I just love these shades together! You almost don’t need any other color to go with it. But, of course, you know I just had to put a couple posh purple palettes together as well lol.

Pantone Colors for Fall 2015

     Hi there my beauties 🙂 I hope you’re all having a great week so far. I’ve been doing well. My granddaughter’s Birthday was on Monday so I got to spend the day with all of them. I just can’t believe she is already 4 yrs old. Smh lol. Seems like her momma was just turning 4 lol.

Doesn’t she just melt your heart!? 💖💖
Sorry, I just can’t help myself lol.
Oh! Yes, and a bit of good news ~ the wedding photos are in! So I will be posting them very soon 🙂

Alrighty then! Now let’s get to the reason y’all are reading this shall we?
Recently Pantone released their color picks for Fall 2015. As some of you know, I’ve been blogging about the Spring Colors for 2015, so I thought why not add the new ones in as well? I was pretty excited when I saw them. I think Pantone did a fabulous job picking some beautiful colors that transition really well with their Spring picks. And here they are….

See? I think they’re all lovely. And don’t freak out if you picked a “Spring” color(s) for your Summer/Fall wedding either. As you can see, the Fall palette has slightly deeper hues than Spring but that doesn’t mean you have to only use them for the season they’re released.  Especially if you’re picking Marsala (color of the whole year). You could throw in a Fall shade with your Spring ones for a bit of added depth. Or use a Spring to brighten up a Fall palette! When I saw these colors I seriously squealed with million combos running through my head! I found myself instantly drawn to Amethyst Orchid, Biscay Bay, Cashmere Rose, Reflecting Pond and Stormy Weather. They’re all so pretty!

I think I will do a blog on each of those as well as finish up the Spring ones I have for you. Hopefully this helps some of you get an idea or two for the big day you’re planning! Honestly that is the reason I started this blog. Your color palette and theme are one of the very first decisions you HAVE to make in the planning, it can be so overwhelming. Seeing ideas in photos and having color guides to use make things a bit more tolerable! 🙂
So what were your favorite color(s) for the Fall 2015? Let me know in the comments! It would help me out so much! Are there any other color or color combos you’d like to see a blog on? I’d be happy to help put your ideas into pics you can look at 🙂
I hope y’all have a great rest of the week & I’ll see you next time.

Dapper Inspiration Daily ~ Bold Pastels Edition

Hello my sweets! Hope you all had an awesome day 🙂 Happy April 1st. Today’s inspiration comes from the makeup world. Maybeline’s new Rebel Bloom Lipstick. I haven’t tried it yet, but I am going to. The colors look sort of neon-ish, like from the 1980’s. That’s probably why I’m drawn to them now that I think about it lol. Anyways, here is a couple inspiration boards for you. See ya next time 🙂

Pantone Wedding Color Inspiration 2015 Part 1

image

Hello all! How was your weekend? Mine was Fantabulous!! I spent Saturday with my oldest picking out her wedding gown & cake! I’m still on cloud 1000 lol! I’d love nothing more than to post tons of pics, but I decided that would be best left until After the actuall wedding. (Don’t want someone seeing things they’re not supposed too) It is Her big day. So Mommy is trying very hard to let it be All hers  🙂 I will say she has the greatest fashion sense so I know anything she picks is going to be fabulous.

Since this blogging thing is pretty new to me, I figured I might start things off by doing a series on the list of wedding colors by Pantone for 2015. If you don’t know, Pantone is THE color expert supreme. Every designer worth their salt follow their “Color Reports” every season, and they also pick One “Color of the Year” (aka the “it” color). The big name designers also vote on it too, which I think is really cool. You can see for yourself at pantone.com if you’d like :). So if you’re trying to figure out what colors you want for your Big Day, it is a great reference guide. And if you already know your colors, but are in a planning rut or don’t know what colors coordinate with your main choice, maybe this will be the inspiration you need! I hope this helps. To start things off is Pantone’s color of the year ~ Marsala.

image

I was so happy when Pantone announced the color of the year. Mostly because my fav color on the planet is Red lol. So, anything red will pretty much make my day. This shade is named for the color of the wine whose roots are in Italy. It’s a beautiful deep shade that is pretty versatile. I don’t think the color swatch pantone used for it is very flattering unfortunately. It is such a pretty color when you see it applied in real life.

See? Isn’t it gorgeous? According to Pantone Marsala is ” Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade” and ” Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty.”  It is great to use as your main foucus.

And of course, don’t forget the guys

It adds such a warm mood & tone to any setting. If your taste doesn’t lean towards the darker side of the color wheel, you can also use it as an accent to brightened up pretty pastels as well.

I have to say though, my favorite is pairing Marsala with pretty neutrals & metallic hues.

It just seems to add a cozy feel to anything really. I also think if you are not really feeling like adding any red shades to your wardrobe or decor, you can use Marsala for you or your Maids & Mums makeup looks.

I know Marsala probably won’t be the next big color craze anytime soon. But to me that just adds to the charm. It’s different, unexpected, but warm and inviting at the same time. Well I hope this helped some of you on your Big Day color quest. What do you think of The Color of the Year? What colors do you think it would look good with? Let me know in the comments! And hope to see y’all next time when the color I’ll be showing is Strawberry Ice 🙂 Remember to always add a lil Dapper to your everyday! ❤
