Over the last couple of years I have built up a small capsule of items in light to medium greenish-gold or greenish-tan tones. Some are solids, some are patterns. Some lean more yellow, mustard or gold, some more beige, tan or bronze. They often have interesting names. Like tapenade, cumin, antique bronze, old gold and sand.

I like these colours. When paired with black or charcoal grey they make me think of medieval tapestries and William Morris prints (pic 1).

So I call them my medieval greens.

On to WIW:

Jacket: I’ve been after a single breasted longline jacket in a colour (not black) for a while. I want to do a long over long silhouette for a change (long jacket over long skirt or long jacket over full length pants). This one is from Cue. Love it! It was labelled “tan” but definitely has a greenish hue.

Jumper: Merino from H&M. It was labelled “greenish-beige”.

Skirt: From Etro. I’ve always longed for a bit of Etro. This skirt was one of those clearance specials that Yoox offers from time to time. I love the pattern but it is a little snug around the hips and thighs. It is wool so hopefully it will stretch with wear. (I have a backup plan if it doesn’t.) It was labelled “military green” but I think “medieval green” is better, don’t you?

Necklace: Vintage, from Etsy.

Bag: Custom made, from Etsy.

Boots: From Styletread.
