Modern Day Cinderella | Chartreuse and Gray

March 11, 2014
A modern day Cinderella? Sounds like a fairytale to me. And what does every fairytale need in order to be complete? Oh, you know - just an amazingly gorgeous gown worthy of a princess. But a chartreuse gown? Can't say that I've ever seen one of these!

Want to know whats' funny? This color actually tends to remind me a lot of my first year of blogging. It was back in 2009 and for some reason I had a huge color crush on this shade. (Happy 5 years of blogging to me by the way! Can you believe I've been blogging for 5 whole years? Time sure does fly when you're having fun!).

Anyways, I couldn't get enough of this color. I was a chartreuse fan all the way. Look back at some of my earlier palettes and you'll see that this color pops up a lot. And for good reason! Like I said, I was quite captured by it. And I'm not sure why really.

Perhaps it's because this color embodied Spring like no other? Or perhaps I liked how well modern motifs seemed to mix with this beauty of a color? Or more simply, maybe I just liked how bright and punchy this color is?

I’m not sure if I speak purely for myself here or whether some of you all feel the same - but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I really wish this color would start making more appearances in weddings. A chartreuse comeback, maybe? I think it's especially pretty for Spring. Because, seriously. I can think of like 10 ideas right now that would work so well for this palette. What do you think? Are you seeing the possibilities?

Happy Blogiversary! That gown is amaze! I tend to shy away from brights but the pairing with the neutrals works for me! Chartreuse and gold might be interesting too!
