One of the fun things about my recent weight loss aside from getting thinner and being healthy (I’ve lost 17 lbs and 16.5 inches in the past 3 months, Woo Hoo!), is that I get to reward myself with some new clothes…just in time for summer.
The hot color trend for this season is emerald. Now, this color isn’t just “green” – it is a lush and vibrant hue that promotes balance and harmony, and you can find it everywhere from clothes to shoes to handbags. It also just so happens with my skin tone and hair color, emerald looks fantastic on me, but how would I translate it to my wardrobe? Solid head-to-toe color is not a good look for me, I’d look like Slimer from “Ghostbusters.” I chose to go with separates and found a cute navy blue and emerald striped jersey knit pencil skirt pairing it with a cotton emerald-colored three-quarter length sleeve top.
