The Bright Side: styling a green mohair sweater with camouflage trousers and black block-heeled pumps

I may be the queen of neutral outfit combos…but if you’re a regular visitor here (and of course you are, right?) you’ll know that doesn’t mean that I absolutely never wear colour!!

When the urge to visit the bright side strikes, one of my go-to’s happens to be Pantone’s current “Colour of the Year”!!  This mohair sweater in “greenery” was part of my fall/winter wardrobe well before the delectable shade made Pantone’s list for 2017…and trust me, it won’t be kicked to the curb just because the year is up. 😉

I opted to do tone-on-tone today by pairing my cozy knit with these army-inspired trousers; then added my fleece-embellished envelope clutch for even more textural interest.  And those gorgeous shoes?!  I’d actually been unsuccessful in my search for pointed toe, block-heeled pumps until I finally enlisted Robin’s help…and then he promptly rustled up these Marc Fishers on our very next foray to Winners!!

So I suppose that “spree” I mentioned on Monday kinda started with the shoes…but Robin has been on a real roll since then, dear readers!!  He’s found me more than a couple of can’t-say-no-to-’em tops in the meantime, too.  Seriously – how lucky am I to have a hubby that’s not just my official blog photographer, but also the ultimate shopping-partner-in-crime?!

    I know what you mean. I love to go shopping with Gerben, because he is always very critical. Fantastic outfit! I love Camo pants.

    I have a husband with impeccable taste in clothes and knows what he likes to see on me, gives honest feedback about what looks, but doesn't want to shop with me. We go to the mall and he wants to split up. I wish he would stay with me more when I shop because I value his opinion (and nudging him for a little financial support doesn't hurt – ha ha). You are lucky you can drag your man into a store with you.

    We all need a bit of color in our lives! I am not seeing enough color in my favorite stores lately and I'm a little sad. When you find something in a color you love, there is no reason to let go just because it's not the color of the year anymore!

    Love that green sweater! And the shoes. I have to say I am a little green with envy, in fact. A) getting my otherwise lovely husband to take pics for me is like pulling teeth, and one reason I've given up on doing my own blog! B) My husband does not begin to understand the art and sport of shopping. Count your blessings, dear Monika!
