What to wear: Chartreuse

The colors for fall this year are so vibrant. I bought a tomato red sweater, a plum t-shirt and a chartreuse t-shirt on my shopping trip with Nicole last weekend. But how exactly do you wear these shades? I wore the tomato sweater with a navy skirt earlier this week. Today's challenge was to boldly go chartreuse!
  • Chartreuse t-shirt - On sale for only $9 from Club Monaco. Buying it was easy, convincing myself to wear it with my pale, freckley skin was a bit harder.
  • White pants - I have been wearing these favorite white pants (from Express I think?) all summer!
  • Brown cardigan - Essential for toning down the chartreuse. Mine is a bit chunkier and has an asymmetrical zipper.
  • Tan shoes - I should really buy these shoes from Delias. I have been using them in "What to Wear's" for months.
  • Wood earrings - Mine are similar but round and in dark brass.
  • Handbag - A dark leather tote like this is a must-have for fall.
This came out pretty well! It's a great outfit for transitioning from summer clothes to fall colors.

on your suggestion, I totally purchased those wedges from delias. they leave a little to be desired on the quality side of things, but they sure are a fun color and stlye. i am crossing my fingers that the warm weather holds out so i can keep wearing them this season.

That's good to hear! I wasn't expecting much on quality but I am in desperate need for flat shoes these days.
