The Color Wheel Dilemma

Ladies and Gentelmen……. the color wheel!

I remember learning in elementary school all about the color wheel. The primary colors, secondary, and tertiary. We also learned about complimentary colors. Blue and orange, red and green, and yellow and purple.  I always considered these colors a little bit gaudy and in your face combinations. Something used in a holiday (Christmas) or a sports team (Broncos). Recently I have seen the potential in these great combos. The key is, to not choose the same shade of each color. For example, bright grass green and apple red. Instead….. you go with one of my favorite color combos…. mint and red!

Now although this next outfit doesn’t have any bright bright red, I love the light mint, paired with the light coral. PS LOVE THIS BLOG! http://www.theblondesalad.com/
