Green is an okay color.

I have to admit, I've always shyed away from green (except if it was on an Oakland A's t shirt). So I decided to take a chance on J Crew's warm jade and order a Jackie sweater during their last sale. And during one of my sleepless nights this dawned on me and I decided to try it out... and it worked. (And why didn't I try this sooner?)

Jeweled collared shirt: H&M, Jackie sweater: J Crew, Jeans: Banana Republic

Whodathunk that I can look okay in green? The majority of the time I've shimmied away from the color because it tends to wash me out, or look like I'm no longer breathing. But... I think I love this color. Yes warm jade, you will do.

Not much else is going on but our wedding day countdown is 11 DAYS! So crazy to say that I'll be getting married NEXT WEEK!

I've been doing some DIY and will share with you once the bridesmaids have their gifts. ;)

And in case you haven't looked at Old Navy lately, you really should. I'll be planning a post of what I've gotten of theirs lately with their 25% off promo code.

Hope you are having a great week so far!


  1. Hand clap for your big wedding countdown, yay!

    And you def look great in green, you need to wear it more often!

  2. I love the green with the collar! So cute! What a perfect combination.

    I can't wait to see your finds from Old Navy. I bought some things there last week. Old Navy has a lot of similar styles to J. Crew this year, not that I am complaining!

  3. ^katie, I agree. And the prices are much easier on the wallet!

  4. i think that color is GORGEOUS on you laura!!! it's such a rich pretty jewel tone you look fabulous!
