Olive Green for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With Red
Quote of the day: “Uncertainty will always be part of the taking charge process.” Harold S. Geneen
Olive green is a great color—it can be styled like a neutral since it’s more muted! When I went through our closets, I found different items in this green for this post series. I got to wear pants in the color of choice, Nancy had a jacket and mom wore her dress that she made many years ago! And since this is usually a festive week for most of us, I started the pairing off with the holiday colors! Sometimes, I don’t put these colors together during other times of the year, just because they can look too Christmasy…but then again, who cares? and olive green is different than the bright Christmas green we usually see marketed.
50’s Olive Green (Pants): As a knitter, one must have a sheep pin in their possession (at least that’s what I was told when I purchased it!!)
Pants: Banana Republic (similar here)~~Shrug: Franco Mirabelli (similar here)~~Turtleneck: Land’s End (similar here)~~Shoes: David Tate (similar here)~~Pin: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)~~Belt: (similar here)
60’s Olive Green (Jacket): Nancy has worn these red Fabrizio-Gianni jeans a ton! I love how bright & colorful they are.
70’s Olive Green (Dress): Mom’s outfit matches the leaves on the tree behind her—obviously we took these pictures about a month ago!
