friday's fancies #111.

A very happy Friday to you, friends! Last September, I shared the full Pantone Color Report for Spring 2013--and already had a crush on the lush emerald green tone. When Pantone announced that emerald was the color of the year, I knew we had to devote a week of Friday's Fancies to this luscious shade. As a May baby, I'm partial to emerald because it is my birthstone, but I can't wait to see so much more of it this year. Here's how I'd love to wear emerald, if money were no object...

  1. You did such a great job! For some reason I was having a tough time wit emerald - it's so pretty but I've never worn it before.

    Thanks for linking me up - happy Friday!

  5. That dress is adorable! Time to invest in some key emerald pieces for the year... and a stunning dress is a great place to start! And I'm jealous that you have such a pretty birthstone... November topaz is so 70's! Bah!

  8. I'm a May baby, too! I somehow feel that this whole "color of the year" being emerald is a sign of wonderful luck for May babies everywhere. At least that's what I'm telling myself :) Love this week's theme!
