The snow is finally gone! I am so excited. It is finally starting to feel like Winter is ending. There has not been much to do outside, so last week I went shopping. I went to forecast a little, and to shop a little. 😉 If you’ve gone out shopping the past few weeks you might have picked up on a color that is displayed in the window of many retail stores. When I went shopping last weekend, I knew what color I was looking for, and the stores seemed to know too… BLUSH PINK. This color just so happened to be Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2016, and they call it ROSE QUARTZ. This color is big, and going to be big. As I mentioned, every store has it on display already, so it won’t be hard to find and add to your closet. I saw Blush Pink on everything from bags, to pants, to dresses, and tops. The key to wearing this color is to wear it with other blush or pastel colors. I am wearing it in my photos with light blue jeans and a light gray sweater. I then added some pearl jewelry to give it more of a softer look as well. I would also suggest wearing this color with white. White jeans for example would be perfect. It is a total myth that you cannot wear white after labor day. That rule does not exist anymore. White and pale pink are the perfect combination. Now if you want to go for a more edgier look, I suggest wearing all black, and letting the blush pink stand out.
Pantone also introduced a second color for the year called Serenity, which happens to be light blue with hints of violet in it. Go to this link to see a visual of what I’m talking about. It displays both Rose Quartz and Serenity!

So if you are looking to add something to your wardrobe that is in style and on trend for this Spring, make sure it is some form of apparel or bag in this color! As I mentioned before, it won’t be hard to find. Stores are already catching on. All you have to figure out is what exactly you want to purchase in this color. I opted for a bag, but you can choose what you like best! Lastly, if you notice a sour face in any of these photos I apologize! While the snow had melted and I was super excited, it happened to be extremely windy, so I could not control my reactions when the wind hit me hard in the face. But again, on the plus side, the snow has subsided! I am so ready for Spring and Summer. Hopefully you are too. I cannot wait to wear shorts and bask in the sun. The snow is still gone, so I hope you get to go outside and enjoy some of the weather today! Happy Tuesday!
