Color Combo Crush: Burnt Orange and Army Green

June 11, 2014
Like many of the military folks here in the DC area, I commute wearing civilian clothes.  For me, it's a chance to actually wear something from my extensive wardrobe, and I also feel like I don't stand out like a sore thumb (in camouflage) quite so much.  I recently commuted in a pair of the army green Andie Pants from J.Crew (amazing pants, by the way), a striped shirt, and brown Tory Burch sandals.  As I was changing into my uniform at work, I realized that my orange toenails looked really neat next to the army green.  I liked this color combo so much, in fact, I was inspired to see if I could create a fun and unique color palette for a room.  Here 's my stab at combining orange and army green...a funky yet totally doable color combo.  I feel like any outfit or room would look great in orange and green paired with light khaki, white linen, cork or wood!  Do y'all like it as much as I do?  I'd totally try this out on a room if I wasn't so hooked on pinks and blues!  Maybe one day I'll get out of my comfort zone and try a funky new color combo...until then, I guess I'll just write about it and dream.

  3. Green and orange are two of my absolute favorite colors, but putting them together can be difficult sometimes. I think you totally nailed it! This is fabulous!
