Spring green

Bright chartreuse green is one of my favorite colours, although I rarely wear it. I have a little of this vibrant colour splashed around the house because it suits the tropical bringing-the-outdoors-in vibe, but I don't have much in my wardrobe.

What better time of year to bring out the green than Spring? This lightweight Sussan cardigan I found in last Summer's sales will probably get some wear this year, but as it's such a statement colour, I fear I'll only pair it with black and white.

Eb&Ive resin bracelet, French Connection sandals

Yup, I didn't really make the bed properly before snapping these photos in the bedroom. Probably could've straightened the cushions and fluffed the doona, and tidied the bedside table. But no. That would be too efficient.

I absolutely love this colour and the cardigan is super-comfy to throw on, but I am so unsure what else I'll wear it with. Maybe I could just lay it on my lovely tropical bedspread, that'll work.

I'm joining in with the Spring Fling over at Redcliffe Style and Kimba Likes today, make sure you drop by and say hi!

How else can I wear this cardigan as the weather warms up? Do you also love a colour that you just don't wear often enough?

(All my own pieces. Including and not limited to the messy bedroom.)
