Fresh Color Combos + Inspiration

I've developed quite the reputation for wearing color amongst my friends, family and coworkers. I'm always on the lookout for new ideas and inspirations for wearing color. Because, I can only preach about coral and navy so much. :)

Here are a few nature-inspired color combinations I'm obsessed with lately...

flora brights
Shades of blue + orange  + teal

Blue + yellow + green

Shades of blue + teal + pop of purple
To incorporate these into an outfit, don't feel like you have to use ALL of the colors in the palette. Stick with 3 (maybe 4 for advanced color lovers) and use the most neutral of the colors as the most dominant. So, if we're using the palette directly above, you maybe choose to use one of the gray colors as your primary color or maybe the dark blue. Then incorporate the teal/turquoise and maybe the purple. Something like either of the below might work:
The first outfit, which is sort of a work look, uses gray and dark teal as a base. Lighter teal and magenta or pinkish/purple accessories help to pull it off.
The second look, more of a casual one, pairs a gray tee with dark blue/teal jeans. The pop of pinkish/purple comes from the head scarf, sunnies and the jade necklace.
I didn't incorporate EVERY SINGLE color in the palette, but allowed it to guide me in my color choices. For example, the dark teals or grays I used in the outfits aren't the exact same color as in the inspiration palette, but it's close enough. It's an INSPIRATION, not a copy-cat.
Have you ever been inspired to wear a unique color combination before?
