Olive and emerald with rainbow stripes











So I have finally managed it: I am in time for Everybody Everywear this month... third time lucky!

This month it's Green with Envy, and it would just so happen that I've worn green twice in my last four outfit posts - what are the chances? However, not one to pass up the challenge of yet more green without repeating any of the previously worn items, I set to creating an outfit without making any new purchases. Which I sort of managed - I only bought a couple of new accessories with the green theme in mind...! Everything is reasonably old except the shoes (bought them a few weeks ago in the sales), and my two green purchases: the somewhat on-trend round Urban Outfitters sunglasses and a fabulous green handmade ring.

I bought the ring from the vintage fair in Exeter that's held every few months (went to my first one in November when I bought my vintage Lacroix blazer) from the rather fabulous Aloha Lounge Designs; I think it's made from buttons. And yes, green nails too - my fave new nail colour. Though I guarantee you it'll be a different favourite colour before long as I bought a few new polishes I'll share with you soon.

So I actually went into shops this weekend and did some real-life shopping, rather than getting everything online. It's been a while ;)

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and has a good week :))

  1. I would have never thought to put olive and emerald together - you combine colors so well!
    That ring is fantastic, by the way.

    1. Adrienne these colour combos usually happen by accident - normally I match styles together that will create the right silhouette, never mind what colour they are...! I'll only choose, say, a different jacket if the colour really doesn't look right! Thank you sweetie xoxo

  3. Love this outfit. Your nails are lovely too. The shoes are fab! That is a wonderful ring. I don't like large rings on my hands, they just seem to get in the way. You carry it off perfectly though!
