I was worried that with the limited color palette of my 30 for 30 list, I might miss other fun color parings.  But then I remembered my scarf and belt collections!

And, the pop of purple certainly would have sufficed.  But, the mix of deep purple, midnight blue, and teal layered over the brown and grey just takes this otherwise simple weekend outfit to the next level.
