Lime Green for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Paired With Blue
Quote of the day: “Learning to fail well means overcoming our natural instincts to blame someone whenever something goes wrong. People fail best when they err on the side of forgiveness.” Megan McArdle
Like I said in the last post, the inspiration for this color combination came from my t-shirt series when mom & I put together her lime green t-shirt and light blue jacket (here). The lime green is considered a cool color just like the blue and to me, they really look fabulous together. And isn’t interesting how all three lime greens are different shades? Nancy’s shirt color is more of a yellow compared to mom’s & mine. I tried to present our shirts with different blues: a royal blue, a denim blue & a light blue. You can see how I paired these same lime green shirts with white (here).
50’s Lime Green: Ever since I started writing this blog and reading other blogs, I fell in love with the idea of wearing a top over a dress. I would have never done that a year ago!! For my outfit I added the lime green top over this stunning blue dress.

60’s Lime Green: The easiest and modern way to try out a new color is with your blue jeans. We added a scarf with the ends tied to add a little interest.

70’s Lime Green: My mom has some very interesting jewelry, so we incorporated one piece into this outfit to try to snazz it up!
Smile…It’s a fabulous day! Is this color combination too bright for you?
Lime green can be found in many prints. Here’s some prints that include this fun color (all very inexpensive)!
