Today I went with tweedy black and white and black and white polka dots. I used the little chiffon scarf as a necklace (also surreptitiously trying to cover up a rather wide neckline), and I rather liked how it came out. I do love green!! The only thing I'm not sure of here is the gray tights and gray shoes, but I just couldn't do black today.
