Wearing Lime Green

I've been trying to amp up my style a bit at work lately, and really, to just put a little more effort into what I wear. 

shirt — Old Navy (thrifted)
skirt — (thrifted)
boots — Chinese Laundry (DSW)
necklace — JC Penneys

This was a pretty straightforward outfit, but one that was still somewhat outside my comfort zone. Can you guess why? Hint ... it's not the length of my skirt (like here) or the height of my boots (like here).


Stumped? This time, it was the color of my shirt! You know, like the color of limes and Granny Smith apples? ... (Really wondering why my clothing choices these days remind me of food ...)


Lime green is definitely not a color that I typically wear. For one thing, it's a bit brighter than what I typically wear, especially during the mid-winter. And second, I always thought it was too much in the yellow family for a redhead. I'm thinking that I may have to revise that thinking.


Linking up to Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday, because

you can't really hide 
when you're stuck inside
so look real keen and wear lime green! 

LOL. (It's dorky things like that that keeps me more visible than I want to be ...)

  1. You look peachy in lime (sorry), and that's a cool little rhyme (sorry again). Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday! : >

  2. See, I think that green contrasts beautifully with red hair, so this looks terrific on you!

  4. I think the green looks wonderful on you. I don't know about you, but I have revised my opinions of how colors look on me by seeing my photos. It gives a different perspective and probably frees us from some of our negativity.

  5. It may be brighter that you are used to, but it is not THAT bright. In any case, it looks great. I am a redhead (well...a bottle one!), and this is the shade of green that looks best on me. Try it with navy or black and super rock it! (BTW, I just bought a bag that color as well, and sometimes go quite matchy-matchy on myself!)

  7. Green is an underused and underappreciated color. You look great in this outfit.

    Have fun during your time in New York!

  8. Lime is the coolest color~ Vastly underrated. don't assume that because you XYZ that you can't wear a color. Finding the right hue and saturation can make a world of difference. Embrace the brightness. It's totally cute!
