Cobalt and kelly green are one of my favorite color combos. Here's another kelly green and cobalt outfit from last month. See, told you I liked those colors together! 
The work dress code in my office is business casual, emphasis on the casual. I do not think I could handle working anywhere where the dress code was formal. I spent my childhood years forced to wear school uniforms and I could not go back to wearing bland, ugly clothes. Fashion is more than just looking cute...it really is a form of self-expression. And that's why I'm so opposed to uniforms/dress codes. Uniforms really make you lazy about your appearance (which they're designed to do, especially in private religious schools like the one I went to). No matter what you do you're going to look the same as every other person. When I transferred to a public high school I literally had no idea how to dress. It really wasn't up until last year that I consciously planned out a wardrobe, spent time mixing and matching, and really came up with my own style. So there you have it...I blame my awful private school uniforms for the years I spent as an unstylish young adult!
