Getting Gutsy with Emerald Jeans

Yet another Playing with Polyvore Pop Jeans feature – this time with my Emerald Jeans. I bought these last year when Emerald was the Pantone color of the year, and just never really got around to wearing them. After playing around a bit on Polyvore, I feel really silly for neglecting them, because of all my color pop jeans, I feel like these work with color blocking the best! So many outfits I could have worn! I could have actually been on trend for the first time in my life!

Ah, C’est la vie… I guess I’ll just have to rock them this year instead. Better late than never I guess. Although, that may not be the smartest thing to say about fashion… fairly sure I’ll never wear that popcorn shirt again – 2002 can keep those forever as far as I’m concerned.

I’m starting to feel more confident about my sense of style as I put together more of these sets – I’m really hoping it starts showing in my actual wardrobe choices this year. As always, I stuck with pieces that are similar to things I have (yes, I have an emerald and blue purse – though mine’s tartan, not color blocked… what can I say: I have a pretty big purse and shoe problem). I think my favorite is a tie between the blue and green set, and the one with the rabbit sweater (which will be my gift to myself come next paycheck).

What’s your favorite?

  1. hahhaha that popcorn shirt! I’ve noticed a big difference in my outfit creations since I’ve started playing around on polyvore and in pinterest. I feel like the more time I spend building and re-building outfits the more thoughtful I am when picking them out for real.
    Also- these pants are perfect for parade day! I tend to wear a lot of whites and camel colors so that second to last set is my favorite.

    1. I was thinking parade day, and actually tried pairing them with some orange for the occasion, but then I remembered what I do on parade day and decided maybe wearing my expensive, nice, and easily stainable jeans wouldn’t be such a good idea! Hahaha St. Patrick’s Day itself is a possibility, but then again that’s the Monday of break. Not even sure I’ll be putting ON real pants!

    1. It’s totally affordable, too! I was shocked – most of the stuff I find and love on polyvore costs more than my car is worth by this point! I just hope the fit is alright once I get around to ordering it.
