Weekly Whistle: Emerald n’ Gold

IMG_1553

Last week on Weekly Whistle, I chatted about how rust and emerald have always been my color sweethearts. If you missed the post, check it out here–you don’t want to be behind *wink* 

Taking a little bit of inspiration from last week’s throwbacks + a fabulous necklace I just finished making, I decided this week’s outfit of the week should be all about gold and emerald! Oh…there is just something about how emerald pairs so elegantly with rich hues like rust and different metallics. I remember several years ago, I had this fabulous emerald dress, and I wore it with practically with everything under the sun *wink* Hm…I wonder where that post is on the blog? *stalking myself* HERE WE GO!

Ahh–this brings back sweet memories! This was when I was living in Birmingham and working with the Outlet Shops of Grand River for events and the Grand Haul Girl video series! Check out the post here.

Seeing this dress again makes me feel like I might have to dust it off for some future closet-shopping blogs, but I digress *wink*

Let’s get back to this week’s Weekly Whistle *wink* Check it out below:

  • MIX IT UP: Mixing patterns is a spectacular way to step up an outfit! Floral and polka dots play well together and give off a fun and spunky vibe!
  • WATERFALL OF PEARLS: Do not be afraid to layer different length pearl necklaces! Doing this will create a chic statement that is perfect for any vintage inspired ensemble! Pearls are like neutral heels, they go with everything!

  • PLAY IT UP: A flowy floral skirt does not always have to be dressy! Play it down with a fun graphic sweatshirt and vibrant hue knee high socks for a exciting and comfortable look!
