So after an illness, bad back, Christmas, New Year and a birthday I’m back!
It’s been hard to motivate myself to blog again but it’s funny how you find inspiration from the most unlikely of places. If you know me then you’ll have probably guessed from the title of the post who might have inspired me… I am of course talking about Professor Green. But this isn’t a Pro Green style post- so don’t click X just yet!
It’s no secret that ‘Just Be Good To Green‘ is one of my fave songs to be released in the Noughties. I listen to it everyday without fail. Pro Green and Wardrobe style icon Lily Allen- course I’m all over it.
But it’s the colour green that inspired me for this post. Now green is a colour that doesn’t feature much in my wardrobe but this season it’s a colour that is everywhere. And you know what, I’m really feeling it!
The different variations of the colour are so eye-catching but I love the emerald green colour in particular. I’m often told I need to generate more colour in my outfits come Spring/Summer as I’m such a ‘dark’ person. I think green is a good colour to mix and match with the darker navy’s and blacks that I already have. It’s also a great colour to work with if you want to get in on the colour blocking trend. Although I personally wouldn’t go head to toe in green with the fear of looking like Kermit the frog. Ribbit.
I also think green is a great colour to incorporate into a working wardrobe to liven it up. I hate picking out work wear, cos I don’t want to look dull or too ‘executive’ but I love this outfit Emma Stone is wearing!
I bought these black trousers from the Miss Selfridge sale the other day for £12, now tempted to buy a green blazer to go with them!
I’ve spotted so many lovely items on the high street this SS12 in the colour green from blazers to bags. No green in my wardrobe? That might just change…
Will you be going green this SS12?
