Emerald Envy with Starbucks ($100 Gift Card Giveaway)

This is a compensated post in collaboration with Starbucks.  All opinions and thoughts in this post are honest and mine.

Summer is officially here! I seriously can’t believe how fast time has flown by. You know how time flies when you’re having fun. And I have been having a lot of that lately. That’s what fashion is all about right? Having fun? OK…if it’s not fun, then you’re  probably not doing it right.

When I think about having my fun with fashion, I always think about bright and bold colors. Like emerald, Pantone’s color of the year. In fact, I’ve partnered with Starbucks to show you how I wear and accessorize this gorgeous color. And because of their signature green straws, it’s super easy to rock your outfits with any of Starbucks iced beverages.

My favorite is the Vanilla Frappuccino in case you were wondering. Just thinking about it makes me thirsty!

This summer incorporating emerald into your outfits is simple. Whether it’s a fun flowy top, a safari print dress, eyeshadow, statement necklace, or your favorite pair of shoes—this is the the “it” color of the year. Don’t be afraid to pair it with other colors besides white and black. Try yellow! I promise you this is a color that can be worn by anyone. Just take a look at the outfits and looks I put together below. As you’ll see, I made sure to accessorize with a few of my favorite Starbucks iced beverages.
