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.

    All pretty and cheerful looks. But, I am so jealous of Charlotte’s skin. I want it. And her neck. Now. You 2 must have freakishly good genes!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I can’t tell you how glad I am you said this Kathleen!! I’ve been trying to tell my mom how good her skin looks, but she tends to only see the bad points!!
      Now maybe she’ll take it to heart since you said it!! 🙂
