Green Is Good!
When Pippa Middleton wore an emerald green Alice Temperley gown on the evening of the royal wedding, the world sat up and took notice. Now everywhere we look, various shades of the head-turning color are taking hold. From floor sweeping numbers at the Met Costume Institute Gala Benefit to casual-chic courtesy of the beloved chino – get ready to embrace the green revolution.

4. Botkier Maddie Snake Shoulder Bag ($375)
When I saw this Botkier Maddie Snake Shoulder Bag with delicate yet edgy accents, I think I drooled a little bit. I love the size because it would be perfect for carrying all my stuff throughout the day, but it also has an effortless sleekness to it.
5. Lee Angel Jewelry Dakota Drop Hoop Earrings ($204)
Lee Angel’s Lee Angel Jewelry Dakota Drop Hoop Earrings will add a touch of vintage-inspired glamour to your look. Wear these turquoise drop earrings with a crisp white shirt for day, or a cascading silk gown as part of an old Hollywood red-carpet look.
6. ROSEGOLD Tanya Cork Platform Sandals ($158)
I’m smitten with the ethereal beauty of this Tanya platform sandal by Rosegold. An earthy juxtaposition of soft and natural textures, the impeccable sandal’s suede upper and cork footbed create a wealth of artistic splendor, while its square metal buckle adds a dazzling splash. I’ve never seen a curvier, more naturally contoured footbed, and you’ll agree that thick straps and a chunky heel create one sizzling, slenderizing ride. Oh, and were you hoping for a bit of stabilizing traction … perhaps some ventilation … and maybe a flattering match with everything in your summer closet? Check, check and check.
