Leafy Love

There are still a few dark, damp and deeply scared leaves clinging to the trees. Just a few more days remain before the branches release their finery and their knotty fingers reach forlornly to the cold gray sky.

These brass leaf earrings with their embossed veins and their new spring green and aqua color remind me to appreciate the color of green when it returns in the spring. Until then, I am grateful that I get to wear cozy sweaters and earthy hues that can be punctuated by pops of bright color.

I don't have the occasion to dress up that often, but when I do I like to wear classic styles with just a touch of quirk. I would pair these earrings with a brilliant green top that would stand out in the gray days ahead paired with a tweedy pencil skirt. And I am so glad that I never got rid of my leopard print pumps as they are back in style with a vengeance. 

Coral is the perfect foil to all this bright green and makes the green a neutral with its in-your-face-kapow color.

I can be fine with the coming winter as long as I can surprise even myself with these escapees from the Crayola factory.

Of course, I am usually wearing jeans, a t-shirt and cardigan and a pair of flats. But if I were to dress up, this is what I would choose to release my inner goddess.
