Greener scenery

When I first put this outfit on, I thought one thing:
green bombshell

Bombshell.
bombshell
I can't say that's something that often comes to mind, but perhaps it helped that the suggestion was sitting on my dresser.

Needless to say, I love this outfit. I will absolutely wear it again when it gets warmer.
cardi detail
It is starring three new pieces which were Christmas gifts, the cardigan is from DownEast Basics and I love it. The lace panels on the sides are so "Me" and I'm happy that some family members do indeed comprehend my style.

The earrings and top were from different people, but seem to go together perfectly.

Today is green for rainbow tights week, and I wish I had a more vibrant green - these read more as a neutral than a statement. I do really love the olive green with the purple though, it is a combination I've done a number of times.

Today is also the last day in the No Repeats Challenge, I'll have to do a little sum up tomorrow!

These photos were of course taken earlier this week, before the massive snow fall - you can be sure it's all still piled up out there!

That printed purple blouse is fantastic! Great Christmas gifts, all the way around!

Lovely blouse! I really like the muted tights; they lend a really soft feeling to the outfit.

Anna said...

What great Christmas gifts! I love this color combo. I have a pair of tights that same color and you've given me great ideas of new ways to wear them. Thanks!

Gorgeous blouse! The earrings do match really well, don't they? It looks so nice and sunny there...I know these weren't taken too recently, but UGH I am jealous! I feel like it's been cloudy here for days. :|

Anne said...

Olive green is a great neutral! I really like it paired with black and purple. The white cardigan is nice too - I pair black with black in the winter all too easily.

Congrats on finishing No Repeats! I'll be looking forward to your recap!

WOW. I actually LOVE that olive colour SO MUCH. It compliments your skin colour so well. I looooove it.

looove your blouse:)

Isabel said...

u look fabulous, i really love that blouse. its very chic!

à la Modest said...

Glad your family comprehends your style! Mine is kind of a hit-or-miss when I get clothes as gifts. I just got a hoodie from Aeropostale from my brother and his wife, and I got earrings from my other sister in law who claims that when she saw the earrings, it was totally me. I was grateful for the thoughts, but I have never worn earrings at least in her presence. Lol, also I rarely wear hoodies except at home in my jammies. Maybe I'm just a bit complicated to figure out! I don't blame them.

Anyway, nice olive green tights and cardi!

very cute and the waist cinching is so slimming on you, it looks great. The colour combos work so well together as well

I know you were referencing to the perfume, but you do look like a bombshell in this outfit. It's one of the prettiest outfits I've seen on you. And I love the broderie anglaise/crochet look detail on the cardigan...its so darling and totally you!

i can't believe most of this outfit was gifted - each thing is so 'you' and the clothes fit so well. I don't think I've ever been successfully given an item of clothing! There's always something just a bit off with the fit or style. Also I just have to say that those tights are perfect. They're subtle but much softer + less obvious than black.

That is one seriously great cardigan! Love the lace panels and the earrings are just beautiful! I think the green tights look perfect with the rest of the colors of this ensemble--an accent and not overpowering.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Adore. Adore adore adore adore adore. The lacy detail on the cardigan is amazing, I love purple, and green tights! Such a wonderful color combination.

Seriously though. ADORE.

Lindsay said...

You look totally crazy gorgeous! Loving the skirt. It's really making me motivated to get my new black skirt altered already! ;)

Who takes your fab photographs?
