I swear, that cardigan is green.
And so is the top.
But once again, the lighting and photography gods are conspiring against me and no matter how much I play with the filters and the balance on Photoshop, it’s just not showing up as vividly as it does in real life so you’re gonna have to trust me on this one.
It’s unfortunate, because this happens to be my own true tree outfit this week. My one outfit inspired by a true traditional tree, that is. Not that the previous examples were lesser trees than this; this one just happens to have your typical foliage, is all.
And this top is the only one of the week that is truly derivative of greenery, having both color and print be reminiscent of said challenge. I happen to have found it on eBay when I was Mad Hunting for at least one item from each of the Target/designer partnerships. This one, from Liberty of London, and a Missoni top were my most recent acquisitions. Funny how they hadn’t appealed to me when they were first introduced. Yet another example how I’m always late to the trend party, I suppose.
I like how the acid green of the cardi concurrently complements and highlights the various colors of the top. This is why I’ve become a firm believer in printed/patterned things – there’s so much more visual diversity that can be had from such items. And as long as you pair it with a neutral, like I did with the taupe skirt, then you can look in-the-know and on-trend rather than color blind and woefully clueless.
Or so I tell meself.
