Happy Friday -Working a Green and Brown outfit

Good morning lovely YLFR'S and happy Friday to all of you. Today the sun is actually shining and it is not supposed to snow! Yay!!! I recently purchased some thrift store shirts with the intention of getting more pattern and color into my wardrobe (other than scarves). The top I am wearing today I teamed up a few days ago with a yellow cardigan. I intend to also try it with navy and with my light green jean jacket as well as under some vnecks and scoop neck tops. I am looking for extending the mileage as much as I can. Today I am wearing it with brown which I think looks fine although not stellar. The outfit components are listed below:

green and brown paisley button down shirt (thrifted)
green three quarter length cardigan (Dress barn)
brown cords (Kohls)
brown knee high boots (ColdWater Creek) I actually wanted to tuck these but too bunchy looking - need to find some straight or skinnier jeans
khaki field jacket (Eddie Bauer) It's rumpled but is supposed to look that way
blue cross hatched scarf (American Eagle)

As always I value your comments and suggestions!

    The blue scarf against the mossy green looks lovely and unexpected. Nice subtle perk to your outfit! :)

    You look so classic and like you walked right out of one of the thoroughbred barns on "Luck." (new HBO series I'm hooked on about horse racing.)

    I haven't seen the show and alas, I don't have HBO. Sounds interesting though so I am going to check and see if Netflix or HuluPlus get any of the episodes. Thanks for the compliment!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    You are all so kind! Thanks for the nice words and being encouraging about how I am combining things! I felt I needed to apologize about the jacket being rumply Thanks for liking it!!

    Terrific choices!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago

    Gosh Meredith, you have such a beautiful collection of scarves and seem to know exactly how to combine them with your other wardrobe items.

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    LOVE the blue scarf with the green sweater. Of course I am thirsty for colour so it's especially welcome to me right now!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Biscuitsmom Thanks!
    I have MANY scarves and fewer clothes. Thanks for liking how I combine them!
    I am so glad to have you back and commenting. Thanks!!!

    I love the green mixed with the navy.

    You have beautiful eyes . . . your coloring is very similar to a friend of mine and I think I will keep an eye on all of your beautiful looks as inspiration. My friend wears mostly black, but I don't have much experience with what colors suit people that aren't either blonde and blue eyed or dark haired and dark eyed.

    Thanks Elly, You ar so sweet to say that!
