Colorblocking orange + teal

I am trying to be more adventurous with color — blogging about my personal style journey has definitely helped in that regard — and I’ve realized lately that one of my recent favorites is combining orange and teal. I cannot remember having orange in my wardrobe before this past spring. This is thanks to Sam, who insisted I finally try orange with this Old Navy gingham camp shirt (shopping details here). It also helps that he says, “You’re so cute!” every time I wear that shirt. 🙂

Here are some more ideas for combining orange and teal.

Colorblocking also doesn’t always mean combining solid colors — why not throw in some stripes or gingham or interesting details like pleats? And an easy way to try out a new color is with nail polish (like I did with the mint trend) or an accessory like hair clips or a belt (like I did with neon pink).

And here are some of my recent outfits combining orange and teal:

      Thanks so much, Rachel! I used to never wear orange until my husband basically made me buy that orange gingham camp shirt (but to be fair, it’s not like he had to twist my arm or anything… I mean, when the hubby is on board with shopping, I say go with it while it lasts!). I just had never thought orange looked that good on me, but I am loving THIS orange. And the teal just makes everything pop! 🙂
