Colour Fest Day 8 – Emerald

Pantone Emerald

Not quite aqua, not quite green, emerald sits smugly in the middle. Matching the swatch from Pantone to my wardrobe was surprising – not much actually matched!

Too aqua, too turquoise, too green, too blue, too dark, too light, ooh this matches… oh that’s right that doesn’t fit. Like half my wardrobe. Sigh.

In other observations that mug is awesome, and pretty much sums up my life, if you consider ‘make stuff’ to be faffing around online and in the wardrobe whilst watching Next Top Model.

Sure, I make stuff.

Favourite Accessory This Week

I have a lot of scarves. Way to many. This one has been on rotation lately. A simple knitted turquoise number with sequins and velvet woven through. What’s not to love?

I bought it in Dingle, Ireland in 2007. It was about 30 euros, which really is expensive for a scarf, but I think it was worth it as I love it so much. Well I do get carried away while shopping when travelling.

It just needs to be a bit longer. You know those scarves that are too long for one loop round your neck, but too short for two? Annoying (first world problems…I know)! Especially those snood things, infinity scarf things, I have one that just won’t go around twice without choking me. But one loop looks like a bib.

And speaking of first world problems, what’s the solution with trying to wear a scarf and a necklace together? My necklaces seem to hibernate in winter as scarves get prime neck real estate…

Is it poor neck etiquette to wear both?

Clearly these are the sorts of questions that keep me up all night.
