Lime Green for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Paired With a Print

Quote of the day: “I don’t have much fear of getting older, but I do dread that someday a wicked genie will make me go back and live my 20s all over again.” Elizabeth Gilbert

For the last post in the lime green series, I thought I’d pair these same lime green shirts with some kind of print.  As I was looking, I did notice that there seems to be quite a few prints that have this shade of green in them—maybe not the predominant color, but as a small token.  The lime green can be used to tie together the colors in the print or to act as a contrast to the colors in the print item.  I tried to show it with three different kinds of prints.  The earlier ones in the series showed lime green with white (here), and blue (here).

  • Gorgeous ladies! A couple of years ago when that bright lime became popular, I thought I wouldn’t like it. I do though! I bought one little top because it was el cheapo and I’ve really enjoyed it. You all look amazing.

    • I feel the same way…I didn’t even have anything this color but I love the possibilities!! Thanks for such nice words, Stacey!

  • Fabulous three outfits , but your mum outfit is my favourite ! I have a secret soft spot for your mum ! She always looks so elegant ! Have a good week Jodie.
