Color File: Shades of Jade

My favorite shade of green is Jade. Had to round up some faves I have spotted lately.....

1. Topshop 2. Smythson via Pinterest 3. Nico Necklaces 4. Old Navy 
5. Hunters (similar) 6. Max and Chloe 7. J. Crew

Inspired by.....

I miss the timeless style and classic beauty that inspired this photo. Women knew how to dress and Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn were the style icons you looked up to. I tend to think fashion peaked in their era. It seems a lot LESS fabric is worn now a days if you know what I mean.

I will be donning some 1920's wear this weekend for a murder mystery surprise. Will make sure a share the photo on the fan page ;) Happy Weekend!

  38. you're so right about that era, those ladies had it all going on and i love your inspired jade selects. i'm partial to greens too, my fave is kelly, especially with dark denim.

    no wonder your profile pic features this color, now i can see the whole story. an "ah-ha" moment of sorts. happy weekend, with loads of family time and fun at this wild sounding party! ♥
