Going Green

 

The shift from winter to spring can always be tricky when it comes to your wardrobe.  One of my favorite ways to handle the awkward transition is to pair a bright piece with a richer hue in the same color family, like this celery + emerald combo (which also happens to be quite festive for the upcoming holiday).  This blouse, from new-to-me designer Zamrie, is lightweight & ideal for layering under a blazer or sweater/sweatshirt for now, but will be perfect on its own & tucked into a pencil skirt later.  
 
Zamrie is graciously offering a 50% discount to PPF readers - good for any item on the site!  I'm loving this kimono-sleeve blouse & this flowing print top - just use code 'Pennies' (case sensitive) at checkout to get half off your purchase through March 25th.
 
 
 
 

What I'm wearing:
c/o Zamrie blouse (Spring 2013 collection), c/o Sheinside blazer (here), Forever 21 pants (similar here or here), Ralph Lauren pumps (via Marshall's; similar here or here), Mango bag (similar here or here), Mossimo scarf (similar), Vintage earrings (similar) & bracelets, Forever 21 ring (here), Dockers aviators (similar), Nails: Essie Chubby Cheeks, Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Berry

Love it!
It's definitely hard to dress during this transition stage - not really winter anymore but not yet warm enough to call it spring.

I really LOVE the emerald/celery combo. I don't have anything in a celery shade in my wardrobe, but I love that it's such a soft color. I'll definitely be on the look out for something in that pretty hue.
