The Perfect Summer Palette

Aren't these two colors, aqua + yellow, beautiful together? And especially appropriate for the summertime! The yellow references the warm sun and the aqua makes me think of the ocean...my two favorite things about this time of year!

They're neighbors on the color wheel and the perfect complement to each other. The aqua is sort of calming, while the yellow makes me feel energized and young! Definitely a color combination I am going to experiment with this season!


Hope you all had a lovely (holiday) weekend and that your week is off to a great start!

Nice, I like the combo and your picture collage is great. I actually am wearing a purple print with yellow flats and I am loving the combo with navy too. Maybe I should keep my eye out for an aqua maxi dress to wear with the shoes this summer as well!
