Go Green

Hello, my friends!

I’m having a great year so far!  How about you?  A song just popped in my head….”We’ve Only Just Begun…” remember the Carpenters?  Some of you? 😀

Soooo, while tangerine was the color of 2012, I hear emerald green is the color of the year for 2013!… according to Pantone LLC.

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”  ~ PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald

Okay, I’m on the wagon!  One of my favorite jackets ~ not exactly emerald green but green nonetheless.








Jacket & sweater: BCBGMaxAzria   Jeans: 7 for All Mankind   Scarf: Burberry   Boots: Donald  J Pliner   Bag: LV

Are you on board?

  1. First of all, I love everything about your outfit! Perfect for winter, casual but glamorous. Just perfect! As for emerald, I really like the color and have a couple Kelly green pieces, but whether or not I get any more emerald remains to be seen.

    • Thank you, Heather!
      I’m lacking green in my closet, too. I can’t wait to see what will be avail. for spring.
      I’m also excited about b&w trend for spring – now that, I have! 🙂

  2. I absolutely love green, it’s always been my favorite colour so I am glad it’s going to be finally making it’s round to the colour of the season. What a gorgeous bridge in Japan and I’ve always dreamed of owning a white pure bred arabian horse.

  3. I’m thrilled to hear that emerald green is the color for 2013, it’s such a beauty. But for winter your olive green is perfect, especially how you assembled the entire outfit. And those boots! LOVE them.

  4. Hi Jeannie!! Sorry I haven’t been in touch! Hope your holiday season was joyous. I love the colors and textures in this outfit. You look classy, glamorously-casually chic!! Joey’s not performing locally for awhile, but I’ll definitely keep you informed! Thank you for mentioning it 🙂

  5. Beautiful colors in the scarf/jacket/boots. This is a great look. One of my faves.
    I’m glad your year is starting out on a good note. I know some may think The Carpenters are cheesy, but I’ve always loved their music and just can’t help singing along when I hear it. (I like John Denver songs too. shhhh…) : ]

    • Thanks, Lisa!
      The Carpenters are NOT cheesy! I love their songs! I like John Denver, too! How about Captain & Tennille? “Love, Love Will Keep Us Together…”, “Do That To Me One More Time….” Haha! I’m singing it now! 😆

  6. OMG that jacket is just too much
    The rufflely edges, those fabulous cuffs
    I see why you love it so much
    And the boots too…..
    You are just too hip and cool today!

    • Thanks, Tamera! This is about as bold as I get with pattern mixing. 😀
      I can’t wait to see the shades of green that we’ll be seeing around the fashion world this year. Emerald green is so lush! It should be fun!

  7. Who wears olive green better than you? NOBODY! Not a color I think of as girly, but you make it absolutely feminine.
    Beyond gorgeous photos … thank you so much for sharing. Can’t wait to see what you get up to in 2013!

  8. I’m definitely on board. I love emerald, teal, turquoise every shade of it.
    Your jacket with the ruffles is beautiful, especially the ruffles! You look fabulous as you always do, Jeannie!

  9. Yes, i remember that song! Seems like “only yesterday” when it was a hit! i think you will look fabulous in emerald green — but that color on the jacket looks pretty awesome, too! Oh, and the boots… Those boots! Zoicks!

    • Haha, Zoicks?
      Isn’t it pretty crazy how old we are? Seriously! That song was a hit in the 70’s!!!
      I have nothing in emerald green…..except for a ring. Will have to see what’s out there. Gotta follow the trend, right? Nah, just kidding. I’m assuming we’ll be seeing a lot of green this year.

  10. We’ve Only Just Begun was my senior song in high school…ah, memories!! I love this jacket so much…would love to find one just like it! You look great, but you always look great. My 2013 has been a bit stressful so far…looks like a year that will need much prayer!

    • It’s a great song, isn’t it?
      You’ve been very busy with so much happening in your life. I hope things will settle down soon.
      Sending prayers your way, Pam.
      Have a fabulous week!

    • Well, I’m not surprised that you love green!
      You give me too much credit, but thank you!
      I don’t have many “green” in my closet, but I’m excited to see what’s available.
      Have a fabulous week!

  11. Your new bag is settling right in and it looks gorgeous! Tell hubby that his photography continues to knock me out. Well done! Love the way you’ve done green. Another inspiring outfit. 🙂

  12. Jeannie….I always enjoy the positive messages and images you do at the end of your post. All of those images are certainly very beautiful.
    I can see why that jacket is one of your favorite items; its pretty awesome. Your boots……I almost screamed when I saw them. OK…well, maybe didn’t almost scream, but wanted to……..they’re divine. You have such great taste.

  13. Beautiful outfit. I’m not much of a emerald person but what the heck! If I jump on the wagon now it’ll take two years to be popular in Indiana so I’ll get a lot of wear out of it! Your email was lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Lovely photographs, great outfit. And,as you know, green is my favorite color! Vancouver has been on my Bucket List of places to visit for years. 2013 might just be the one!

    Happy New Year – and keep on creating those amazing posts!


  15. Hi dear,
    My turn to wish you a Happy New Year! I hope you have had a fantastic Holiday time with your family!
    ……. So good to be back to the world of blogging after a crazy month of hosting company, cooking and chatting late in the evening…. You know what I mean.
    You look fabulous with your green jacket and your lovely scarf. Always stylish and trendy: you are fantastic!
    Sorry. I won’t be on board with you. Dark green makes me look sick as if my skin was turning green too (LOL).
    Have a lovely day 🙂

    PS 1. I do remember the Carpenters…… Feeling suddenly old 😦
    PS 2. About the most beautiful horse in the world: no doubt, it is the Arabian!
    PS 3. You should try the turban again – with your hair up. I am sure you would look fantastic!

    • Hi Anne!
      Glad to see you back!
      I highly doubt you look sick in green. Nah…
      I will play with it some more….this time with my hair up. Thanks for the advice, although, I’m still gonna look stupid. 😉

  16. Wow, this post was a visual delight. Vancouver IS amazing, and I agree, middle eastern people do have the most beautiful eyes. And I’m thrilled to report that I just bought a pair of Tory Burch jeans (on sale) in bright emerald green!! Now that I have them, I’m feeling the challenge of what the heck to wear with them, but I do love them. Black sweater, black boots, ho hum, but it will work. Love your outfit, especially the boots…well, especially everything!

    Happy First Week, Jeannie!

  17. GORGEOUS photos! The waterfall, the little girls eyes .. so much beauty;) I’m on-board with the greens .. I better get shopping! Great jacket!
