Fashion Fridays ~ COLOR!

I love color! What can I say it's the artist inside me. 

Pantone just released their color of the year, Honeysuckle.
 I get excited just saying the name. 
It conjures up for me the perfect pink, warm southern days, sunshine & sun dresses, flowers and sorbet. 
Random I know, but I think that's the meaning of "conjures" 

It's a fantastic color for fashion, that's for sure!  

The color of the year last year was turquoise.

A huge favorite of mine, so I'm pretty sure they're on target for this year as well. 

Here are some other colors I'm loving on right now: 




Pantone interviews top fashion designers at New York Fashion Week and complies into a report along with a sketch in one of the season's top fashion colors. See the entire report here.

The past 10 years of Pantone's Color of the Year:   

Which is your favorite year? 
My top 3 would be '09, '05 & '04 - not classic favorites of mine but I'm leaning towards bolder brighter colors this year. 
Plus who can beat the name Mimosa, I'm getting thirsty just saying it! 

What are some of your top colors for this year? 
For home? Fashion? Or just to gaze lovingly at?

  4. Such a beautiful post! I adore that color pink! Happy weekend :) xoxo

  5. Great posts! I love the new color for this year! I have been eying a Tibi dress that same color that I just might have to buy now "that it is the color of the year." I also love turquoise and orange! Have a great weekend! xoxo

  6. I wouldn't mind if Blue Iris made its way back!

    I don't have much bold pink in my closet and I'm not sure how willing I'll be to embrace it. However, it is a fun, punchy color for the year. And I'm looking that purple ring!
