Spring Greens

Tangerine orange may be the color of the year, but green is worthy of some love this spring too, right?  Green symbolizes growth, harmony, balance, and most of its shades are just quite appealing this time of year.

When I spotted this green, abstract dotted print dress in the Rack recently, I knew I wanted it.  The dress would add some well-needed green to my wardrobe.  Also, I imagined the dress complementing an older, green jacket in my wardrobe.

Gold buttons on the sides and also at the shoulder.

Dress—Guess Los Angeles via Nordstrom Rack ($49.97)

Talking about a green dress, wouldn’t you love to see this Tracy Reese dress appear in a discount store?

    Hi…I'm new to your blog and love it! Especially love the striped blue and pink/red striped Calving Klein dress. I'm pretty hooked on the CK deals to be found at Marshall's and TJ Maxx.
    I'm also a fledgeling social science researcher and educator, which means I'm still working on the Master's with a heavy foundation in research/stats and have a teaching assistantship. I always try to dress as if I was a "regular" full time educator.
    Your blog is great an I look forward to daily inspiration from it!

    Saw it on FB (again!) but I love this jacket you've paired it with, it's perfect. Such a great pattern and shape to the dress, too.

    Thanks y'all! I was worried that this dress wouldn't fit because the smallest size available in the Rack was an 8. So glad it worked out!

    @Lisa Walter: So glad you found the blog, Lisa! Feel free to email me and let me know what area of research you are specializing in. I started this blog when I was in grad school and struggling to accept my interest in style/fashion. You know how academic professions tend to denigrate style. I've come to terms with the fact that style is important. And, my students love it 🙂
