TGIF! I’m back at it with my SxS girls for our monthly series styling one trend… four ways! This month we decided to go with the color of the year. This year’s color was a bit of a shocker for most… when trying to find the perfect description for it.. all I can think is matcha! In comes “Greenery”. While this color is a little tough to work with… I really do love it! Funny enough… this color of the year is the exact color of the curtains in my office. Another possible coincidence? My office is the exact same color scheme. I loved that all of us ended up with the same color palette. Blush and really any lighter pink shade are perfect to pair with “Greenery”. It really tames down the shock of the color.
Dress: Asos (Under $50!), Jacket: Zara s/o (similar here and here), Booties: Vince Camuto (love them and they’re on sale!), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Earrings: Baublebar, Lip Color: Maybelline Color Jolt in Never Bare (been wearing this on repeat lately!)
While I went a little off key with my color palette (man… this color of the year is tough to find!)… I really love this dress and think it gets the point across. Honestly you don’t have to go right for the exact color. If you do your research and are on the hunt for it… you will find that most inspiration actually features several shades of green! (Afterthought… I should have featured my favorite matcha latte in these photos… THE BEST YA’LL!) I went with my trusty booties for this because let’s get real… it’s still winter! So we gotta work with our surroundings… okay? My booties are from back in the fall, but are back in stock and under $100! They are perfect for any look really!
If more casual is your thing… you could totally layer a sweater over this dress to make it more cozy! Wear what makes you happy. Seriously.
Funny story… I learned the true meaning of that this past week. I did a campaign for dry shampoo… and y’all video is scary for me… and that happened to be part of the deal. So here I am trying to make this work (later than planned of course…) and just didn’t feel right. I changed again.. tried to film it… and it continued. So then I went to my closet and took a second to breathe. I thought… just grab something you REALLY love. You know those pieces? The ones that no matter what you throw on and feel like a new human? Yeah… I grabbed that dress. A couple tries at it and we were done… oh and we were laughing again. Crazy what a good closet staple can do for your life!
So there you have it… how to rock that crazy green that everyone was freaking out over the later part of last year. Make sure to check out Taylor, Amanda, and Victoria for their full looks!
