Falling For Emerald Green

black skirt with green button down top

I always get a little sad when the weather starts getting colder, but on the bright side, I love the deep, colorful gemstone hues that fall ushers in. They are really beautiful and can make an ordinary work outfit, like a black skirt and button down top, more interesting.

The other nice thing about gemstone colors, like this gorgeous emerald green, is that they transition really nicely from day to night. Since they’re often a little bit darker, they look good with black and lighter tan, gold, and khaki tones as well.

I have been wearing this emerald green button down from Ann Taylor a LOT lately. For work, I have been pairing it with this flowy black skirt from MM. Lafleur or black pants. On weekends, I’ve paired it with black leggings or jeans and boots.

Below, I’ve linked to some of my favorite emerald green tops.

I hope that everyone’s week is off to a good start!
