Green is a top notch color. The color of 'go', Yoshi, Ninja Turtles, Kermit,Green Lantern, Starbucks...okay I got distracted! Its one of my favorite colors but I don't wear it enough! Every time I do wear it though I fall in love with it tenfold. There is a superstition that sewing with green thread on the eve of a fashion show brings bad luck to the design house. Interesting stuff, hey? That's my little tid-bit of information for you this Saturday!

Are you having a good weekend? The weekend always comes and then I cross my fingers that clocks will stop ticking...but my wish has not yet come true. Maybe next weekend? ;) Tonight I am enjoying a night in with a home cooked meal, action movie, smarties ice cream and a nice long bubble bath. Ah, perfection! Hope you have a great rest of your night! xo

  4. Your Aldo purse is magic! I like that tassel detail. I just got a snooker green work top from Zara and wearing it at the office got a lot of comments. Greens a great colour but here, only St Patricks day really brings it out in full force. You look adorable as always. I love the matte haziness of these pictures.

  22. Aw love this look and you suit that shade of green. I never wear green enough either, there's not enough green coloured items in shops. Also sounds like a lovely evening you have planned. I'm going to try make a Japanese dish called Chicken Tama Rice for dinner and then watch some Mad Men :) xxx

  24. Ah Kate! Green is my favorite color! And you I love that you made it the main focus of this outfit! I never realized that all those great things were green until you mentioned them...man green is so great (not biased at all..hehe) I wonder why they picked a green thread to be bad luck? Oh well. I'm also loving those tights. You.Have.The.Best.Tights.

  25. yay green is the best! And the reason I love it is mostly because all of the reasons that you like it. Starbucks, yoshi, Ninja Turtles? Awesome. However... you forgot to mention that it's also the color of the Koopas (turtles from mario) which are my favorite characters. Anywayy, you're gorgeous and I love your hair with this shade. And those tights are amazing!

    and what? Smarties Ice cream?? =O <3
