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

Quote of the day: “Don’t count the day done until you’ve made the day count.” Dr. Thom C. Gibson

 By this time in our lives, we should most likely have every color represented in our closet, right?  But I find this not the case.  We tend to buy the same colors either because that’s what we like, it’s what looks good on us or that’s what’s available when we go shopping.  Case in point…I was inspired by my mom’s outfit with her lime green t-shirt and light blue jacket (here) to put together and present this color combination series!  However, did I have any lime green in my closet?  No…not even a scarf.  Crazy, I know.  So, bummer for me, I had to go shopping! First in the series, is pairing this lively color with white since white is a fun, summer neutral.

50’s Lime Green: I was actually on the hunt for a lime green scarf originally, but I found this shirt and loved it. I had to take it in under the armholes, but other than that, it was perfect!

  • Kathleen McDermott

    I like the other lime green looks, but these I love – every one of them and every detail. My unhealthy jealousy of Charlotte’s skin is growing.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You really know how to make me laugh Kathleen!! Unhealthy jealous!! Hilarious!!

  • Jess

    Love all 3 outfits, I especially like how you styled it with the white top underneath and the pretty skirt!
