Shop the look-
Top: Loft (exact, 3/4 sleeve version)
Necklace: Lia Sophia (old)
Pants: Banana Republic
Shoes: Target (leopard)
These emerald pants from Banana Republic are such a great winter color. Since emerald was this week’s topic for Laura’s Trend Spin link up, I decided to try it out with a navy blazer and lace top. And this necklace ties the two colors together nicely! Who would have thought that two dark colors would work like that?
On a totally unrelated note, I have been doing workout DVDs this winter since I am not running outside. And I secretly want to be an extra in one. You know, like the ones doing the workout with Jillian Michaels or Shaun T or a celebrity trainer or whatever…how cool would that be?!
I wonder if they take breaks between exercises since they are NEVER out of breath or get sprayed down with baby oil to mimic that perfect glistening of sweat…I want to know the behind-the-scenes secrets!
I’m pretty sure that Jillian Michaels uses professional dancers in hers…but what about someone like me?! I would be the best backup exerciser with superb skills like: smiling most of the time, great form, coordinated…and I’d rock out the workout gear!
So that’s my back up plan in case this whole 9-5 thing doesn’t work out. I think I’d be a stellar workout extra. If any workout producers or trainers want to give me a call for a tryout, I’m your gal!
And PS–This Thursday, I am co-hosting at Agi’s Tres Chic Fashion Link Up over at Vodka Infused Lemonade! Be sure to link up with an outfit and visit!
Linking up with Style Elixir and Walking in Memphis in High Heels.
I’m wearing the same leopard print shoes today! I like how you styled this outfit!
Aren’t those the best?! They go with everything! Thanks Maria!
Love the emerald pants! You are right they are perfect for the winter.

Super chic! I love your blouse and necklace!
Thanks Rachel! :-)
Hee hee hee! Good luck with that extra/back-up work! I am excited to hear how it goes ;) My friend showed me Insanity just because she wanted to make fun of certain people in the class on the DVD, then was telling me how online forums talk about them. LOL. Obsessed much, people?
Um, you are running outside this Friday?!
My inbox is flooded with requests LOL. I actually make fun of the ppl doing the workouts after doing the DVD 10 times– they just seem to get annoying. But online forums?! Get a life people!
And yes, I think the last time I ran outside was November- gasp! Hoping Chiberia Junior moves out before then!

I like those emerald pants! And actually the blazer as well! I need to work on bringing the blazer back. I’ve gotten a bit casual lately.
So, workout extra? Will you teach us the moves?!
Thanks Lauren! Cue the Justin Timberlake song: “I’m bringing blazers back….” :-)
I love those pants! You’ve just given me some ideas for outfits when I return to work! I need to start thinking about more than just yoga pants… :)
And I’ve often wondered about workout DVD extras – who they are, how they were chosen, etc. I bet you’d be perfect!
I’m so glad! But I think everyone should have the right to wear yoga pants to work…let’s be serious :-)
And I think half of it is dancers that are looking for a gig for cash…but I don’t care, I want in on it! lol
Love this entire look, especially those leopard print heels!
Thanks Lauren! The heels definitely give it a touch of pizazz!

My backup plan is to be one of the characters in costume at Walt Disney World. But doing and exercise DVD would be cool too. :)
Love that backup plan! That would be so fun and neat to see the kids faces!
Haha, I love your backup plan, Valerie! You look really cute in this outfit, too – those pants are really pretty and they look great with navy.
