ve had these trousers absolutely ages, and truth be told, I’m not overly keen on them, which is why I don’t wear them very often. They’re quite thin so better suited to the Summer. The lack of pockets in trousers always bothers me, even if it means a more flattering fit. Maybe I just need to be more creative with them.
SHOP THE LOOK
I love this bird print, it reminds me of the Royal Crown Derby paperweight ornaments. I’m instantly drawn to anything with a nature motif 🙂
