Crushing Combo

Photobucket

Photobucket


Ever since I first laid eyes on the living room above in Rue I've had a major thing for this color combo. Cobalt & marigold and while you're at it throw in a little camel too. Isn't it just so striking and inviting? And now, thanks to The Sartorialist it is now a full on, no turning back, head over heels crush!

Unfortunately my wardrobe seems to be severely devoid of these colors, minus the camel, of course. Heading out the door to shop as we speak :)

What do you guys think? Are you loving it as much as I am? Any other color combos you're crushing over these days?

I DO love the combination very much. I have a scarf that shares that color combination, and I love it. Would love a yellow bag to bring it all together of course!

Have fun shopping.

Great and warm combination that works very well in lots of situations. I've a lot of dark blue but almost no yellow, as much as I love the color it doesn't fit the tone of my skin (too pale). So that leaves this kind of yellow to be an accessory color, which is great too of course;) Hope you find some things pretty:)

Dawn - I have been obsessing over this combo too - it is a great combination while we are in this inbetween winter and spring season. Still fitting for the cold, yet hopeful for spring to come soon!
Much love,

I love the idea, but my wardrobe is also lacking these colours - especially yellow which is a colour that actually frightens me; but I guess it's time to get over the fear! xoxo

I had never really given this combo a thought, but find myself loving it. It's so warm and soothing. I am now getting back to blogging full time and am trying to do lots more with the blog. Thanks for your beautiful comment on my last post. it has been a difficult time, but I am done with mourning. Grief, now that's a different thing altogether. But for now, I am good.
