To the new readers stopping by, welcome! This is Little Nostalgia, my corner of the internet where I talk about DIY projects, affordable style ideas, and the occasional tidbit about owning a small business. Glad to have you!
Most of you know that I don't really wear a lot of color. It's news when I wear yellow. Dark denim and gray is probably my favorite combination, followed closely by dark denim with black or brown. (Wild, I know.) I have been getting better, but I think 2013 might be my time to finally get on the color train for real thanks to Pantone choosing Emerald as the hue of the year. How can you say no to the best shade of green in the world? Here, she beckons:
If you're like me and don't rock many bright colors in general, this is a good way to proceed: Pick a versatile piece, like this blouse that can be dressed up or dressed down ($35), and pair it with something you wear a lot anyway, in my case dark skinny jeans ($46). I would keep the shoes ($40) and purse ($30) neutral so there isn't too much competing for attention, and maybe, maybe, if I'm feeling daring I would add a second pop of color with my earrings ($60) and bracelets ($25).
I haven't actually put that blouse in my cart yet, but it's about .03 seconds from happening. Have you bought anything emerald? Or anything else colorful, like neon or some bright jeans?
