For a long time, blue and green was one of those color combinations I was a bit iffy on. Why? Because, when I was younger, I read a book in which a girl sat her blue-wearing rival on a green couch because she knew that the green paired with the blue would look “ghastly.” I was fairly impressionable as a child, so, for years, I thought that blue and green didn’t pair well. As it turns out, that’s totally not a thing:
Although, for that era, it might have totally *been* a thing. Just as certain colors gain and lose popularity as time goes by, I’m sure certain color combinations do too. Or, maybe it has to do with the shades of blue and green being paired. I’m hard-pressed to imagine any color blue doesn’t go with, but, then again, I am admittedly biased towards blue.
Just to be safe though, I did pair this green dress with a scarf that not only contains blue, but also blue-green:
And I made sure to pair the scarf with a dress that has side-buttons:
What do the side buttons have to do with it? Nothing, I just like buttons.
And I like blue and green together:
No matter what that old book said.
How about you, Reader Friends? Are there any color combinations you shy away from? And if so, why?
Thanks for reading, All!
