Keeping Green Glam

In honor of St. Patrick's day I thought I would continue with a post celebrating the color green. Whether celebrating St. Patty's, or just wanting to add a splash of color to an ensemble, jewelry is a perfect way to brighten up your look. With springs list of neutrals, adding some delicately crafted jewels in shades of green will keep with the earthy, neutral look while adding a touch of glam to any outfit.

Jewelry designer Anna Balkan launched her line in 2006 and has already attained red carpet status. Her designs have been featured multiple times in publications including InStyle Magazine, Lucky Magazine and People.

Balkan’s jewelry is composed of the finest natural semi-precious gemstones and pearls from around the world, sterling silver, and 14kt gold fill. Her designs showcase unique color combination's and each piece makes a distinctive fashion statement. Particular attention is paid to the way the colors and textures work together and how the light plays and reflects among the stones.

I can't get enough of her unique designs that are unlike any other designs you can find in stores. Check out her website to view her newest Spring collection, purchase her designs and check out upcoming events.

Green with Envy

St. Patty's day is just around the corner, and before the festivities begin you better make sure that you have your green on. Just because it is a holiday doesn't mean that you have to be so desperate to find green that you wear something you would otherwise never leave the house in.

Avoid looking like a leprechaun this year with these chic green choices:

St. Patty's Day

Eco-friendly clothing: the first word that comes to mind is burlap sack. However, eco-friendly clothing has come a long way. Eco-friendly fashion designers now produce stylish, fashion forward clothing lines that look the same as any other clothing.

What exactly does eco-friendly mean? Eco-friendly means that the clothing is made with organic materials that can be replenished as quickly as they are depleted.


We all need to do our part to help our environment. So when buying basics, such as tee's and tanks, why not buy an eco-friendly version? As you can see though, eco-friendly clothing can be super chic as well!

There are a variety of websites to buy eco-chic clothing. A few of my favorites are:

All Things Green!

With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner I have one thing on my mind - the color green! Typically when I'm trying to find something green for St. Patty's day I have such a hard time, but not this year. I found a variety of fabulous green items that range in price as well as style.

So what does this influx of green mean? It means that green isn't just for St. Patrick's day anymore. Green is definitely a hot color for spring this year, and I love the cheerful addition that it adds to an outfit.

Check out all the great options below!


1. Banana Republic Top 2. Anthropologie Belt 3. Tory Burch Sandals 4. Express Skirt and Top 5. Single Dress 6. Newport News Coat 7. Urban Outfitters Skirt 8. Tracy Reese Dress 9. Karen Kane Shirt 10. Old Navy Cardigan

So, when wearing green what can you match with it??

Green pairs really well with yellow. You can also pair green with navy, white, black or any other neutral shade.

If you are wearing a green skirt look for a shirt with a pattern in it that also pulls in some green. Look for a shirt with a larger pattern that includes white which will not overwhelm the skirt.

Wearing a green top? White shorts, pants or a skirt look FABULOUS with this! You could also pair it with jeans, or black.

When it comes to shoes I am a huge fan of a nude shoe when wearing a bright color like green. A nude pump or sandal will also help make your legs look longer and leaner!
