I'm willing to say that forest green is the new black! It’s a great neutral that can be worn with so many different colors and is perfect for the transition into spring.This Fashionista rocked the color in a great jacket that fits well and is light enough for spring. A jacket in army green is a great staple item and adds a little flair to any day-to-day outfit. This Fashionista not only had a great outfit but was also spotted supporting a great cause as well. She had a cute pair of black sequined TOMS that added a little sparkle to her outfit. TOMS are not only adorable and comfortable; they give back to the community. For every pair you buy, the company gives a pair to a child in need of shoes so he or she has protected feet and is allowed to go to school. It’s a great company and the shoes have been spotted on celebrities such as Sophia Bush.
