Skittles, Lettuce, Pea Soup

We Live Upstairs Skittles Lettuce Pea Soup Outfit

Hello friends, happy Monday! I hope your weekend was full of great times with fantastic people like mine was!

This combination was inspired, off-the-cuff, by all the lovely shades of green seen in this article/slideshow; though instead of featuring them each separately, I decided to throw them all together in (on?) the giant crock-pot that is my body (sorry, I just really wanted to make a soup analogy since, not moments ago, Matt engineered/I sampled the most perfect soup on god's green earth. It doesn't exactly flow like my typically otherworldly zingers, but I get points for attempting, yes?).

Anyway, I've seen monochromatic ensembles time and again, but it only just occurred to me to try one on for size myself. I'm pleased to report that I'm pleased and that I'll be doing it again. Purples look particularly flattering against red hair, so I expect it will be my next victim.

    1. Haha, thanks girl! I knew you'd have my back.
      And I looove knee/thigh highs, but in my neck of the woods it's already getting to full tight weather, unfortunately. Wear em while you can!

  3. Green is my favorite & I love the skirt/ blouse/ knee high combo. I actually always liked green extra-alot with red hair too!
