olive + orchid

DSC_5618I have this bad habit of getting stuck in color palettes. For example, I tend to pair cobalt with black + white only; I wear burgundy with cognac + gold. Another color rut I’ve fallen into is olive with black and/or brown. It’s totally neutral and totally appropriate for fall…but it can be a bit boring.

DSC_5608So this time around, I tried spicing things up at least a little bit by adding a vibrant “orchid” scarf. I think I may have stumbled on a new favorite combination–I think the olive + orchid look pretty great together. What colors do you like to wear with olive green?
