Spring Green

Good morning! A bright and beautiful day here today has me itching to get out and plant my containers but I think I will wait a couple more weeks as it is supposed to get cold again this weekend.

Tory Burch Spring Collection

I asked last week what your favorite classic wardrobe pieces were and that led to me thinking about how my own wardrobe has changed a little as I age. In the past I liked to wear a lot of black but in the last few years I like to add a little color and one of my favorites has been green! Not an entire outfit but maybe a totesandal, pants, or a sweater paired with something white or maybe even blue. 

Do you find that you have added less or more color to your wardrobe lately? Are you a fan of green or do you prefer another color to brighten your wardrobe? In the summer I also love fuchsia pink and orange, sometimes I even wear this combination together.

This pink and green print from Tory Burch is fresh and elegant and has all of my favorite Spring/Summer colors and has me dreaming of warmer days to come.

Have a great day!



  1. Last spring, I saw a woman in Carcassonne in head-to-toe green. Bright, Kelly green, as you show here. A top with a green print, a green cardigan, matching green jeans/trousers and, if I recall, green shoes and bag. She pulled it off as if it were black. And why not? She looked fabulous.

  2. I love this color!! I saw it on a kitchen island yesterday. :)

  3. I don't expect winter to be really done and over until month's end.

  4. Yes! Lots of waiting for weather in spring. I have also made black my wardrobe foundation, and green is my next favorite color. But I like an olive green best. I do try more color now and then, but it never seems to feel right! Nice to have a word from you about my slog through stuff! Misery loves company. Haha!

  5. I love all your choices, Elizabeth. I love the color green. Enjoy your day.

  6. Nothing worth mentioning HERE about my week except BANKSY the TEA CUP piggy got stuck between the jaccuzzi and the fence!His screams were HORRIFIC!!!!!!!!!!!He suffered 5 wounds.............cuts to his legs to be MORE SPECIFIC!ALL GOOD now after a day of remaining inside under the kitchen table!.
