Wishful Thinking FOTD

So as many of my readers know, my daughter and I have been sick, therefor absent, for a few days in effort to recuperate. We still aren't at 100% over here health wise, but after my shower tonight I felt up to doing a little something for you.
The weather here in Michigan went totally crazy yesterday and we went from 12 degree crazy blizzard weather to 60 degree super awesome thunderstorms today. It's totally insane and it has everyone, including myself, wistfully thinking of spring. So in the spirit of spring, I decided to do a pretty look to remind me of the season I love. A list of the products I used will be at the end of the post.
When creating this look I was really looking to capture the softer more delicate colors of spring which makes this a very wearable look. And being that the great and mighty beauty gods at Pantone said the color of the year is emerald green, I figured it fit my theme well and should most definitely have a place in this look. And I would just like to say that I am very pleased with emerald green being the color of the year and can't wait until the Sephora+Pantone Universe color of the year palettes come out. I haven't heard anything on it yet, but my ears and eyes are open.

 I hope you like this look, I really do. It's something I could see myself actually wearing. I don't generally wear heavy makeup when I go out, so I definitely favor the softer colors.
