One of my favorite color combinations is purple and green.  They’re complimentary colors on the color wheel and they appear together in nature, so it’s also totally normal.  On a casual day at work a few weeks ago (read: my boss was out of the office), I wore the outfit below.  Since this shirt dress covers everything it should, I can wear it with leggings and not violate my mandatory no-leggings-as-pants rule (unlike my antics during Snowmageddon).  

I kept the overall outfit neutral so the accessories really stood out.  My purple necklace and shoes coordinated great with the awesome emerald green (Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year, btw) bracelet that my friend Julianne bought me in Mexico, and I tied it together with a pretty multi-colored sparkle skinny belt.

Tomorrow, we’ll look at another green and purple combination.  And probably a thousand more over the course of this blog because it really is one of my favorites.
