what i wore {black & white and green all over}

I was looking the other day and somehow I have accumulated at least 4 green dresses in my wardrobe.  its kind of silly.

outfit #1 - I wore this to an engagement party for a favorite couple of me and my husband's.  this dress was a 10$ score at H&M.  at a recent Nordstrom fashion show I fell in love with a this green dress {it really was soooo much cuter on the runway} but with a price tag of 375$ it definitely was not happening.  it has a slight resemblance don't you think?

this was a dress that couldn't be worn with kiddos around.  that would quickly become inappropriate because I could really only raise my hands this much.  but it was perfect for standing around chatting with friends sipping on a great drink {was introduced to a moscow mule, love at first sip} and yummy bites.

I call this the "poddy pose".  right?  you can't even see my shoes but they are these great chocolate brown booties with the slightest platform.

and my earrings - gold chain painted slightly white.  they are strung in a long fringe look.  but its in the details - small delicate gold filagree beads along the top and an asymmetrical wrapped gold-filled wire that was inspired by a belt and buckle.  I have been reaching for them whether I am dressy or more casual.  they give a great modern twist to a classic gold look.  

dress - H&M
belt - Zara.com
tights - H&M {such a wonderful place for great inexpensive tights}
shoes - Me too.

 do you see why I had to be on my best behavior?  the back was a bit risky for me...

outfit #2 - more green, and some stripes.  plus pink lips.  fun?  it might be a little dr. suess-esque but I dig it.  btw - this was the day after the above party.  if my hair is still working, I just let it be.  choose your battles.

you know when you find a basic shirt and love it so much you buy it in multiple colors?  well I had it in 3 colors then to my surprise a year later it showed up in stripes.

can you see my earrings?   I forgot to do a closeup.  I found these great brown coppery fresh water pearls.  they are just a few steps away from goddy.  is that a word?  but with gold filagrees they just kind of sing to me.   especially with my new green theme. 

sweater - H&M
shirt - H&M
jeggings - joe jeans, anthropologie
boots - steve madden {similar}
earrings - Lucia K. jewelry trial run possible holiday addition.
