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.)

    CocoLion,
    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!

    Ladies,
    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 8 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 8 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 8 years ago

    Biscuitsmom Thanks!
    Shannon,
    I have MANY scarves and fewer clothes. Thanks for liking how I combine them!
    Suz,
    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!
