Green Love Affair

It all started with this picture I pinned a few weeks ago.  I became convinced I needed a pair of hunter green jeans,  so my search began.  I didn't want to spend alot of money but I wanted the pants to be a good fit at the same time.


Low and behold I found the perfect pair at Forever 21.  They are not jeans, more of a cotton blend pant but they are so so comfortable and cute on!  They sit higher on your waist and really kind of suck you in.  I do recommend ordering a size up from what you normally wear because they are pretty fitted.  I ended up with a Medium.  I plan to pair mine with a loose white blouse and knee high boots or TB flats.  They seriously feel like you are wearing pajamas.
So the pants got me started on a green love affair and the more I looked,  the more I realized it is hard to find clothes in Hunter or Emerald Green.  I think those are the two shades of green that are most flattering on everybody.  Why don't more people make stuff in those two colors? 
I rounded up a few of my favorites:


So tell me do you love this shade of green as much as I do?  I am on the hunt for some more pieces but trust me on the pants they are worth the $19!
Have a great weekend!
xoxo

I was in F21 yesterday looking for the Pardon My French sweater, now I have to go back for those pants.. and that store gives me a headache, I feel like I am shopping for clothes in a night club. Our F21 is massive, the lights are turned down low, and the music is pumping, and there is always at least 100 people in that sore:)

I love green too! It is so flattering and you can pair it with so many colors! I think I may need to order these pants!

Sad I didnt get the chance to chat with you last night at the Anthro opening party. I grabbed Chassity for a minute. But, didnt want to interrupt you. Next time :)

I heart green, too! Funny enough, tomorrow night we have a black tie charity ball and the theme is: "The Emerald City" - as in, The Wizard of Oz. It's the oldest costume ball in Miami, but you don't have to dress in costume. You can just go in black tie attire. Sooooo I was on the hunt for a green gown and finally found it (after a long search) @ Nordstrom. Looooovvvveee the color...emerald green! :)

Emerald green is my absoloute favorite clothing color! I got a great pair of Paige skinnies in emerald green on sale the end of summer. Also recently found a silk top at a Kate Spade outlet. Slowly but surely half my wardrobe is being taken over by emerald :) You have me thinking about a hunter green jeans hunt now though...

Hope you have a great weekend!

I never really have ever bought anything in that color, but this year I have been seeing it more and more and it is really flattering! I agree, I think anyone can pull off that color.

I love that Rachel Zoe blouse!!! I saw some wax green jeans at the 7 for All Mankind Store in Vegas. They were amazing. I'm so jealous of your ability to create the scrolling features. We need a blog tutorial STAT!!! Have a great weekend! p.s. I need the scoop on Anthro!

I pinned that picture too....obsessed with this color for fall. Thanks for the tip on F21.

I got this great emerald green sweater at Nordstrom you may like...so comfy and goes perfectly with skinnies and boots. Runs big though...I'm normally a small and got an xs.

Have a great weekend!

I love that color green. I bought a pair of Joe's jeans in green last fall and I've worn them to death. I'm wearing them right now! lol

That green looks really good on blonds with green eyes. :-)

I went to F21 yesterday and I couldn't even fit into the Large sized tops. It made me feel like a linebacker. I might not be going back any time soon. :-/

I'm dying over the fabulous color of that Rachel Zoe tie neck blouse...so perfect! And I'm positive that I will most definitely die if I don't get at least that gorgeous necklace from the new J Crew line. Like 99.9% positive (c;

I love green too. Recently had a similar obsession with finding maroon skinnies! I'd love a fancy green top for our family Christmas photos this year. Any tips on holiday dressing for photos? This is our first year with the baby and I want to make it special!

Boo I waited too long to get the gorgeous F21 Green Pants :( Maybe I'll get lucky and find them in the store tomorrow. Love them so so much! Have you found any other Hunter Green items I might need? Thinking that color blouse would be per-fect for my Holiday Party this year! I'm liking this guy but wishing the sleeves rolled up http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=5039&vid=1&pid=231991022
