Going Green

Green has to be my favorite color.  The minty light green color of this cardigan is so pretty to me.  I also love how it looks with my red hair.  So, as you can guess, I really love this outfit.  I knew I wanted to wear this skirt today, but when I was looking for a top in my closet I kept gravitating toward a dark gray top.  Not very IKC if you ask me, so I pulled out this little number.  Sometimes I have to force myself into wearing brighter colors, and I'm always glad I do.
Top: Macy's
Cardigan: Nordstrom
Skirt: LOFT
Shoes: bebe
Glasses: borrowed from my sis


I have to admit, these are not the type of sunglasses I typically like to wear.  The bug look is one that I find doesn't really look good on anyone.  I am the type of girl who won't spend more than 15 bucks on shades because I break them, lose them, scratch them all relatively quickly.  Last summer, I was in a pinch because I was out at the lake and forgot to bring sunglasses so I had to borrow these.  I just never returned them (sorry Rachel)!

I've been loving green lately, too! Your outfit looks so polished, and I think the glasses look great with it! Lovely selections!

First of all, that skirt is killa! I love it so much. The stripe design on it is so different and extra flattering! And I'm SO glad you pulled the green out of your closet. The bright against the black and white looks really springy, but so crisp!

I think green loves you back! The lines on that skirt are heavenly and I like that the black detail on the shirt ties in with the skirt.

I agree about not spending much on shades. I think you actually look cute in those though. I also think you have some of the cutest skirts ever!
Cheers,
