Bright Green and Camel with a Splash of Navy.

This is a casual way to wear green - lots of green - around the Holidays or during December. In case you are counting I have my Bright Green Sweater (embroidered with red roses), plus at least 2 (maybe 3) shades of green on my Geometric-Print LuLaRoe Leggings, as well as the Minty Green Ombre Earrings by Sugarfix from Bauble Bar and last but not least the leaves on the floral pattern of my Sunglasses are in a dark forest green. All of this green looked great with the camel and the navy. I will remember to try this color trio again.

This outfit is about mixing old (actually most of these items are old) with new pieces. I don't know when the embroidered florals came into fashion - I want to say this year - but this sweater was purchased in Albania in Fall of 2014, which is like 3.5 years ago. The Ruched Faux Suede Boots are from Charlotte Russe, at least 7 or 8 years old. The Floral Wayfarer Style Sunglasses are also from Albania, from Summer 2014. The Patterned Rainbow Leggings which I love (and Vivian has the matching pair too), I have had for a year and a half. The Mint Tassel Earrings were purchased this Spring - they are by the Sugarfix line which is Bauble Bar's collaboration with Target so they are fairly new. About a year ago I purchased the Black Tassel Choker, also at Target and last but not least the star of this outfit - which is The Gorgeous Camel Vest - was purchased about a year ago and I have worn a few times but have yet to blog. The Lovely Nora from Jacket Society who designed it, came up with more great neutral colors in this vest. It now comes in Putty which is like a dusty grey with a beige undertone, or what I'd call taupe; Cream which would be perfect for the Holiday season; Mocha and Pale Pink. But the first one that Nora made was the camel one which I own and it is such a pretty and well-made acrylic vest. It is one size fits all but I love the cape style with the rounded collar that it creates. If I buy a second one it will be the cream or pale pink one.

Later this week on the blog, I will show you a dressy way on how to wear Bright Green this month and to be festive for December and stay tuned on Thursday December 7th for my Holiday Home Tour which will be a blog hop among a few bloggers. You don't want to miss my Home Tour post. I look forward to decorating each year and every area in our house is decked this year.
