Color of The Year & A Surprise!

Every year, Pantone selects a "Color of The Year" and this year's selection is "Radiant Orchid" .  I have no idea how they go about selecting this, for all I know they could just open up a huge box of Crayola crayons and randomly pick one. But regardless, I LOVE THIS COLOR. 


Purple has always been my favorite and this particular shade is simply gorgeous. I heard about their choice a few weeks ago and have been excited about it ever since. What I especially love about this color is that it goes literally with any skin tone so it'll be easy to wear for all. It's super versatile and will look great in all types of clothing year-round as well as accessories & home decor. Be on the lookout for this color, I've already started to see it pop up in stores! You can't go wrong with it.  Below are a few of my favorite things you can buy in this scrumptious shade as well as a link to Pantone's site right here if you're interested in learning more.

Rain boots: I love my Hunter boots in gray, but this pop of color is just what every girl needs to brighten up her spring.

Earrings: I don't have my ears pierced, but if I did, you bet I'd be sporting these gorgeous girls everyday. 

Purse: I covet a Michael Kors tote and when I saw that it came in this color, my desire exploded.
