For a long time, I didn’t think I could wear green. Over the years, however, I’ve come to realize that green isn’t bad for me at all, depending on the shade. I personally love emerald and mint, and lucky for me, the former was named Pantone’s colour of the year, and the latter is popping up everywhere.
I last wore this green dress for a date night with hubs, and I really wanted to see if I could make it appropriate for work (it being strapless and hence not at all appropriate for work). This is one of those rare times where I’m thankful for being relatively small-busted, because that means I can generally pull off slightly lower necklines than a busty woman because I really have no cleavage to speak of. I was also careful to keep the blazer on and closed all day, because I didn’t think it would be appropriate to be sitting at my desk in a strapless dress.
I love how fresh the green looks with the taupe blazer. Totally different than the first time I wore it!
