sophisticated twist on turquoise

Turquoise has long been my favorite color for jewelry but lately it has been creeping its way in to my dream wardrobe and home accessory crushes. I once thought it was only appropriate for casual looks but these pieces prove that turquoise definitely has stand alone sophistication.

Also I have a guest post today over at Mostly Mod on one of my favorite modern calligraphers!

You know, although I love this color, I can't say that I have it in my wardrobe anywhere other than jewelry... I have some teal, but no turquoise, and this post is making me think I need to remedy that!
