Peaches and wine?

Unique color combinations are my favorite.

InStyle magazine (which I used to read regularly, because I also used to live at the beach and had an excuse to read magazines…sigh), always has a feature color which they show paired with some different hues. Three of the paired colors are normal; everyone would think to do those combos. But, then they throw in a “wild card pairing”, and it is always my favorite combination. There are some colors that just DO. NOT. GO. TOGETHER. But, really, I think that list is much smaller than we have been led to believe.
Do you have some unusual color combos you like to wear? Another I think of frequently is orange and blue – thank you, Florida Gators, for making these colors socially acceptable to wear together, because really, in the right shades, they can be quite lovely.

Happy Wednesday, y’all!


  1. Ironically enough, Sarah Beth, orange and blue are our theme colors for the library that I work for. Every time they give us library paraphernalia, it comes in either one or both of these colors.

    And on top of that, these two colors can totally go together, because orange is the opposite of blue on the color wheel, like red and green are opposites. They don’t clash as much as some people think. They compliment each other more than anything in most cases. Like you said, with the right shades, they can look pretty awesome. 🙂

      I’m glad you agree, Mike! 🙂

      • Absolutely! Color theory is so interesting to study. From an artists’ point of view, it’s amazing how well different colors work together. 🙂
