Unfortunately I didn’t make it to New York City Fashion Week, but it’s definitely on my bucket list. If I had attended, this is definitely an outfit I would’ve worn. All I would need is a leather jacket to wear on my shoulders and I would’ve been set. Lately I have been finding I am loving green for fall…specifically this emerald green tone. This color was in the top ten color palette for Pantone’s NY Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 color trend report. The color is close to what they’re calling Quetzal Green.
If you know me personally, you might be surprised to hear that green is my favorite color of the season right now. When we moved into our new home, the first thing I did was repaint our green kitchen. I guess the jewel tone of this green is what I love. It’s the perfect color for fall and I have a feeling it will be shown a lot this season.
I styled this fringe skirt with a lace cami and leopard pumps to dress it up. If you’re not attending fashion week, this look is perfect for a date night, dinner out with friends, a rehearsal dinner or medium dressy events. I could also see the skirt being worn to church with a different top or if you work at a creative office with a button down top. I can also see myself wearing a sweater with this skirt as it cools down. I love that this skirt can be dressed up or down. I know I will be wearing it on repeat all fall.
I did size up in the skirt and wish I hadn’t. I would say it runs true to size. I thought it was going to run small, although the reviews didn’t specifically say it did. I had to pin it in with a safety pin and used the belt to make it fit correctly. After that quick fix, it was perfect.
What is your favorite color of the season?
What a fun skirt!! This outfit is so chic to me and I definitely agree–would’ve been perfect for NYFW. Love how this looks fallish but wouldn’t make you sweat!

Thank you so much. I would’ve loved to wear it to NYFW. Maybe next year. Yess that’s exactly what I was going for. It’s really hot here, so I’m dressing in fall colors, but light weight pieces. When it cools down I’ll add a sweater and maybe jacket to this look.
This is such a pretty skirt!! I love this color for fall!!!
Aw thanks 🙂
Hi Courtney I hope your week is going good. I really love this unique emerald green skirt on you it looks so fun, they will definitely look good with a leather jacket or button down top. You better be careful going to Fashion Week in New York if they see your style they will have you working! You would totally fit in. I like butterscotch yellow for fall color. What do you think? I love the backdrop for your photos with the cobblestone streets and guessing it’s in Birmingham? Enjoy the rest of your day hugs Terri ❤
Thank you so much, Terri! It’s off to a good start. I hope yours is too. Thank you so much, I love this piece. You are seriously the sweetest. What a lovely compliment. I love butterscotch yellow too. I actually just shot a dress in that color. I will share it soon 🙂 Yes, these cobblestone street are in Birmingham. It’s a really charming street in downtown called Morris Ave. I was so glad to finally visit it. It had been in my list.I hope you have a great rest of the day too. <3
Aww I am just telling it as I see it Courtney!! Looking forward to the butterscotch yellow post! If I ever get to Birmingham I will visit Morris Avenue. Take care, Terri xo.
You’re so sweet! Thanks, Terri. It will be coming next week. 🙂 Yes, you should. It is a neat spot that I was excited to visit. It’s not a far drive either, so I bet I will take pictures there pretty frequently. There is also hardly any traffic on the road, so I only had to move a few times for cars. Jake was keeping a look out.
Aww I am glad Jake was keeping an eye out , very nice of him!
I have always love the dark emerald greens! So lovely!
Me too. It’s so elegant. Can’t wait to wear it more. I think I’m going to wear an emerald dress this weekend for a rehearsal dinner.
That skirt is amazing! You styled it to perfection! And wow! These photos are some of my favorites of you. They’re so fun!
That is so sweet of you! I was so excited to find these cobblestone roads and this might be one of my top favorite outfits yet 🙂
I just love this fun outfit – you look gorgeous! And I agree, perfect for fashion week! I’m loving emerald green this fall, too.
Thank you so much, Amanda! I hope to go next year. Yes, I am so glad to be seeing it shown a lot. It is dark, but still a jewel tone 🙂
I love jewel tones–your skirt is beautiful! My maternity wardrobe for this fall is limited, but I bought a burgundy top that I’m loving for transitioning to fall!
Aw thank you so much. Congratulations! 🙂 Burgundy is also equally one of my favorite colors for fall. I think that will be perfect to bring you into fall. I just placed a fall order last night and it was all burgundy haha.
Oooo, I’m loving that skirt….both the color and style! I love how you paired it with the leopard heels!
Thank you so much. 🙂 It was a fun outfit to style. I am a huge leopard fan, so I decided to add a little more of my style to the look.
Green is one of my favorite colors and I just love he emerald green on his dress. You look so pretty wearing it.
It really is such a pretty color. I love how bold and gorgeous it is. Aw thank you. 🙂
