Pantone’s Color of the Year: Rose Quartz & Serenity

For the first time ever, Pantone has named two shades as their 2016 Color of the Year. They blended two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity to create their 2016 color.

These colors are supposed to represent balance, mindfulness, relaxation and composure. I love this theme for 2016 and think we can all bring more balance into our lives.


Here are a few of my picks to incorporate Rose Quartz & Serenity into your life this year:

Sephora & Pantone Color of the Year Matte Lipstick ($18)

Sephora has teamed up with Pantone to release official Color of the Year lipsticks in both Rose Quartz and Serenity. They’ve also created a unique lipgloss and eye shadow palette for these colors and more.


Chinese Laundry Leo T Strap Sandal ($69.95)

I had previously admired these shoes on one of Ali Fedotowsky’s posts months ago, but as I was doing research for this post, I saw they come in both Cashmere Blue Patent and Soft Pink Patent which match our colors of the year.

Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace ($80)

I love Kendra Scott’s pendant necklaces and she has my favorite one in both periwinkle and rose quartz.

Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise Leather Satchel ($223.50 – $298)

I’ve been eyeing this bag for a long time, I love how compact it is – definitely my version of arm candy.

Lord & Taylor Dip-Dyed Cashmere Crewneck ($214)

I love anything ombre so these were calling my name.

OPI Nail Polish

I chose the OPI colors Suzi Shops and Island Hops and No Room for the Blues as the best picks for this year’s Pantone color. They both come in regular polish and Gel color which you can’t beat!


Robert Rodriguez Floral-Print Faux-Wrap Dress ($149)

I thought this dress was the perfect blend of our two colors. Plus it’s just so feminine which I love!

ASICS Women’s GT-1000 3 Running Shoe ($69.95)

I thought these were a great blend of our Pantone colors. The pink is a little darker, but you get the idea.


Canvas Wall Art ($39.99)

I love the saying and the colors – what a perfect addition to your home decor in our favorite colors.


Sunset Sublimation Capri Leggings ($45)

These are the perfect blend of Rose Quartz & Serenity! Hopefully they bring you serenity in your yoga practice.

  1. Those heels are gorgeous but if I wore them I think I’d definitely fall, lol. Definitely not used to walking in heels.

  2. I love the dress with both colors! It’s so pretty. I also love the shoes. I’m actually very excited about this years colors as I’m normally not a pink fan, but I love this one!
