New! Madison Mannequin: Global Green

Guest blogger Alexandra Graves is an intern here at Madison Magazine and my eye on the streets for all things chic, eccentric or otherwise inspirational. So check back weekly for the latest “Madison Mannequin,” posted every Tuesday from now on. Lex will be conducting all interviews and providing commentary for this special weekly segment.

I spotted Emily Larsen at the Farmers’ Market on May 2, just as a week of rainy chill gave way to a brilliant spring day. Everything was coming up green, including Emily’s ensemble, assembled with pieces from around the world.

Emily imported her springy green Boden trench from the U.K. Underneath, she wore a Zara blouse from a shop in Miami and finished her weekend look with a bag she picked up in Italy.

“Even though it’s a winter bag, I’m workin’ it in the summertime,” says Larsen, 28, who visited Madison to see Elvis Perkins in concert at Memorial Union. A communications manager at M&I Bank in Milwaukee, Emily loves dressing for the weekend when she can “wear flats and be casual but still sophisticated.”

Emily may technically be a Milwaukee Mannequin, but I’d steal her put-together style for myself any weekend.
