Sage Green – The Wise Choice To Brighten A Neutral Palette

When I think of ‘sage’ I think of the herbaceous refrain in Simon & Garfunkel’s version of Scarborough Fair… and chicken. But in recent times, I’ve been noticing a recurring theme in the images I’ve been pinning to my Pinterest boards.

How Introducing These Two Tones Into My Wardrobe Has Overhauled The Way I Dress

I’ve been talking a lot about shades and tones recently – partly because my wardrobe is now so heavily reliant on neutrals so any change or introduction of a new shade is a BIG THING!
