Inspiration: Orchid and Olive

Rob and I got stuck in the mission last night with a friend from Atlanta. A sudden rainstorm made taxis impossible to find. We ended up walking in the cold rain (our friend was only in a t-shirt) to the Bart station and managed to get him back to his hotel only halfway drenched. We warmed up with three shots of Patron at a bar next door before catching a cab home.

Anyway, it was actually really warm earlier this week before it got all cold and rainy. And when it is warm in the city, our resident’s dress with some serious flair. I saw a cute interior designer waiting for the bus wearing a purple dress and olive green jacket similar to this outfit and was instantly inspired.

What a fantastic color combination! I wonder if I could use this for wedding colors without it being too dark?

    I don’t think it would be that dark at all if you used white to lighten it up. They are very pretty colors together and would make stunning flowers…

    Love that color combo.

    p.s. that was me honking at you and Rob on 14th this morning.

    I love those colors! I think I’m a child of the Benetton age – I love the combo of all shades of green with purple and navy.

    Ha! I’m glad to hear it was you honking! We were kind of confused 🙂
