Killer Color Combo: Periwinkle Blue and Scarlet Red

Killer Color Combo: Blue and Red

Confession: I get obsessed about one color for a week and then completely forget about it and get distracted with another color the next week. Last week, for example, all my Instagram pictures had something red! I made a centerpiece with red roses, I bought a new lipstick called “Who Wore It Red-Er” and even painted my nails in a tropical red tone.

On Sunday I did not  not want to put aside the fun of this vibrant hue so I wore a periwinkle blue blouse and added a couple of scarlet red touches. The beautiful bracelet is from Red Buffalo Trading, an online store with handmade accessories from different Chinese rural areas. Isn’t it beautiful? I also tried a new nail color called “Watermelon” from Essie, it looks amazing and matched the bracelet!

These shades of blue and red are a lovely combination. I’ve seen them a couple of times working together in decoration, like here and here, a blue wall with red accessories, is quite pretty. The nearly neutral blue balances the energy of the red and creates a surprising effect.

What color have you been using a lot lately?

    So pretty! Blue and red are a great combo! I get obsessed with certain colors for a time as well! Sometimes I can’t stop wearing purple, sometimes blue, sometimes black, etc.
