'What I Wore' Wednesday - Navy and Green

Navy & Green...could a color combination get much better?  I have always liked these two colors and well..lately I seem to be pairing them up more and more.


When I was little, it was popular to have a sweater with your initials embroidered on the front.  Typically, they were worn with matching pants.  The sweaters were just a simple crew-neck cotton sweater, but the initials made them 'special'.  I was lucky enough to be given an outfit like this one year for Christmas from my godparents.  I was so excited to wear it and guess what?!?!  The sweater was navy with my initials in kelly green and the matching pants, well... they were kelly green too.  Wish I still had that little outfit.....

Now this has got me thinking...I do have some kelly geen pants and a navy sweater.  I also happen to have an embroidery machine, perhaps I 'could' have that outfit again?

  4. Very cute. I love how you combine all the colors. That's something I'm not very good at and need to try more often.
