Olive Green for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With Melon

Quote of the day: “Happiness is like a kiss…you must share it to enjoy it.” Anonymous

The last post in our olive green series had to be different. So, I went with a melon color. Of course, melon is a color that really depends on your perspective. Is it peach, orangish, or pinkish? My outfit tends to be on the pinker side, while Nancy’s is more goldish (at least in these pictures). But, no matter….they all add a nice lightness to the subdued olive green. These same green items got styled with red (here) and animal prints (here).

50’s Olive Green (Pants): When I purchased this necklace it was all gold. I just painted over the gold pieces with fingernail polish to give it some excitement!

60’s Olive Green (Jacket): A jacket is a perfect solution to throw on over a t-shirt and look more pulled together, don’t you think?

70’s Olive Green (Dress): In this post, I tried covering up the gold beads on the dress to give it a little change in appearance! See scarves are more than just pretty—they are also functional!

    I hit the LOVE button on these 3 outfits in a split second. Never liked olive or army green before. Now love in pants and as accent color. If it has a grey or blue undertone as opposed to yellow (deadly on my cool, half-Irish complexion), I love it in jackets and tops too. Wonderful with so many shades. Charlotte’s dress 👗 lovely! Your necklace – Wow! At first I thought you’d touched up the gold (smart), but then realized you added the 3 colors (brilliant!). Thanks for this GREAT idea!

    Do I spy a 🐰 on Charlotte’s scarf?

      I think my mom’s scarf is just florals—but I couldn’t be sure, Kathleen!
      I’ve definitely been adding to my olive green collection in these last couple of years! It really seems like such a great neutral!
      This necklace has been sitting in my jewelry box and getting no attention lately—I was just thinking that maybe I needed to paint it some other colors!! I’ve done that with a pair of earrings too—and it seems to work marvelously!!

  • Ooooh, I love that idea of using the nail polish. I’d never have know – the necklace looks great with the differing colours. A simple, yet clever idea.
    Love all the shades of melon. And Nancy’s earrings are lovely.

      Thanks Jacqueline!! I’m sure I read about the fingernail polish trick on pinterest….because I doubt I’m that smart!!!

  • How clever you are to paint the necklace with nail polish! Of course, the only nail polish I own is black…

      Really? I’m happy to share mine!!!
