Green with Envy

Without selling out my beloved turquoise, I find myself drawn to all things green right now. Rich velvet couches, cute sneaks and emerald-colored clutches are all on my list of Daily Covets.

I’m starting to notice a smattering of all shades green in couture collections, home decor sites and at most of my favorite retailers these days too. Is this the next big color?

Every season benefits from the freshest hue on earth. From Springy rebirth to the evergreen hue of a Christmas tree in Winter, there’s no shortage of green all year ’round.

Fall Trend Report 2013

Fall is my favorite time of the year for fashion, and the fall trend reports are out!  Momaha mug

Here is the line up of some of the styles you’ll likely see when the weather turns colder.

What’s your favorite trend?

Daily Covet: Gucci Peep Toe & Ankle Strap Shoes

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these grass green Gucci peep toes with the gold “mirrored” heel.

Gucci obviously knows what they are doing when it comes to leather goods and these shoes scream “Spring” to me… something I’ve been waiting to hear since fall showed up last year!

This mom-to-be-again loves the fact that the heel is small and secure, but also appreciates the very sexy and feminine ankle strap.  And what’s not equally as sexy as the tiny peek at your first spring pedi?

Daily Covet: J. Crew in Retro Jade

J. Crew again?!

And the answer is YES! for a very good reason.

If you follow me on Pinterest or caught the post on handbags in my favorite color, you have probably picked up on the fact that I UH-DORE turquoise.    J.Crew sent me an email with their fall lookbook (Thanks J.Crew!) and says that I can even pre-order.

Of course, I had previously checked out pics from the J.Crew Fall 2012 show (see here), so I knew that I was going to be coveting half the store this season. (Is this different from any other season?)

My two favorites:  the Wool Cafe Capris in Retro Jade and the Tippie Sweater in Jade Snake Print.  J. Crew is calling it jade.  Green?

Nonetheless, both are completely drool-worthy!

Daily Covet: Convenient “Green” bags in brights

My biotiful bags were created as a sustainable organic accessory for stylish and eco-concious shoppers.

Each handbag, tote or envolope-style clutch is made from certified organic cotton, dyes that are free of heavy metals and are sustainable from the inside out.   Not only that, the company’s mission is to raise awareness for organic cotton and its positive impact on people and the planet.

Cute, practical and good for the earth —  what a concept!

Mid-week covet item…

ok, so I couldn’t wait to feature another covet item… because I WANT a lot of stuff!

A lovely Omaha mom, fan of MOmaha.com and LittleBlackSweats.wordpress.com asked me to post the couch I want for my sunroom (for those of you who have been in my house, that’s DH’s old office!)  So here is the cutest sofa of all time and I “mocked” it up at ballarddesigns.com.  Now to pick some scratch from my money tree to purchase it!
