I never liked pink and blue together until I saw this palette! I could actually see myself wearing it along with that tan shade :)

I just finished a Chantilly dress that’s pink with blue flowers. Planning on wearing it this weekend with a blue hat – was wondering if this was a weird pallette but now I feel vindicated!

The top photos actually look more peachy/salmony – in other words – orangey, which of course, goes beautifully with blue as it is its opposite on the color wheel! I love the combo!

You are not helping. I was thinking about pink and blue for Sonja, but am afraid. Was falling back on a moss green with a sand color. I am never going to get this dress made, because I am never going to decide on a color combination.
