What to Wear – Pistachio Green

Have you heard? Apparently pistachio green is THE color of spring, 2013. It’s a bright, minty green and goes well with neutrals, metallics, and even coral if you’re daring – see below!

We were up skiing over the weekend and on the second day we were very cliche and while the men skied, my mom, Z, and I did a little outlet shopping. I found a fabulous necklace in pistachio green and my mom found jeans. I thought I would put together an outfit of how to wear this spring’s it color – it’s the exact necklace and jeans we bought this weekend.  Note – wearing all of these items all at once is overkill, but I wanted to show that pistachio green is everywhere!

What to Wear – Business Event

I had an event to go to for work Monday night and I didn’t want to wear a tired old suit so instead, I jazzed up a cute black jumper.  It was still conservative enough for the type of event I was attending, but it allowed me to add some flare and personality.  Here is what I have put together for what to wear to a business event.

1.J.Crew Factory polka dot blouse; 2. Black jumper dress, similar at Bluefly; 3. Nice bright jacket from J. Crew; 4. DKNY opaque black tights; 5.Essie’s she’s pampered; 6. Interesting heels from Anthropologie; 7. A cute sticky notes and fun pen from Paper Source for note taking; 8. kate spade handbag, large enough for all your stuff!

What to Wear – J.Crew Sequin Birds Top

I have been obsessed with J.Crew’s sequin birds top since it came out. Sadly, it’s sold out online, but I found it on clearance (sale on sale) at one of their stores recently. I thought I’d put together an outfit based on this interesting tee.

1. J. Crew sequin birds top; 2. Madewell denim jacket; 3. AG skinny jeans in army green; 4. Red plaid scarf from Forever 21; 5. Pheasant teacup bangle from anthropologie to keep with the bird theme; 6. Red agate strand bracelet from Macy’s; 7. Hinge Fraser Oxfords; and 8. Cross-body bag from Kate Spade Saturday (the cross-body strap doubles as a belt!).

What to Wear – Any Season

I found this great skirt on clearance at Banana Republic recently – cotton, navy with cream stripes – and I had to have it.  I thought it would be great for our trip to Puerto Rico, and it was!  But then when we got home from vacation and I hadn’t totally unpacked I put it on with a sweater, tights, and boots and realized I found the perfect across-all-seasons skirt.  I thought I’d share my outfit ideas with you.

Wear in warm weather….

Couple Things…

Since we’ll be stuck inside all weekend with this crazy “epic” snowstorm coming our way, we decided to head out last night to run errands and grab dinner.  We tried Bobby’s Burger Palace – delicious!  And if you like onion rings, they are out of this world.  We’ll be back!

Have a great weekend, here are some fun links:
