pantone just announced that the 2013 color of the year is EMERALD! i for one, am excited!!! i’ll never forget the emerald green sleeveless short suit that i wore for my senior pictures. and i had fake nails that were a mile long. yikes…now there’s another throwback pic i need to find for you guys. although i do kinda wish i had that short suit now! oh well, just thought i’d share a few emerald pieces i have come across lately. i’ve also got my eye on these velvet shorts and this velvet blazer. i guess what i’m trying to say is i want something that is both velvet AND emerald. lol…

    Love these picks – that LOFT tee is too cute! I have had my eye on a Kate Spade bag that’s emerald & on sale…just don’t know if I can bring myself to pull the trigger!

    I’m really surprised by this pick! I knew it would be something bold and bright, from all the similar shades coming up in design and on the runway. Not sure if I am 100% in love with it, though a silky emerald blouse always looks luxe! Fun post.

    It really is an amazing color! Plus it looks good on anyone really. I love the wedges you found! It is a great accent color to any wardrobe.

    Haha I would LOVE to see that photo. I think my Mom’s bridesmaids wore emerald green skirt suits to her wedding (with huge hair and shoulder pads of course).
    I am super excited about this color too. It looks so good on everyone!

    I think it’s rather funny that Pantone has taken upon themselves to name “it” colors. Just a random thought. Nevertheless, emerald is beautiful and perfect for the winter!

    Oh I love that t-shirt! I wasn’t totally in love with Emerald until I started searching for it specifically, but now I am obsessed!
