How To Style Lime Green | With Black & White & Denim

How to Style Lime Green | With Black & White & Denim
I wore this the other day and was talking to someone about the Woman & Home photo shoot that I featured last week - I described the lime green top that the stylist picked out for me and how it was a colour that I'd never normally wear myself. To which she replied "what - like the colour you're wearing now"? Er - yes... oops. But this sweater is a yellow-green, and that top was a real greeny lime green... oh, who am I kidding?!

The Thomas Wylde skull scarf that was a bit of a must-have item a few years back hadn't seen the light of day for a while, so as it's still not over warm in the UK yet I wore that to keep my neck warm and to pattern mix a bit with the stripes of my Breton top. The black and white tones down the acid yellow a little (yep, it's yellow now...), and with dark denim its garishness doesn't seem so in-your-face. Not that it bothers me - I'd pair it with turquoise and candy pink if the mood took me...!


I've had a look for the scarf on eBay and it's being sold for anything between $104 and $350(!) - so it seems that was a pretty good investment I made at the time. Do you have any statement pieces or accessories that have proved to be a great investment? If so what are they and what are they now worth? Do share in the comments!

  4. I don't think I can look at your blog anymore as it is becoming a real detriment to my bank balance! I just ordered those black peep toes from LULU's! Damn it!

  5. As it happens, chartreuse has been one of my most favourite colours for many years, dear Catherine!! We have pops of it brightening our all-white kitchen...and my newest blog look tomorrow will have some hints of it, too!! Your sweater looks amazing the way you've paired it with a black and white striped tee just peeking out - and your skull motif scarf!! And, of course, those shoes...I think my footwear obsession has become that much more intense since my accident (if that's even possible!!) XO

    1. I love the irony in that something that's a bit morbid (skulls) make someone happy - but I think that's great! Thanks hun x

  11. Great... This really appeals to me: black and white and yellow on jeans. My kinda girl. The hat is different from your usual hats and suits you as well.
    Yes I have items that have proved to be really good: very expensive Sergio Rossi black peep toe shoes. What they are worth? Nothing I suppose, but they were definitely worth the investment.
