It’s the holiday season, and of course that means a total overload of red and green.  I’m more of a neo-traditionalist, I’m conservative but with a twist, so I’m feeling super inspired by emerald lately, it’s a more subtle, elegant way of incorporating holiday colors into your wardrobe and decor without being so in your face (and running the risk of looking like an elf!).  So I put together this inspiration board with some emerald ideas (try offbeat versions too, like malachite) to subtly incorporate holiday greens with style!
