A View to a Teal
Fall is around the corner and it’s time for me to say goodbye to my summer lover, sweet turquoise/aqua and rekindle my relationship with the murky and mysterious Mr. Teal. I rounded up four items I already own (everything but the sweater) and one I hope to own. Teal has always said, “fall” to me and reminds me of my favorite outfit when I was 13. The outfit consisted of a teal corduroy skirt (cut like a denim skirt) with a matching wool sweater and contrasting wool blazer. I wore the hell out of that outfit. I think it was one of the first times I realized I had “style”. Teal and I parted ways for awhile when I began to associate the shade with hideous taffeta prom gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses.
But we reunited after I saw Bandits and fell in love with Cate Blanchett’s teal wrap dress/sea foam green sweatercoat. I chased that outfit for years and never got an approximation I loved. Though I came close with a sea foam green v-neck thin ribbed sweater dress, which I paired with a teal sweatercoat. It was close, but ultimately, I’m holding out for a more faithful reproduction.
You knew this was coming…
