Good to be (in) Green

19 Jan

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!

Primark SS12: A green shirt dress £17

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!

Black belted peg leg trousers @ Miss Selfridge was £38.00 NOW £12.00

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…

Mini stripe bodycon skirt @ Topshop £25.00

Split neck maxi dress @ Topshop £50.00

Green collar skater dress @ Miss Selfridge £42.00

Green wedge court shoes @ Dorothy Perkins £40.00

Leopard collar 60s coat @ ASOS was £90.00 NOW £45.00

Ewa tailored skater dress @ £14.99

Green quilted cross body bag @ Dorothy Perkins £20.00

Love Label drape blazer @ £35.00

Tapered turn up trousers @ Matalan £14.00

MOTO Leigh supersoft skinny jeans @ Topshop £38.00

 Will you be going green this SS12?

    I’ve awarded you the versatile blogger award!! I’ve only just started reading the blog but looking forward to keeping up with your gorgeous posts. I think I need to get me that green coat, so wrong yet so right with that clashing collar.

      Aaw thanks for the award! I think that might be our first too :) Yeah there’s something about that coat! I normally see Navy & Leopard print collars but I strangely liked that…

    I do love green but i’m not sure those shades would suit me! I quite like the outfit jessica alba has on but then again she looks good in anything! Great post x
