Daily Outfit: A touch of green

One of the simplest outfit techniques is to create an outfit of primarily neutrals with a few pops of color.  For this outfit, I made various shades of green the accent color, with my ever versatile lime green purse and a seafoam tank peaking out from under the blouse.  I normally don’t like how these two shades of green look together, but since only a little of the seafoam shows, I think it works here.

I know I’ve talked about these pants before and bashed them for being poly-blend, but I have to say, they have become one of my style essentials.  I love their gray textured color, the comfortable and flattering wide leg style and the fact that they’re lined.  The dry-clean aspect does annoy me a bit, but I’ve come to accept that as I add more to my work wardrobe (especially silk), visiting the dry cleaners will just become a part of life.  I just have to make it a regular routine and find a green dry cleaner that I like.

    So agree. I was deeply annoyed when I realized that maintaining a work wardrobe meant regular dry cleaning. Dryel works wonders for some stuff, if you haven’t tried it yet …
