Yes, I used to live in Ireland. And I’m married to an Irish citizen. And I don’t own a STITCH of green clothing!
But one of you has been very tempted by this classic cardigan in this very lovely color:
I was specifically asked about wearing this with beige, so I was able to avoid trying to find camel clothing at this “almost spring” point. Hallelujah for that!
You can see that the olive is going to be an interesting issue…
Are we all convinced that owning a simple white shirt and classic jeans is a good idea?
This was a specific question, and I personally think that this color looks lovely with beige. The earrings and scarf are sort of perfect with this, I think.
And the bag is quite a few shades lighter than the cardigan, but I don’t see that as a problem!
I was hesitant about black until I found the scarf and earrings. I really tried to find a blouse or tee shirt that included these 2 colors in either a floral or striped motif, to no avail. But if someone owned this sweater, she would of course keep an eye open for such a thing.
This next outfit… I don’t know. What do you think?
The more I look at it, the more I’m not quite positive that this paisley shirt is the same color as the cardigan. And the more I look at it, the more I’m convinced that it doesn’t matter!
And who wouldn’t want paisley earrings to wear with a paisley shirt?
This shade of green with white is obvious… And the sandals are just right!
Ah… these pumps are such a great partner with this sweater… I could see this outfit on a beautiful spring day!
Choosing a new accent color to try in your wardrobe is never easy; for me, finding 2 or 3 accessories that tie the new color into your existing clothes helps a lot!
p.s. Four years ago, the art was by Henri Rousseau, and the wardrobe was black and cream, accented with almost the same shade of green as we used above!
