Pantone Colors Fall 2016

  1. Hello My Lovelies! How are you all doing? I hope you’re all enjoying the (unofficial) beginning of Summer! Or as we call it in Michigan, Orange cone season lol! I am such a Summer Baby it isn’t even funny. Camping, Bonfires, Swimming, Gardening! I could go on & on. And I’ve missed you guys Soooo much! I’ve been fighting with my health these last couple months. And I’ll keep on fighting 😉. And I am so happy that I feel good enough to write again! ❤☝ And just in time too! Pantone recently released their Color Report for Fall 2016 & their Top 10 picks. And of course I’m in Love lol.

Pantone Top 10 Colors Fall 2016 – via Pantone.com

Riverside Blue, Airy Blue, Sharkskin Grey, Aurora Red, Warm Taupe, Dusty Cedar, Lush Green, Potter’s Clay, Spicy Mustard and Bodacious Lavender. *Sigh* They’re all so pretty. This is the first time since I started keeping up with Pantone that I can honestly say I really love all the colors on this list! I’ve liked the others for sure, but like a regular person would, there were a color or two that I thought were pretty but not my favorite. This list I’m just crushing over! 💖😍 Here are some Inspiration Boards for you to Swoon & Crush on….

For the last few months between NYFW 2015, The Holiday Season, Pantone Announcing their Color Reports & Colors of the Year for 2016, well to say the least, I’ve been crushing on lots & lots & lots of colors!

Then I finally just decided to show you instead lol 😉 I hope these inspire some color crushes of your own! Enjoy 🙂 ❤

Jean-Ralph Thurin ~ Spring 2016 Bridal Collection

Happy Saturday My Dears! Have I got a treat for you today! 😁❤ I came across a wedding gown designer of the most inspiring sort. Not only are Mr. Jean’s gowns totally to die for, but where he gets his inspiration for his collections is just so unique! I know most designers use different inspirations in their collections, but the ones Jean picks are just so different to me. For example, his current Fall 2015 collection was inspired by the delicate details of Fabergé Eggs. How unique is that? I love it! (if ya couldn’t already tell lol). That and a lot of times it is really hard to see the inspiration when looking at the gowns. But not here! I can honestly say the inspiration is very evident in these gorgeous creations :mrgreen:.
His newest Spring 2016 collection is inspired by all the different “Bond Girls” from the 007 James Bond series of movies. Soooo freaking awesome because I loooove James Bond movies! Daniel Craig, Shawn Connery & Eva Green~ Hello!! 💖💖💖 So get your Pinterest buttons warmed up….here we go!….

Ok. There ya have it. Some of the most beautiful women ever played Bond Girls. What an iconic concept for wedding gowns! I know a lot of women who would love to be a Bond Girl for day, I sure would lol. Plus the gowns are beyond gorgeous so that helps too 👌👌
I sure hope you enjoyed this post. See all you lovelies next time! Have a great rest of the weekend ! :):)💖💖♌

*New Feature* ~ Etsy Finds of the Week

🌻🌻 Hello my lovelies! I bring to you today a new feature for my blog – “Etsy Finds of the Week”. I am forever finding myself looking on Etsy.com. A lot of the time because I’m on Pinterest, pinning away, and I will click on a pin to find the source and so many many times I end up on Etsy.com. I’m sorta OCD about my pins saying the correct person or place they came from, for example, making sure the right designer of a wedding gown gets credit ect… Which in turn leads me to all sorts of little gems I wasn’t expecting to find! 😁
So I thought, If I’m already spending the time and effort into this, I might as well share them with all of you as well. So here is my first list of Etsy.com finds of the week!

This week I decided to showcase Pink, Blush & Floral Wedding Gowns. The popularity of the “not quite white” wedding dress is very evident on Etsy. Lots of Vintage & New options for anyone who dares to go pink. ~Just a word to the wise, be careful you don’t end up looking like your headed to Prom instead of your Wedding. It can be a pretty thin line (unless that’s what you want then of course totally Rock it! ❤) Hope you enjoy!

Pantone Colors of 2015 ~ Scuba Blue

Hello there my sweets! Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Tgif 😀 I was going through all my posts yesterday and noticed I haven’t done a “Pantone Color” post in a bit. So I thought I’d better get my bootie movin’ and get ’em done!
Looking at the Pantone colors from spring I thought the color that could go with a spring or summer wedding/event (and even fall or winter if done right) is Scuba Blue ~

image

~ via pantone.com

According to Pantone “An invigorating turquoise, Scuba Blue conveys a sense of carefree playfulness. Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy of Scuba Blue adds a splash of excitement to the palette.”  It is definitely one of my favorite colors. The ocean is a very special place to me. Even though I’ve only been there a few times, I am always instantly at peace when I’m by the ocean 🙂 This color reminds me of spring break & lazy summer days. I can really see why a lot of people would chose this color for their wedding. It is just a happy color for a very special, happy day!

If you’re thinking of a Beach or Tropical theme for your Big Day, this is the perfect color to use as the main focus. Here I used Pink, Purple, Gold, Yellow & Neutrals as accents to show how many different ways you can have a Beach/Tropical Theme without being boring:

Aren’t they so pretty? As you can see, even all these beach weddings can have a different vibe depending on how you use colors.
But this color isn’t just for the beach! I was happily surprised to see how versital it really is. As some of you know, Red is my all time favorite color! And when you put these 2 together you get instant Retro-Awesome! 🙂

image

image

How fun is that?? I loooove the red checker VW Bus! I could have made 10 boards with these colors easily lol. Even if you LOVE Red like me but don’t want to go “Retro”, this color combo can quite Elegant as well:

image

Aaaand Red can be used in a Beach theme too!

image

Now if you want a bright fun summer theme without the beach then I highly suggest Yellow ~

image

image

That embroidered gown in the top set is to die for! Isn’t it?!
Now last but of course never least. I put a few ideas together to show how this wowzzer of a color can be great for fall & winter as well. It’s definitely unique & that’s why I Love It! 💖💖

And there ya have it. Sucba Blue 🙂 As I think you can tell I reeeeeally like this color! I hope you all do now too! I’d love it if you could let me know your thoughts in the comments! Have a blessed day and see ya next time! Don’t forget ~ always add a little Dapper to your everyday. Peace ✌ 💖
