Emerald City



This deep shade of green is my latest obsession - probably due to the fact that I had nothing this color in my closet, until I found this blazer.  Since it arrived, I've had a hard time finding pieces it doesn't go with - it looks fresh paired with mint skinny jeans, takes on a luxe vibe when put with other jewel tones and is completely modern with black & white prints, like these fun polka dot pants.








What I'm wearing:
c/o Sheinside blazer (here), Forever 21 sweater (similar), Worthington pants (on sale here - runs small; recommend sizing up), c/o DMSX pumps (here), c/o Angela + Roi bag (here), c/o Capwell Co. necklace (here), Vintage bracelet, Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Adore

I LOVE that blazer! Is it the exact same as you one you posted a link too? The one online at sheinside looks lighter and the sleeves look longer than the one you have on. Just wondering cause I need to copy you and buy that same one cause it looks so fab and I feel like I have good heels to pair with it! Lol thanks

Oh, I am absolutely loving dark green right now, too. The sweater in my Instagram pic from last week is the only thing I have in the color right now, so I am definitely looking to add more! Also, you always have the best necklaces!

Definitely one of my favourite posts of yours so far - I am so in love with that blazer and I am so inspired by this unexpected colour combo! This look is somewhat retro-inspired and yet it's very modern as well.
