my garden in green green outfit
June 1, 2016

What do you see in the picture? GREEN!

I see this as I sit on the couch, everything is so beautiful green, so bright. Green inspired me to this outfit.

If I ever wore a color it was green. But last week I bought a blue skirt and a red top and skirt, so in terms of color everything is going to be okay with me! For a couple of years ago you saw very little green in spring collections, but for the last few years you see it more often. Now ofcourse you see a lot of army green but also very bright colors, like my trees! I must always be careful with bright green because if it is a bit of a cool color, I can’t wear it in my face. Cool colors give me a huge tired look.

What is better for you, warm or cool tones? Click To Tweet

I never wear cool colors, not in clothing, not in my haircolor, not in make-up. I also do not wear silver jewelry as it is a cool metal. If you do not know if you’re a warm or a cool type, it’s very nice to look in your area for someone who does color analysis. It ‘s surprising what color can do for your face!

What am I wearing?

A green wrap dress of which the back is longer than the front. A cardigan with the same model, even longer at the back. A thin black strap buttoned. Beaded necklace worn as a bracelet, with a black string bracelet underneat, from the colorful lady at Brighton Beach. Green earrings and I see that my nail polish chipped! Bummer!

Dress: old but I also like this one here

Boots: old but these are nice too here

  1. How cute! The diagonal lines of the design create energy, making this a vibrant outfit. Very attractive. And you wear it better than I could. (*sob*) 🙂

  2. Ik zei het al op Instagram, wat een prachtige jurk ! 🙂 Ik vind het leuk dat je regelmatig andere kleurtjes laat zien dan het geijkte, dit is echt een hele mooie kleur die je goed staat !

    1. Dankjewel, dat vind ik leuk om te horen. Ik moet zeggen dat ik door het bloggen meer kleur ben ga dragen. Eerder was het erg veel zwart, daar ben ik nog wel gek op hoor 🙂

  3. Nancy, I love the green wrap dress and how you layered it with black, it really makes the green pop. I also love the first photo, i love summer colors, green and blue!
    I wear both warm and cool shades since my skin tone is neutral I feel with the right lipstick I can wear both!
    I love this season Gucci collection and their deep green laces!

  4. Interesting, and this is actually a cool shade of green you’re wearing (= it is more green-blue than green-yellow). And it looks fantastic on you. So, you can wear cool shades, too.
    I wear both cool and warm colours, and both gold and silver. I usually look better in cool colours, but I always wear the warmer shades of colours such as blue or purple, and the cooler shades of red, green and orange. So, it’s more about the shade of colour than the colour itself.

    1. Yes, you are right about the shade of color. Because I had a top that was just a bit brighter then this dress and I look sick wearing it. It comes very close with me!

          1. Oh oké, nee dat mag je wel veranderen. Ik wilde iets met mijn naam en met Fashion. En dat het duidelijk was dat ik mijn eigen stijl en niet perse wat er in de mode is, laat zien.

  5. I also tend to go for warm tones, I try my best to go to the other side (and wear sliver)… lets just say I suck at that. This dress is doing wonders for you!
    Thank you for linking up with Weekend Wear, have a great weekend
