{Outfit Inspiration} Peacock Blue & Green

I love color combinations that occur in nature…there’s something so perfect and unforced about them. Take the peacock for instance:


Normally, pairing two such vibrant shades that are adjacent on the color wheel would be a little over the top. But the peacock wears it well, as do these two beautiful rooms.

How gorgeous is this blue and green tablescape?

My outfit interpretation is quite literal, seeing as how I’m wearing an actual peacock patterned top:

blue green

I broke up the vibrancy of the top and bright skirt with a wide brown belt since I went with a bolder green shoe….and also since I was at work and not a party!

I think wearing this outfit to the Peacock themed party might be a leeeettle over the top though, don’t you think?
