Not Easy Being Green

When I first embarked on this Wear Green All Weekend Quest I thought to myself: "This will be so easy!" Green is my favorite color so I own a number of green tops and pants that would normally make this a breeze. But upon looking through my stores of clothing I realized that I left all of my green clothes in Ohio! So I had to improvise a little bit:

I wore this to house management on Friday. I bought this peplum top when Whiskey-Pants was here, and with new clothes I either wear them immediately or save them for a special occasion. In this case I wanted to wear it when the sun was shining and it was above 70 degrees.

This was for St. Patrick's Day Adventures with Running Buddy and house management Saturday. St. Patrick's Day morning I realized that my lack of emerald clothing would call for some substitutions and this mint cardigan did the trick.

I wore it last weekend for house management and then changed out of it realizing I needed something more comfortable, but I snapped a picture just the same!

I had to cheat and wear the mint cardigan again for house management on Sunday. I'm guessing this is Mom's favorite outfit because it's the drape-y top she loves so well. Last summer every time we walked in to Aerie we commented on its beauty, but $40 was too much to spend on a top. Finally after a coupon hunt we were ready to buy. Afterwards I convinced Mom that she needed one too seeing as she was so obsessed with it, and so she has a red one just like it.

This one I based on my St Patty's Day Outfit Ideas post, figuring that I had to try and replicate at least one look since the kelly green J Crew shorts are a tad out of my reach. After editing these photo I also realize that I need a better picture situation in terms of lighting, or at the very least I need to make my bed and clean my mirror.

// Top: Old Navy (similar mandarin collar here) / Cardigan: Old Navy (similar crop style here) / Crop Pants: American Eagle / Dream shoes to go with this outfit: American Eagle  //

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them. As I said before I'm only a frustrated stylist and the clothes I own are, of course, all affordable. Which one is your favorite?
