I’m still rolling with a monochromatic theme, this week its sea foam green! Weirdly, I don’t own anything in this color, but you can bet I’m going to change that. Monochromatic dressing hasn’t really been part of my repertoire, but for some reason it has really been speaking to me lately. Maybe because its actually so easy to pull an outfit together, focus on fit and texture, and you can end up with something so visually interesting. And these pants! I can’t even; the cut, the material, they are just so dreamy. Honestly, the whole outfit is amazing.
Clearly my cocktail needed to match my outfit, and when I think of green cocktails one of my favorites always come to mind. The last word is such a fantastic classic, tart and herbal with just enough sweetness and a little bite from the gin. If you’re not a fan, or you’ve never tried Green Chartreuse, this might not be the cocktail for you. But, if you’re looking for an introduction to this bitter, herbal and expensive liqueur then this is the perfect place to start.
