Peacock + Navy, A Blue Story

While we mourn the loss of the Olympics {ahem, 4 hours a night of shirtless male swimmers that classifies as patriotism}, a final red, white & blue post.

There are certain color palettes that catch our eye at a time of year because of a holiday {red & green at Christmas}. But if I hadn't said anything about the Olympics, you would never have tracked on this outfit as being red, white & blue as in 4th of July.

Remember that just because you associate colors with something, doesn't mean that anyone else does. {Blue & orange are a great color combo, even if your miserable ex-boyfriend is an Auburn alum.} And if you want to think outside the box, play with the hue of a color. Royal blue & cherry red say USA but peacock, navy, & poppy say hello cute outfit 12 months a year.
