Purple for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Paired with Green

Quote of the day: “The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” Anonymous

Since our themed color purple is a cool color on the color wheel, pairing it with another cool color is a good recipe for success. I have to admit, it’s not a combination I see put together much, but then that’s what makes it more fun!  Funny, how both Nancy & I used an olive green for our green! The first color combination that was shown in the beginning of the series was purple & grey (here).

50’s Purple: Back when we first got married, Rob would buy me jewelry quite often. This necklace is one of his gifts! Then I kaboshed that habit…where would I keep it all otherwise?

Blazer: Marciano (similar here in beige)~~Pants: Banana Republic (similar here)~~Top: Loft (similar here)~~Shoes: ShoeDazzle (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)

60’s Purple: Even a small scale necklace looks nice against the bright shirt. Since it’s still considerably warm outside, Nancy is taking advantage of the weather by still wearing sandals. 

Shirt: Dressbarn (similar here)~~Pants: Sonoma (similar here)~~Cardigan: Charlotte (similar here)~~Sandals: Kelly & Katie (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)

    I have never paired purple and green together and it looks wonderful on all 3 of you! I just don’t own much of these 2 colors because I am always stump on color pairings.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you Thursday.

    • I’m not sure I would’ve paired these colors together before starting this blog…I feel like I’ve certainly gotten more adventurous in my clothing choices!! (and I’m glad) Thanks for the nice words Alice!!

  • Hey not sure if my other comment got sent … geez I need a weekend ….

  • Silly story, but as a little girl I made up a song about purple and green and ever since I’ve been a big fan! 😀 All the ladies are looking pretty! Thanks so much for being a part of the Fun Fashion Friday link up party!

    • Sing it…I’d love to hear how creative you were as a little girl!!!!

  • I love green and purple together. It is soothing but not boring.

    • Hmmm….I never thought of the combo as soothing, but you’re so right!!!

  • I love all the different shades of green you highlighted from olive to teal. I love your Mum’s bracelet – that’s beautiful. I love that dark teal shade. Perfect for the coming season.

  • Hi Jodie,
    Visiting from Mid-life bloggers on FB 🙂 Great outfits 🙂 Love the jewelry !! Thanks for sharing!!

  • I had a purple phase, but I still love it. It’s my partner’s favorite color. I love the combinations with green. Gorgeous models you got. 🙂
    I love mixing up colors.
    Thanks for sharing it.

    • Thanks Debbie!! It’s funny how colors can bring up remembrances (like your phase!!).

  • I LOVE your Mom’s bracelet! Wow!

    Really like your little blazer too.

    I love purple, but deep rich purple. Also pairing it with green is wonderful.

    bisous

    • An old friend of mine is a red head and she had a majority of purple in her closet…must be normal?

  • Great combos! Love both colors, but wear green mostly 🙂

    • I love green too (although I really love all colors) and to prove it my bedroom has green walls!!! I actually thought of this combo because I had a valence hanging in the bedroom that had lilac with the green!!

  • I really like this color combination. Who knows, you might just sway me to the purple side!

    • I think if you get a good shade, you’ll like it….just keep the images of “Barney” out of you head!!!

  • You all look elegant and beautiful as usual! Would never have put those colors together but they look really good. Maybe I need to be more adventurous!

    • I’ve only gotten adventurous since starting this blog…I used to be so professional & boring!! But life’s too short, right?
