Sea Foam Love

I hope that you're not all sick of my sea foam green posts yet! This serene yet cheerful shade of pale green is a huge trend for Summer 2012, but to me, it'll always simply be my favorite color. Sea foam looks wonderful when combined with neutrals like soft gray and white. For a look that's a little less sweet, try pairing sea foam with darker colors such as navy blue.

This blazer from Zara looks wonderful with the model's gray top and white skirt and shoes. I love how it dresses up what would otherwise be a pretty casual outfit.

See what I mean about pairing sea foam green with darker colors? The contrast is beautiful and not too girly-girl. I also love the idea of matching your nail polish to your handbag, right down to having a different colored accent nail. Image found via Pinterest.

Oh ModCloth, you never cease to amaze me. This skirt is beautiful and right on trend with its high-low hemline and perfect pale sea foam green color. I would wear this skirt with everything from white crochet tops to thin light brown sweaters - long after sea foam ceases to be the season's "it" color.

These lovely shoes from BHLDN are closer to robin's egg or Tiffany blue than sea foam green, but I love them nonetheless. These pretty pumps have a very distinct 1950's look to them and they'd be adorable with tea length dresses or cropped pants. The printed insole is a nice touch too, don't you think?

This shade of nail polish is to die for! The color is wonderful on its own, but I think a sea foam green manicure would be especially stunning if you add some gold glitter or gold leaf. I have a similar color polish (Revlon's "Minted"), but I'm not too thrilled about it. The color is very pretty, but it bubbles! I'm not sure if it's just that particular bottle I have because the other Revlon polishes I have are just fine...but I digress. Image found via Pinterest.

I have very small wrists so watches always look a little weird on me, but I think I'd give this one from Anthropologie a chance. This rubber and metal watch would be a perfect accent piece for many different summer outfits. I like how it looks so much more unique than the white rubber watches that seem to be popular too.

This pretty headband from Etsy seller whippy cake truly makes my heart skip a beat. And why not? It combines two of my favorite things: sea foam and sparkle. This particular headband was a one of a kind creation and is no longer available. Still, be sure to check out this shop. There are still other cute and unique accessories available and 100% of the profits go to Heart for Africa.

So what do you all think about this trendy (but in my opinion, soon to be classic) color? Feel free to let me know in your comments!
