Green on Green






I know this looks like a Starbucks ad but I promise it's not. We'd just gone for a wander around Hove and I was gasping for a coffee and it was the closest place. I do generally try and avoid Starbz these days as the coffee is legit terrible and so over priced for what it is. None the less, sometimes you have to go full "basic white girl" and cave.

Im really digging green/khaki at the moment. Im not really sure where this has come from but it's a colour I keep being constantly drawn to when Im shopping or looking for clothes online. Maybe it's the fact the colour theme for my desk is green and I spend 90% of my time staring at the hue that it's imprinted itself on my brain. I love the way it looks with my hair colour and skintone - It's just super flattering. The dress Im wearing in these shots is really flattering and easy to wear, but it is a little bit on the long side for my personal taste so I think Im going to have to get my sewing kit out and do a little DIY job on the hemline!

  5. LOVE all the different shades. The dress is especially gorgeous.
    I always veer towards green if I want colour now, due to my red hair and its just perfect, especially at this time of yr.

  6. Haha completely agree with you about starbz, the coffee is so weak and lukewarm but they're literally everywhere so sometimes you've got to cave. Green/khaki is one of my favourite hues at the moment, it's so autumnal and flattering.

  11. I would never have thought to style that rich emerald green dress with the darker khaki, yet it works so well. I think you could pull anything off though (just saying!).

    Ah, there's something about Starbucks that makes me keep going back for more. We don't have it here in my home city and I don't think we ever will since the chain has failed miserably in Australia. I only ever have it when we're overseas, and I don't get coffee, just a chai latte (almost no fail, hahah). Thank goodness for good coffee!

  23. Khaki as long been a favorite of mine (even when all the magazines were putting in the Don't category...beyond me!!), and I think you look fantastic! I'm envious that you know your way around a sewing machine long enough to take the hem up on this: I'm under 4ft 11 and so it's definitely a skill I could do with learning! ;)

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.
