Emerald City

Pantone announced earlier this year that the color of the year for 2013 is emerald. While I wasn't ready to wear the color for the summer, I am thrilled to find some emerald pieces to wear this fall. 

The easiest way to incorporate color into your wardrobe without busting the bank is with a few clothing pieces. A great emerald skirt would look adorable paired with a ladylike blouse and some booties. A formal emerald dress will help you stand out in a sea of black for a fall wedding. 

Personally I would love to get a great handbag in emerald, that way no one will think I am weird if I carry the same bag everyday (not that I care what people think, but I definitely know I would get some stares and questions from my coworkers if I wore the same emerald skirt multiple days in a row). 

If you want something more subtle then clothing and handbags, a great men's wear inspired watch with an emerald face is the most discreet way to rock the color.  

How do you plan to rock emerald this year?
