I have been SO OBSESSED with this emerald/forest green color this season! So much so I keep having to tell myself no when I try to buy ANOTHER piece in this color. I have a blazer and high waist, wide leg pants, but I also want a sweater now… In reality, how many pieces in the same color is acceptable to have?
I think I need to limit myself because the blazer and the pants are definitely statement pieces. I have gotten a ton of compliments on both, and both are super comfy because they are over-sized. I prefer the looser blazers that do not have shoulder pads. Fitted blazers can be so restricting, and I have been loving pairing them over a casual outfit and adding heels like I did below. Jeans, a graphic tee, blazer, and booties or heels just looks so chic. Mixing style genres (is that the right term?) is so fun and kind of edgy. I also like that it is not my usual style. One of my co-workers told me she couldn’t figure out my style and I took it as such a compliment!
Both of these pieces are also great as your one pop of color with an all black outfit, the blazer especially. For work I would do a black blouse, black ankle slacks, the blazer, gold accessories, and either black or leopard shoes (heels or flats – preferably mules/slides).
Check them out below! To be honest, I am most likely going to buy a sweater still… I just love the color with my red hair. Stay tuned! Styles linked below:
Blazer | Top (is 4 years old, any white graphic tee will work, I like this one here 🙂 | Jeans (similar) | Booties (similar)
Top (potential alternative) | Pants | Heels
Although I was hesitant at first, I have finally given into the wide leg pant trend, but so far ONLY for work pants. I have seen a few bloggers wear some fun colored ones and I was drawn to the style. I found a pair of beautiful emerald green ones at Nordstrom and had to have them. I kind of felt weird at first and then got strangely confident in them, they were so cute and everyone at work loved them! Like my last post Investment Pants, these too were an investment, but they seem like a nice quality and I have already worn them twice. This pair by Leith, comes in four different colors. I really, REALLY wanted the pink as well but my first “investment pants” are pink so I figured I shouldn’t. BUT! The Nordstrom Fall Sale is on and these pants are part of it and under $50 right now so you can bet your bottom dollar I got them and I am so excited to wear them! It is spirit week at work this week so I have to wait until next but that is okay. I am also super obsessed with the black top I wore with the pink pants. It is on sale for $15. I actually bought the gray one last week and liked it so much I went back for the black.
