Last week I had the pleasure of trying out yummy smelling Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash and I featured some spring looks inspired by the luscious emerald green color which, last year, was Pantone color of the year. I thought, “what could be better than pairing it with this years equally gorgeous color of the year radiant orchid!”  Both colors exude a fun, sunny feel that’s perfect for spring and summer.  Since I featured the emerald green in the form of clothing in my last post I decided to focus on coordinating accessories that compliment the color.

Injecting radiant orchid into your every day looks is easily done by adding accessories like a bag clutch, big colorful earrings, a mani or a light weight scarf.  FYI: If you decide to rock an emerald top, add some accessories in radiant orchid to your wrist or hands.  If you’re wearing emerald bottoms, inject orchid upwards towards your face.  The idea is to let the colors shine individually – that way you don’t take away from the outfit by overwhelming it with too much color. Neutral classic colors like white, beige and gray are perfect as a blank canvas for the emerald green and lilac.

Check out the colors in action below.

For a polished outfit I put the green on top and gave it an extra pop of color with the orchid clutch.  The way the colors are balanced makes them flattering rather than overwhelming.  If you want to dress the outfit down, add some white cut off shorts and metallic sandals.
Incorporating Emerald Green into outfits

In my second look (my favorite) I decided to go with a day to night look using different shades of green. Because the shorts are sexy I toned it down for daytime by adding a denim vest and added a big bold orchid necklace to draw the attention upwards.  For night you can simply take off the vest and add some gold sandals.

Spring Outfits

If you’re looking to add the colors in small doses you can easily get a mani and/or pedi in radiant orchid and add the emerald in the form of a ring or bracelet.  Or you can get a mani pedi that combines both colors – it will look amazing with a tan!

Both colors  will help you create heading turning looks that will go beautifully with your soft scented skin that the Emerald Rush™ gave you.

As a mom of five boys it’s essential for me to take some time out for myself, which is why I was SO excited to try out Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash.  Looking good and feeling should go hand in hand and there’s nothing like a brand new body wash to leave you feeling fresh and ready to start your day.  My skin tends to get dry and I stay away from harsh bars of soaps, so using body washes is ideal for me. I was pleasantly surprised with how well the  Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash foamed up and the scent is not over powering yet strong enough to linger and it leave your skin silky smooth!  

It’s definitely a nice addition to my daily bath essentials and it doesn’t hurt that the color Emerald Green (last years pantone trend) is just gorgeous!  I’ve always loved emerald green and spring is the perfect time to wear it!  It can easily make its way into any outfit via a great bold accessory, shoes or a pretty midi skirt.  Either way it’s a great color that can be worn year round and easy to partner up with this years pantone trend, radiant orchid.  Check out some looks featuring the pretty shade of green below.

An emerald green midi skirt (a huge spring trend) will give your spring outfit a pop of of the luscious color.  Pair with a white blazer and gold accessories for a crisp clean feel.

Looking to sport the emerald green in more than one outfit?  Then try a jacket that has pops of green!  Pair it with jeans and a tee, over a little black dress or go monochromatic with all white (another color I love for warmer temps).

Amazing how one body wash can inspire so much!
