I’ve always had an appreciation for the color green…and I guess today, I can say it’s my favorite color. My career outfits haven’t been anything special these days. Budget crunching (and lent) have kept me from adding to my spring wardrobe. So, I’ve had to reinvent the wheel and go shopping in my own closet every day! But that’s OK. Keeps my mind fresh and agile…full of unique fashion ideas. Because let’s be honest, how many 20-something girls have the money to splurge on Michael Kors and Loubous? If you can, I’m green with envy 😉
OK, back on track. Today, I threw on a green circle-patterned blouse, black capris and some old faithfuls, my kelly green pumps. Nothing I was very proud of, but hey, I was comfy and felt stylish enough. Well, little did I know how much attention my green beauties would bring! Compliments, compliments galore! Even from a few men. I should have known green shoes would make my day. Isn’t that what fashion is all about? Feeling good in what you have on, no matter where it came from?
Spring fever is in full swing, and I’m loving me some kelly green. So if there is nothing else you add to your wardrobe this season, make sure you’ve got color. If green is your thing, then yay! If not, try coral, yellow or royal blue! Be bright, be happy. Try to mix and match shades for unique color-blocking effects. Compliments will surely come your way.
Go Green, ladies.
