Friday’s Fancies | Fresh Squeezed Limeade

Not only do I LOVE me some cherry limeade from Sonic {thanks to my sweet Southern co-workers during work training in Alabama one year} but I also adore lime in the wardrobe this Summer. I’m pretty sure I don’t actually own any lime currently, but if I went on a shopping spree for a fun, bright outfit, I’m about to show you what’d I’d get. I’m linking up with {av} over at {long distance loving} :)

Lime green reminds me of two things: the 90’s because it was one of my favorite colors. I even considered painting my entire room lime green. Thank you, Mom and Dad for talking me out of that one! It also reminds me of the 70’s. Hello go-go boots and polyester! So, I made a little 70’s-inspired modern outfit:

Fresh-Squeezed Limeade
 

I think lime green looks stellar paired with navy! Soooo, I picked some fun navy wide-legged pants that I can only wish would look good on little petite me! I found this dainty and adorable flower-child style blouse (which is only $11 right now! Amazing) that looks darling with the pants. Then, of course, it was all about lime green accessories with a splash of bling. Add some big retro sunglasses and you’ve got yourself a 70’s-chic outfit! Oh, and how can you not love the lime green quilted Chanel handbag?!

I think this is a fun and classy outfit that could be worn during the day while shopping and then later for dinner and a night out on the town!

When styled correctly, I truly think lime green can be beautiful! Luckily, neons are back in the fashion world! Does this mean I can paint my room lime green? Okay, maybe not… yet. ;)

Do you love adding splashes of bright colors to your outfits or are you more of a neutrals kind of girl and like to keep it simple? Or… am I the only secretly-lime-obsessed person out there? Maybe?

I love neons paired with navy... This combo is great. I also love neon pink with navy :)

So, sad story, I am sort of obsessed with cherry limeade chillers and apparently they don't make those anymore - at least they're not on the menu here. I made them specially make one for me but they said "We'll have to use real lime juice, is that okay?". Umm, yes! Do they not use real lime juice anyway?? This concerns me.

Gorge, Gorge, gorge ... I love flared, high waisted jeans. My favorite style ever . So classic and chic. That nail polish is so fun for summer.
