Fall '13 Color Trend | Emerald

With the changing season, the greens from spring evolve and develop.
Multifaceted emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate, bringing luxury and elegance to the palette...

Totally agree with Pantone. Love this shade of green. And it looks great against any skin tone.

I'm still very pregnant (almost 39 weeks) but I'm already looking forward to seeing how my sexy post pregnancy body {insert sarcasm} will form so I can wow my hubby for our first night out on the town as new parents. Our 4th wedding anniversary is October 4th which is only a few weeks away...not sure I'll feel up to getting dressed up and going out that soon after baby but it's a great goal to shoot for, right?

In my hunt for the perfect emerald dress, I came across these cuties from some of my favorite shops. All, with the exception of #2, are under $100. You'll notice that most of these dresses are either sleeveless, strapless or short...or all of the above. They don't really scream fall, do they? Unless you live in Texas where you only really experience 2 seasons...spring and summer...in that case you can get away with wearing a short, strapless dress in the fall. :)

So yeah...probably not the best dress to try to get into after having a baby unless you're say...Heidi Klum. But I love the length and open back detailing. Super cute for a night out on the town with the girls or your man!

Beautiful dress. Great for a fall wedding!

3. ASOS midi dress with pleated skirt | on sale for $41.35
This dress is perfect for a work setting. Either paired with open toe heels or booties for the warm fall Texas temps or with a blazer, tights and boots for the cooler days. 

4. GAP drawstring dress | $59.95
Fun and easy for Saturday afternoon errands. 

5. ASOS crepe sundress | on sale for $27
Love this dress. Light, flowy, and loving the tie-up back detailing.

6. MM Couture Maxi | $98
Perfect post-baby dress. Wrap dresses are usually the way to go. Loose, yet flattering. 

Don't you just love emerald?  Such a beautiful color! 


  1. Emerald is my favorite color, hope you find a dress! I love #3!
