I just love when colours have pretty names.  I would have described the Nepali by TDM Design scarf I’m wearing as purple and lime green, but they so much more eloquently describe it as African Violet and Tendershoot.

 

Nepali by TDM Design works with women in Nepal to hand craft all of their beautiful scarves using the most luxurious fabrics.  Not only do they create gorgeous pieces, but they also provide their team in Nepal with above average compensation, access to healthcare and full scholarships for their children to attend school.  It feels so wonderful to support an organization that strives to make a difference and better the world we live in.

 

Nepali by TDM Design has offered all of you 25% off their gorgeous scarves with the code CRAZYSTYLELOVE!

    Ah this color combo is AMAZING. I’m not one for scarves but I may have to reconsider because that scarf is gorgeous and really completes the look.

    Ooh, these colors are gorgeous together! Love how vibrant and fun this is! I’ve been so drawn to light limes/neon yellows/chartreuse type colors lately, though you’re right, tendershoot sounds so much nicer!

    • Jenny
      June 13, 2013

      Thanks so much, Kate! I totally agree, I really love this shade of green/yellow (limes, chartreuse, citrons). It feels so summery! 🙂

    Great combo and I would call these colors purple & lime green too. Not something I would have thought to put together but the scarf ties it so well.

    Gorgeous mix of colors. I’ve been eyeing lime colors lately, and I have to say that dress would be a perfect addition to my closet. And that scarf is absolutely gorgeous – happy to know that it’s going towards a good cause!

      Thanks Becky! The beauty of this scarf is that it’s lightweight, so it’s perfect for all year round. I’m always cold in the summer so I often bring a scarf to work to put on my shoulders or around my neck when I’m freezing from the air conditioning. 🙂

    Well hey there beautiful!! I recently just bought a yellow dress and never thought to mix purple with it. I love how much you mix color – it’s like your trademark! This is such a pretty color combo and look. And that dress looks so versatile! xo

    • Jenny
      June 13, 2013

      Ha ha ha, yes, colour should be my trademark. 🙂 I do wear a lot of it! 🙂 Thank you so much Lauren! 🙂

  • Louise
    June 14, 2013

    I think this is what first struck me when I stumbled across your blog all those months ago – like me, you aren’t afraid of colour and mixing really bright colours at the same time. I remember going all the way back to your first post through your archives and marvelling at all the colour. I hate black, it bores me so I love when other people look so bright and cheerful!

    • Jenny
      June 16, 2013

      Hahaha, I definitely do not shy away from colour. 🙂 I do love an all black outfit, however, I really feel much better wearing colour. Thank you so much Louise for your constant and wonderful support. 🙂
