Not easy being green

I was in Old Navy a couple weeks ago looking for shorts for Jeremy (you can do that in Florida :) ). They had a huge clearance event happening so we figured it was worth a trip.

After 30 minutes, he hadn’t found anything and we headed for the exit. But, as we passed the ladies’ section I stopped because something caught my eye. It was the ugliest color I’d ever seen and I pulled the item out to inspect it and make fun of the worst item in the store!

However, once I grabbed it, I realized it was a skirt. A skirt that was the most awful shade of baby poop green. As I laughed and asked Jeremy if it was my color, I realized it was also really soft, well-made with pleats and lining and it actually fit.

Hmmmmmm. Wonder how much it is?

That says $1.49!

I grabbed it and headed to check-out. A dollar and a half?! I could I not buy it? Even if I just donate it, it was worth it.

I immediately came home and headed to Pinterest. Since I figured “baby poop” wouldn’t turn up in searches, I tried “green skirt” and “army green” to get some ideas. I figured worst-case scenario, I just dye┬áit black or donate it. But I actually got some really inspiring results:

With a cardi and tans.

With cream, navy and taupe?

Really pretty!

So, it’s not easy being baby poop green but with the right counterparts and lighting, I think it might be a great buy. What do you think? Vote for dye it, donate it or make it work!

  1. In the wise words of Tim Gunn, “Make it work!” And if it doesn’t, dye it. And if that doesn’t work, donate it!
