make believe: fresh, green spring

Kermit doesn’t know what he’s talking about. It’s pretty easy to be green. It’s an earthy color full of vivacity and life, and incredibly wearable.

I’ve been having a serious green moment lately, particularly with how different shades of green hold different meanings and feelings. The first time I wore green eyeshadow I felt invincible. Not sure if it was the being 14 and experimenting with my first ever makeup palette, or if it was that I had chosen the most electric shade of lime green. My shade preference has definitely developed over the years, but I still love a good shade of green.


Maybe it’s because of my eye color or growing up in the country surrounded by leafy trees, but a deep, olive-hunter green will always be my go-to. There is a certain comfortability and, even when it’s not a violent, lime color green, invincibility to the color. When colors give you nostalgia it’s amazing how much you find yourself reaching for them.
