Green Suit, Green Shoes – I Might As Well Be A Martian!

I really like the color green but sometimes find it so difficult to pair with other colors. For me, it’s usually just a matter of putting blue with it, but what else does it go with? It’s one of the reasons that I don’t often wear this suit, partly because it is a really really light powder green, partly because it’s mohair and therefore is easily ruined if not extremely careful. Nevertheless, I frequently get bored of not wearing green and then go a bit overboard in putting a lot of it into my attire, as I have in this outfit, although I quite like how it all turned out…..a bit more green equals a bit more fun….a bit more fun equals not having a somber attitude and you can’t beat that!! But I think that I now need to graduate into a nice olive green moleskin suit, that’s one that you can have so me fun with…..and of course, more green shoes!!!
