Red for Spring!

Ah yes my lovlies! This is a blog post with my favor-ite color in the world! I have loved it my whole life! Oh sure, I love lots of colors, all colors in fact. Color crushes come & go but my true love for the color of Love has never faded. And since Christmas & Valentine’s Day have come & gone,  everyone is looking ahead to Spring and all the lush pretty pastels. Which I love as well. But it seems I’m having some major red withdrawal. So I implore you all to not leave gorgeous red behind as we dive into Spring. Don’t wait for Summer to bring back the beauty of red hues. After all, Pantone Fiesta is a color for Spring 2016. Got it? Ok? Good! 😆 Here are some ways to incorporate red into your next Springtime Soiree & A lil bit of Dapper for your day. Peace! ✌💋❤😆❤

Pantone Color(s) of the Year 2016

Hello my lovelies!  I am really excited to bring to you The 2016 Colors of the Year from Pantone! You read that right! Colorsssss! For the 1st time since they started picking a “Color of the Year” (which was in 2000) the powers at be have decided on Two colors of the year.
Rose Quartz & Serenity

And I for one couldn’t be happier!

Aren’t they both just gorgeous??

When they announced the top 10 colors for Spring 2016 I was immediately drawn to both colors. They were my 2 favs besides Fiesta. Red is always #1 with me lol. And then when Pantone made the announcement for “Colors of the Year” , I could swear I heard the sound of wedding lovers everywhere squeal with delight! It’s the first time since 2006’s “Sand Dollar” that they’ve picked an actual pastel color. I’m already having a blast making a ton of inspiration boards lol 🙂 Also the nod to gender equality is pretty awesome! I had a feeling Rose Quartz might be color of the year, especially given all the pink & blush color wedding gowns that are out there now. And pastel blue isn’t too far behind.
So what do y’all think ~ Love it or Leave it? Is 2 colors of the year too many? Or do you like more choices? I said it before & I’ll probably keep on saying it, one thing for sure is 2016 is going to be awesomely gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what all those talented lovelies cook up for our eye candy fix! 😀 Here’s some pretties to help you decide which one you love ❤
