Emerald and Dots

Every year around December this green cardigan becomes my new best friend.  Paired with polka dots and some pretty jewels and I'm golden.

Cardigan - F21 (old, similar) / Shirt and Necklace (similar) - JCrew Factory / Jeans - Gap / Boots - Bandolino (old, similar) / Watch and Bracelet - Michael Kors / Bracelet - Baublebar

Looking at this post is making me realize how much my style has evolved over the past couple of years.  I never used to wear button downs, and if I added a cardigan to an outfit it was strictly for warmth purposes.  I threw on an outfit the other day when all of my clothes were dirty and was instantly taken back to 2008 Kristina, who wore a lot of v-neck tee shirts with camis and rarely sported any jewelry.  If only that girl could see me now, she'd be so proud!

  1. Green looks great with your hair color! I'm sure you get that comment a lot, though

  2. Emerald looks so great on you, Kristina! And I'm sure I've said this before, but I'm constantly jealous of your roof. I wish my apartment had something similar!

  3. you look amazing! is that the roof of your place? great view!

  4. Green is such a great color on you! And I'm loving that polka dot button down!

  5. This outfit reminds me that I have a cardigan similar to this and never wear. Emerald looks stunning on you!

  6. This looks amazing! I often wish I had a green cardigan, this reminds me why!

  7. 2008 Kristina sounds eerily similar to 2008 Elizabeth! My style definitely evolved once I went to college and started in the real world. Love this look :)

  8. Too funny I wore an almost identical emerald cardigan today! Great minds think alike!


  9. I'm really liking the color of this cardigan on you. And that necklace is so pretty!

  12. Gorgeous golden girl indeed! You make the layering look so effortless.

  14. Love this sweet holiday look! I totally bring my green cardigan out twice as much this time of year as well... though I tend to go a little too far and pair it was red for a full-on Christmassy look :P
