I’ve been hearing lately that Emerald green is the “color of the year” — whatever that means…Anyway, I have to just say, I’ve always loved Emerald/pine green. It is such a rich, saturated color and perfect with gold accessories (which you know I love). I rarely see clothes in that perfect saturated green shade though. However, just a couple days ago I went to the Banana Republic site for some reason, despite not having thoroughly browsed in a while. On the homepage was a model wearing the most beautiful green blouse with this stunningly simple, long gold pendant necklace. Kind of horsebit-icon-ish, which reminded me of Gucci. The blouse had the perfect shade of green, perfect casual/loose/effortless fit, and the gold necklace matched so well with it. I was so in love yet immediately disappointed to find that color had sold out in all sizes. I dragged myself down to the local Banana Republic store and asked around — the color was sold out everywhere. I resigned myself to constantly checking the site to see if any randomly pop up in my size. Luckily, I snagged one yesterday! The normal stock photo below really doesn’t do it justice.
The Navy is currently on sale for $59.99. If the Pine Green comes and is as amazing as I think it’ll be, I’m definitely ordering this in all the colors (white, navy, black). I think they’d all look great with the gold pendant necklace below. Get it here from Banana Republic for $79.99.
Love this outfit. It feels so high end and somehow very Hermes. The graphic print on this top is very rich and quite flattering, prone to hide any bumps. Great looking drape and perfect tucked in or belted. Paired with a white skirt or white jeans/pants, add a pop of color via orange leather belt, and it’s an inherently very high-end look. I love it and will be on the hunt for the perfect skinny orange pebble leather belt to complete this outfit! Get it here from Banana Republic for only $49.50.
