I was lucky enough to partner with my local Macy’s to host the Get Glam & Get Going event. Myself and three other bloggers hosted the event. We were each assigned a trend, my trend was Green Power. With that trend, we each put together a closet and dressed a mannequin. For my mannequin I chose this INC utilitarian cardigan and Free People white ripped jeans. I am obsessed with this INC utilitarian cardigan because of its versatility. It can be paired with cutoffs or a black pencil skirt.
In my closet I had a couple of dresses, my favorites were the Rachel Roy dress that I wore and an INC faux suede dress. The INC faux suede dress would go with almost any pair of shoes you have in your closet. The Steve Madden yellow fringe sandals that I wore for the event would go flawlessly with the INC dress. My favorite tops were this INC blouse and this Free People high low top. Both would pair well with cutoff shorts and either a gladiator sandal or an over the knee boot.
If you were unable to attend the event here is a video clip of my speech on how I came up with my looks and ways to incorporate this fabulous trend into your closet.
In the video I explain how versatile green can be. You can go down the trendy utilitarian route, it can be boho, and with the right shade of green it can act as a neutral, perfect for a day at the office. In order to make green act as a neutral, I would stick with a darker green and pair it with yellow, navy, pink, or even leopard.
When it comes to jewels, gold tones pair better with greens. If done right you can mix metals. And a red lip is always a plus especially if dark green is the outfit base.
The everyday woman can incorporate this trend into their closet and keep it for years to come. I urge you to embrace and play with this trend as the possibilities are endless.
I hope you enjoyed this recap. Also, a special thank you to Macy’s for choosing me to be a part of this fabulous event.
