HOT HUE // Emerald Green

ladies home journal

I’ve always been a fan of emerald green. Maybe it’s the Irish in me, but it’s a color that never goes out of style, it just gets ‘hot’ every now and then. Now that Pantone declared it one of their colors of year for 2013 it’s blowing up. Once I saw this Ladies’ Home Journal image from December 1964 (via here) I knew it would be my intro to an emerald post. Magazine was my specialty in journalism school so I have a minor obsession with old magazines. I had to limit my emerald picks because this post could have gone on for days, but here are some of my favorite emerald items out right now.

Can we take a moment for this Jil Sander bag. If it wasn’t so so soooo out of my price range it would be mine.

I’ve been dying to own anything Waylande Gregory but I always go back to this green leopard tray.

I have already collected several green nail polishes this year, but not an emerald hue, so Essie’s Going Incognito is catching my eye.

This little green clock is so cute and affordable. Perfect for a desk.

Malachite is also a huge trend right now, again, I’m a fan. I love how it has an abstract quality with the lines and shapes. This little malachite box can hold anything from jewelry to washi tape.

A refillable notebook is the perfect desk accessory to keep organized. Remember what I said about having one notebook
