Emerald City

Around the holidays, I purchased a new deep green sweater from the Polo RL Factory Store. The salesman and I were chatting about how it’s a shame that this color only seems to be widely available at Christmastime. Wrong we were, at least for this year, because Emerald is Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year!

I’m a little excited to say the least, and can’t wait to continue pairing it with navy– one of my favorite color combos.

    Someone told me recently that they’re making a new 3-D version of the Wizard of Oz. I’m not sure how to feel about it yet, but it seems to go hand in hand with the emerald trend!

    i love this colour trend!
    my mum wore an emerald coloured dress to my brother’s wedding, it was gorgeous.

  23. So cute! I too am excited for emerald this year – I have a sweet emerald dress that can’t wait to be worn, but its more of a summer dress so it might have to wait a few months :P

  24. I love all shades of green – well almost. I’m with you and definitely digging this color. I just did a new batch of necklaces the other day in an emerald green.

  25. I want that shirt for my closet! So freaking cute!
