Ever since last Fall, I've been searching for an emerald or hunter green blouse. Searching what seems like everywhere, to no avail. I had given up already this year, when I walked into Express and spotted my favorite portofino in the color I've been wanting. God I love Express. I've said it before but I'll say it again - it never fails me! One look at the deep, rich color and it was mine, didn't even have to try it on. I think this makes portofino number 7? I've lost count. 

It's feeling like Fall here in California. Halloween usually marks the drop in temperature, but I would say this year was more dramatic than in the past. Windy falling leaves, that certain chill in the air, bad photo lighting now that it gets dark so early...I'll take whatever I can get. 

How was your weekend?


  1. That hue is absolutely gorgeous on you and I'm glad you finally found your blouse!


  2. Oh my gosh, this color is SOOO incredibly flattering on you! I'm so glad you got this blouse! And of course, I love your sleek styling with the pumps and the perfect addition of the leopard bag!

  3. I have emerald envy! I too love this color. I might just need to make a stop by Express. You look lovely.

  4. Such a pretty color on you, I love it with that bag!

  5. Thank you ladies! If you spot any other dark green pieces such as sweaters, jackets, or even bags, please let me know because I love the color and would like more of it in my closet :)

  6. That color is so great on you girl.

  7. Those heels are so cute!

    God bless,
    XO, Claire

  8. I have had a shirt like this on my wishlist for forever! Green is my favorite color and it's silly how hard it is to find the perfect green blouse. Anyway, great find and you look lovely!

  9. It always seem like when I really want something, it's impossible to find. Try finding a basic black tee...I searched for months for that a few years ago. I agree, Halloween marks Fall but I always forget that each year and I think Labor Day marks Fall and then Mother Nature reminds me that I'm wrong. lol. It even snowed here (well, in Tahoe which is an hour from me) on the 1st and I was so excited. If you didn't already know, my b-day in on Friday and I think you should give me your gorgeous purse as a b-day gift. ;) lol. I'm just kidding! Unless you were actually going to give it to me...then I wasn't kidding at all :) Seriously though, your outfit is amazing!


    1. Awww happy early birthday then Kacie! If I could stop by your house on my road trip up north in a couple days, I'd at least let you borrow it ;) And then I'd ask to borrow all of your moto jackets LOL

  10. The emerald color is just so breath-taking on you - love it so much!
