Feature Friday – Emerald

Emerald was recently chosen by Pantone for the new color of 2013! I was rather pleased with this choice, seeing that my favorite color is green! 

Greens, and emeralds especially, bring to mind so many different images. Lush forests, spring flowers, deep envy, reptilian desires all come out to play in my imagination. I love the dark and slightly forbidden elegance of emerald and I wanted to share a few of my favorite finds that I've come across recently that embody this color's possibilities.

Are you happy with the chosen color of 2013? 
If so, how are you going to incorporate emerald into your new year? 
Personally, I struggle wearing this color in large blocks. My complexion is pale and yellow toned, making emerald unsuited to my skin. However, I love emerald in jewelry and accents so I'm planning on splashing it on assorted accessories in my wardrobe.
