Blimey!

Feeling a wee bit Irish in this bright lime green.  I really loved this lime green/black scarf when I spotted it a week or so ago while thrifting.  It worked perfectly with the blouse and sweater I already had.  I got these new black jeans that day also.  I actually bought 2 pair of black jeans because I needed a smaller size than the ones I'd tried to alter. I liked both pair I tried on and they were a good price.  When I got home I realized I had another pair with tags still attached in the proper size hanging in my closet that I'd thrifted quite a while back and had forgotten about.  Oops.  Now I have 4 pair of black jeans! :O  I'll get rid of the larger pair I altered though.  You may be seeing quite a lot of black jeans in my outfits posts. haha
Next I need to search for some new white jeans and slacks.

Oh...and I ended up wrapping this scarf around rather than leaving it hanging like this.  I think the wrapped effect looked nicer, but I did not get photos.

    1. Hi, Tracey. And as per my usual thrifting habit...it was totally unplanned. Didn't realize it until I got home. Of course, when you have truckloads of thrifted clothing some things are just bound to match though, right? haha

  3. Lisa, I love black & lime! Very chic!
    I don't think you can have too many black pair of jeans/slacks. They're my go to pants....when in doubt, pair black pants/jeans with just about anything and it will work! You look GREAT!

    1. Thanks, Jeannie. :) I like each of them and I know I'll wear them so at first it was a "duh" moment and then "oh well". Like you say...black jeans/pants are a good go to.

  8. GREAT outfit. Really, really good, and flattering to boot. Speaking of boots... love these. You keep coming up looking smashing in colors I never would think you could wear. It's all in the tone, isn't it? So pretty.
