PANTONE-Inspired Spring Color Challenge: Day 1: Emerald

Today is the day--the FIRST day of Heidi and my's PANTONE-Inspired Spring Color Challenge. If you haven't been in on the scoop yet, here's the details. Today's color is Emerald, the color of the year.
Emerald Blazer Yellow Tank Khaki Slacks 1
Emerald Blazer Yellow Top Khaki Slacks 2
Blazer: H&M Tank: Land's End Pants: Express (Goodwill) Wedges: T. J. Maxx
I realize that my "emerald" is a bit more teal, but I felt that the emerald Pantone chose has a hint of blue in it anyway. I really liked this color combination and I guess I covered THREE of the spring colors in this outfit alone: Emerald, Lemon Zest, and Linen! I always felt like emerald was more of a fall/winter color, but when paired with spring colors, it can totally work year-round.

Want to join in? Pick a top, bottom, accessory, or pair of shoes in the color for the day and show off your spring colors with us! We will be linking up to Heidi’s blog today and tomorrow and here at The Modern Austen for Wednesday-Friday.

We are so excited for this link party and encourage all of you to participate! Don’t have all of the colors? That’s okay! Just participate whenever you can. Don’t have a blog? Don’t sweat it! We’d love to see your comments of how you wore your color and you could email us your photos, too. At the end of the week, Heidi and I will pick our favorite looks from the week and feature them in a wrap-up post!
