Purple and Yellow

Normally, I save fashion posts for “Sartorial Saturday,” but today I want to take a moment to look at one of my favorite color combinations…purple and yellow (with a little grey thrown in for fun!):

This outfit was inspired by two things…my new purple peasant top from Pinup Girl Clothing, and the “Chasing Fireflies” brooch from Erstwilder. I knew I wanted to pair the top with something today, but I didn’t get the idea to combine it with my yellow house harlequin skirt until I looked at the colors in the brooch. As soon as I did, though, I realized how perfect the skirt would be with the top (and matching belt), and I had just the right accessories to make the outfit look intentional. Isn’t it funny that even though this was already one of my favorite color pairings, it wouldn’t have occurred to me to wear these pieces together until I got a little bit of inspiration from a brooch?
