Yo, you got some green….ery? Earlier this year (aka 7 months ago, because July, already??!), Pantone announced that the color of the year was “Greenery” which was supposed to represent nature and calm in it’s greenish yellow hues. Yup, that’s exactly what green does. Basically, Pantone decided the world v mucho needed this post-election scandal 2016.
I have to admit, I do love me some greenery! Like real greenery aka trees. My view from my office window (which is my bedroom window and also my living room window because studio living) is of Hermann Park and, even on my worst of days, the tree tops and all the green makes me so happy and centered. But then when I wear it, I just feel like St. Patrick threw up all over me. As for the greenery makeup? Army Green – sure. Olive – hell yes! But greenery eye shadow or lipstick? Um. Pass.
So I’ve been a bit hands off with the shade unless the vegetation counts (and truth be told, I’m still totally in love with Marsala from 2015 – somebody upgrade my life). However, as summer rolls around there are some greenery elements that I am starting to fall for. It’s popping up everywhere and I can’t help but admire how perfectly this bright color works in the long summer days. I’ve dug up some of my favorite greeneries that I can’t wait to add to my home and wardrobe (the jewelz totes the cutest of them all)! Your closet may be looking a bit brighter than it did just a month or two ago, but really, does anything feel as good than switching things up every now and then? #MakeYourClosetGreatAgain
Please hold while I go pay for this with all my green. Think green because it’s always greener where you water it #duh. Peace, love, green eggs and ham.
I’m clearly done here,
