Winter in Forest Green

2:54 PM






Who says being colorful is only for spring or summer? Not me, that's for sure! 
That's why I love my plaids, and why I love forest green. Some colors don't quite fit the winter scene, but forest green fits it beautifully, and has become my favorite color for this season. It's a bold color, just bright enough to stand out, but still toned down and subdued, making it a sophisticated color choice in my opinion. 
Today I paired a forest green cardigan with my favorite skirt for fall and winter that is also rather colorful! The brighter navy, red, yellow and green plaid pairs perfectly with the forest green cardigan. As well as our Hampton Ivy classic plaid cuff with all the colors to match, and our Hampton Ivy gold chain link bracelet with forest green beads and little horseshoe charms. For the rest of my outfit, my blouse, shoes, and purse, I kept to neutrals and toned down colors.
So if you're looking to add some color into your outfit, while staying seasonally appropriate, forest green is a wonderful choice, and of course so is plaid. Plaid is always a wonderful choice!
