Green with envy

... at ALL THE GREEN there is around.  Yup, I have a green feeling this A/W.  All shades  Although admittedly, it's less the khaki that's floating my boat, I'm leaning towards the emerald, the teal and the bottle. 

And I think - the trick to giving green a whole new lease of life, is to team it with other colours, you may not typically associate with green. 

So red is an obvious one (thank you Gucci).  But how about pink?  Turquoise?  All shades of blue in fact.  Even lilac.   Alternatively put all the greens together as an outfit.  I did this last year with red - head to foot - and loved it.  Loved it and this year, it's going to be green that's my colour of choice.

I'm not going to lie - there is one outfit in particular that has made me come over all green.  I cannot stop thinking about this jumper.  Mainly because it would go with this skirt which is also on my mind waaaay too much.  

Dainty polka dot print wrap skirt from Ganni £170  I have this skirt in the leopard and simply love it.

BUT- teamed with this jumper.  

Juillard mohair and wool-blend jumper from Ganni £370

However - I copped a feel of this in Selfridges last week and holy hell - it was like wire wool.  I didn't try it on but oh my lord it felt SO itchy.  Now maybe it's just a sublime piece of heaven when you do try it on (I didn't as I really didn't want to fall in love with it...) but it made me think - surely for that price we can find something a LOT more purse friendly.

The nearest I can find is this from TKMAxx.

Outfit from yesterday when Summer came back for a day.  This is the dress I bought from TKMaxx a couple of weeks ago and I had thought I was going to have to keep it for our holiday in October but whoop - managed to squeeze another dress day in.

Navy and white spot dress - TKMaxx (ss18)
Scarf on bag - Liberty's (gift current)
Bag - Anya Hindmarch from Bicester Village (ss17)
Shoes - Jigsaw (gift ss18)
Earrings - Monica Vinader (from paid partnership)
Sunglasses - Chloe from Very Exclusive (ss17)

So nope - not a lot of green on.  But it's coming... it's definitely coming.  I have a green skirt already (although that Ganni one is CALLING ME!) and I shall be wearing that in the next couple of days for sure.  

Tomorrow I will be back with... hmmm I've a couple of gems up my sleeve - I have SO much I want to explore this season and I have had loads of requests so September should be a busy month. 

I now have to go and try and remember where I put the school uniform I got way back in July when I was being spectacularly organised.  Didn't think that one through, did I.....

  1. I don't think I own one green piece (I think that comes from having a dark green uniform at high school-yuk!!
    I've never ventured back there but I am loving the chunky knit v'neck from Mango ;-)

    1. So was mine! Bottle Green, apple green and red. Boak. BUT I've come round to love it!

  2. I have ganni jumpers and they really are soft and lovely to wear. I have the striped one brand new with tags if anybody wants to buy at a much reduced price.

  3. Have you seen the whistles green leopard skirt? Green and leopard, what's not to love?

    1. Off to have a look although Whistles can be a dodge length on me.
