    Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green

    Green is my favorite color as many of you who regularly follow me on here already know. With the start of spring, we’re starting to see a lot more green so last week’s photo challenge “It IS Easy Being Green” seemed timely. I really wanted to use Easter basket grass, but I didn’t get to go to the store and I haven’t made an Easter basket since I was a kid so… Instead, I took a few green photos around the house this week and I’m also including 2 old photos into this collage.

    Green & Gold

    For years, I shied away from yellow gold and preferred white gold heaps more than yellow. In recent years, while I still love the seamless, classy look of white gold, I’ve begun to really like yellow gold. Yellow gold is perfect for the holiday season with it’s bright shine and it looks so festive. For Christmas yesterday, I wore a bright green cashmere sweater that I got for Christmas. So soft! Uniqlo jeggings that I already owned, off-white boot socks with gold threads and black boots. (Sorry the 2nd photo is a little blurry! I kept it though because I liked the mirror effect) Top: Charter Club via Macy’s (Christmas gift)…
