Teals, Greens, and Home Decor

Top: Old Navy (shop)  |  Skirt: MNG via JCPenny (similar #1, similar #2, )  |  Pumps: Target (similar)  |  Necklace: c/o Eclectic Ornaments (shop)

I guess I'm on a blue/green/teal kick.  I don't think I ever used to wear colors that were next to each other on the color wheel, but it's like once the floodgates opened, there ain't nothing stoppin' it.  I particularly find it wonderful because I've always loved teal and green hues and could never really choose between them.  Now I can just wear them all together!  Would you wear similar colors together?

I wore this to a friend's going away party a couple of weeks ago.  Yes, I am a little behind on outfit posts, but whatever.  In current events, we're redoing our master bedroom!  Not remodeling, just a decor and furniture overhaul, but exciting nonetheless.  It's the least put-together room in the house though it's where we spend the most time.  I'M SO EXCITED!!!  Seriously.  Yesterday was our first trip to Ikea for step 1 of the overhaul and I was giddy all morning in anticipation of getting this ish done.  If you guys have suggestions for decor / home organization blogs that you love, please share!

  1. I completely agree that normally I wouldn't have put these colors together because they are too similar but thanks to people like you I have found the confidence to do so!

  3. My bedroom is my oasis, so I totally get how exciting this kind of overhaul can be!  And Ikea...I'm hoping to make a trip to one in our area soon.  Their Hemnes dressers are so cute!

  13. I absolutely love this outfit! I don't think I would even think to put similar colors together, but then again, I might do it and not even realize it. Anyway, yours looks great : ) Ooh, exciting times! Can't wait to hear how your bedroom turns out!

  14. I love the idea that you can just put all of your favorite similar shades together! It looks super cute. Have fun with the makeover. I wish we could redo our master bedroom!

  15. I'm so excited to be moving at the end of this year because it means I get to actually decorate part of an apartment. Me. My own space. I bet you're gonna have WAY too much fun with the redecoration!

    As for similar colors together... I love it. A lot. So much I wrote about doing something similar at Wardrobe University, hehe. Your necklace looks killer against the color of your top!

  17. You look great!  Love green and blue together.  Pintrest is great for looking at pictures of home decor options.

  18. This is a great color combo!  I have been seeing it a lot in the Kate Spade ads.  I have worn the 2 colors together and my hubby told me I didn't match...what does he know right?

    Good luck on the bedroom re-decorate.  My husband & I have been on a hunt for new bedroom furniture and it's hard to find good furniture at a decent price point.

  19. Match smatch.  Tell him Stacy and Clinton would just say, "It doesn't need to match, it just needs to go."  And they rule the universe, so they win.  :P

  24. I bought a very similar necklace from Eclectic Ornaments 3 days ago! I can't wait for it to arrive. You styled it so beautifully here. Your skirt is lovely, and I love it paired with the green top. Your pumps are the perfect "pop" of neutral (haha, usually it's the other way around). Great look overall!
