Pink and Green - Better Late Than Never!

Many months ago, Audi posted this contest on her blog. I didn't enter it. But I have loved pink and green together since I was little, when I had an embroidery kit that had pink flowers with green leaves (it also was of a koala, which I really loved).

When I bought my obi, I wanted to build an outfit around that pink and green.
I had to make both pink and green the accent colours, since I have very little of that kelly/mossy green in my wardrobe - this is a serious lack, which I will aim to remedy! I love green! But I generally loathe pink, so accent it stays.

I am wearing a green camisole under the (very see-through) white blouse. And my toenails are pink.

The stuff:
Another wonderful Smoking Lily obi. The print on the pink silk is in green and silver ink, of colour-by-number flowers. The back of it is silk shantung in olive green.

The necklace makes me think of bubbles...or olives in a martini!

By the way, yesterday was a stat holiday, so no Monday outfit! Yay! I avoided Monday!

Blouse (French Connection), cami (Esprit), skirt (Le Chateau), obi (Smoking Lily, consignment), necklace (gift shop on holiday), shoes (Qutie). Forgot earrings! D'oh!
