I Don’t Want to Go Green!

Before you get upset, hear me out. I don’t want to go green! But it’s not about being ecologically friendly, that I am all for. It’s about the Pantone colour of the year for 2013…Emerald.

I just don’t think I can do it!

Emerald is a beautiful colour, and stone. I even own a few things with a bit of green in them. One shirt, one pair of shoes, a knit vest and a winter puff vest. However, both the knit and winter vest are a lime green, the shoes are a dark green and brown sort of camouflage print. The one shirt is a paisley print with greens and blues, you might remember it from here.

I’m not a green person…occasionally green with envy, and sometimes a little green around the gills, if I won the lottery I could be rolling in the green…but dressing in green…it freaks me right out!

How Green is Too Green?

How Green is Too Green?

I keep having visions of the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz.

Wicked - going green

And lets face it…green wasn’t an easy colour for Elspeth either!

I suppose with time, I could be persuaded in some small way to increase the green in my wardrobe, but I’m more likely to turn blue from holding my breath.


Emerald - Rolling in the Green

… if I keep seeing fantastic images like these, I may be an easier convert than I think! I’m kind of loving those metallic brogues and the sequin top.

I guess in 2013 we will see if I buy in to the hoopla or if I stick to my initial “I don’t want to go green” attitude.

What about you? Are you already in the green, going for green or going to pass on this one?
