Emerald & Leopard + Items I'm Coveting


First of all, I'm pretty excited about today's post. I'm linking up with the ladies of the TrendSpin Link Up and the theme this week is emerald green.  I love me some green-the darker, the better!  I had the perfect cardigan in mind and the rest just fell into place!  I'll show you guys in just a sec!

Secondly, I finally  figured out a way to set up a makeshift photo studio in the house!  So, I got to take my photos inside today!  Thank God because it was colder today than it was last week!  Brrr! Let me know what you all think of my "studio".  I am excited to try new things with my photos!

Thirdly, I have also been doing some major coveting lately so you all will get to see what I have been pinning to my Mommy's Wish List board on Pinterest. 

Okay, well, that's lots to cover, so lets get to it, shall we? 




Emerald & Leopard
Tee: Target (similar)
Cardigan: Target (no longer available)
Jeans: Kohl's (exact)
Shoes: Target (no longer available)
Scarf: Evie J (similar)
Belt: Target (exact)
Watch: Relic (Currently unavailable online) 

I tried something with this outfit that I always shied away from-a skinny belt at the waist.  I was always afraid that it would make my hips look twice as big! I decided to be brave when I got dressed and I am so glad I did! I love how this defines my waist and makes me look like I'm 20 pounds lighter!  

This just goes to show-don't be afraid to try new things with your style.  You may surprise yourself!

Speaking of surprising yourself, I am actually surprised at some of the items I have been coveting lately.

Check these out!

  8. I never though of putting the two together, but I love it! You have me thinking leopard can go well with other solid colors that people don't think to put together. Thanks for sharing with us at Countdown in Style! Don't forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured! xo
