|Olive green: jazz up a conservatively-cut Windsmoor coat (thrifted) with thrifted MEXX booties, |
bright blue accessories, a patchwork bag, and a cheapie ethnic scarf from the market.
Many thanks to Adrienne over at The Rich Life (on a budget), who, in partnership with Jill over at Everything Just So, is hosting How I Wear My: Green today. I'm really grooving on green these days - all different kinds, in fact. So I thought I'd show you how I've been wearing my greens these days.
|Yesterday: Olive green leather booties, thrifted in France.|
I bought these olive green booties this week at the thrift shop. The dress is thrifted, the necklace was a buck at a vintage jewellery club meeting in Toronto, and the cashmere was a gift.
The great thing about this kind of green, as you see in these pics, is that it doesn't have to really "match anything" - it can work as a neutral.
|Emerald green hat, thrifted in France for 3 Euros. |
Antique carpet bag, about 40 pounds at a UK auction.
Or, as you see above and below, green - from emerald to forest to mint - can stand on its own as an accessory with a bit of zing.
|Vintage mint green angora beret: gift; forest green Bally purse, thifted in France for under 10 Euros.|
|I bought this ring new before I moved to the UK, but it was 50 percent off.|
I love this emerald green stone and silver filigre ring so much that I wear it whenever the hell I want, with whatever the hell I want.
|Thrifted Ellen Tracy silk blouse; new Hermes scarf.|
Or you can go full on with green, matching colours and fabrication for a real style whammy.
|Vintage forest green jacket by Thierry Mugler, 4 Euros.|
And as I recently discovered, dark green rocks with black - who would have thought?
|Pre-pregnancy green: vintage dress, gifted.|
I can't resist throwing in some miscellaneous pre-preggo green shots, when my stomach was reasonably flat and my thighs thinner.
|Thrifted emerald green hoodie with matching (new) turtleneck.|
(Rest of outfit: all thrifted except the pendant, which matches the ring).
|Newborn jacket in emerald and mint greens: thrifted today for 2 Euros.|
And, in a few short months, someone else will be wearing green too! :) :)
