While we are all staying in and practicing #socialdistancing, spring is here. Before we know it, the weather will be warmer, the flowers will be blooming, and allergies back to taunt us. And when this self quarantine is over, we will go out again and visit with friends, go out to eat, and basically go back to how we were even a mere week ago.
That being said, I wanted to keep it light and share one of my favorite spring colors. If you have scrolled through my Instagram lately, you would know that I have been obsessed with green. From sweaters, to shoes, to even my nails! In honor of spring, I thought it would be fitting to share why I am drawn to green tones and some of my favorite outfits incorporating this color.
Green is pretty symbolic of spring. It reminds you of nature and Earth. The color green is also thought to represent tranquility, luck, health, kindness, and compassion. When wearing green, you don’t have to be intimidated as there are so many shades of green out there these days. For someone like me who used to avoid wearing lots of color, I’ve been loving the “biscay” green and pistachio shades a lot. To incorporate a more subtle “green” look, I like to pair a shade of green with denim, white, or black for a more neutral vibe.
My green pieces aren’t limited to clothing either. Lately I have been seeing a lot of green on bags, to shoes, to hair accessories. I love these lace-up sandals from Nordstrom. Not only are they on trend for spring (color and style), they can be worn with basically anything. Fair warning though, the strap in between the toes can be bothersome so best not to wear them all day. The minor discomfort is worth it for how cute the shoe is, but let’s just say you’ve been warned.
Do we also love these nails? It’s a more spring, edgy vibe from the traditional French manicure, but I’ve been getting so many compliments on it. This is done with gel polish, clear base and a green on top with a white dot. I’ve also seen the pearls or crystals been used in place of the dot. Ask for an almond shape file too. If you are local to Orange County, CA, I got these done at Pardon My French (Tustin location) by nail artist Tiff. For a more detailed look at my nails (and to save to share with your manicurist), check the video out on my Instagram.
Are you into green for spring? What other colors have you been drawn to lately?
I love the way you styled all of these outfits! Green is always one of my go-to shades to wear during this time of year. I love all of the pieces you recommended! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Hi Jennifer. Yes, it is great for spring and summer. I hope you are staying safe too. Sending hugs.
What lovely green outfits! I really like that first dress on you! 🙂 Green is a colour I’ve been trying to wear more recently 🙂
Hope that you are having a nice weekend 🙂 It’s another quiet one here, with all that’s going on in the world!
Great post, and really inspiring – I love green but I’d never have thought it could be quite so versatile. Love the look with the raw hem jeans and pink bag – super chic. Take care <3
I can’t get enough of green right now! I love that dress on you, it’s so cute xo
You wear green so well! All of these outfits are gorgeous! Love the twist on the french manicure!

Loving this colour palette on you Christine. And I tell you what, it does taunt. It’s so hot here and I would love to go down to the beach but I’m too afraid so many other people might be thinking the same. I think though we are lucky here because it’s easier to avoid people, there aren’t as many as in other countries. I hope you are doing well. xx Jenelle | inspiringwit.com
Omg, there are so many people here too walking around and also at the beach. It’s hard to stay home, but for the sake of stopping this thing from spreading, we all need to do our part. Hang in there Jenelle.
I really love green at the moment! All of your outfits are beautiful, I like the first one the most!
May I know what type of camera/ lens of you use?
Hope you stay healthy and safe Christine
Thanks so much! The dress is on sale right now too. These photos were taken by my photographer before social distancing and I believe he uses a Canon 5D Mark IV 70mm.
I love all your looks, but the first two are my favorite. Love your manicure. And green is totally your color 🙂 Hope you have a safe and beautiful day!
There is something about olive green. I love wearing it, seeing it, everything. And it looks so great on you! I will definitely have to look into adding some of these pieces into my collection.

I love green tones, especially emerald or olive tones. I love them year round, but more so during cooler months, which on my side of the world we’re entering and I am so excited for it!
Soooo here for green in all its forms! Definitely signals a new season. You look amazing!
