Pantone’s Color of the Year: Greenery

Pantone has named “Greenery” the 2017 Color of the Year. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that is symbolic of new beginnings. Think the great outdoors meets the first day of spring.

I loved this thought from Pantone “The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.”

At first I wasn’t thrilled with this color, but I love the idea that enjoying it in fashion, home and beauty products should remind me to reconnect with nature, so I’m definitely digging it. Here are a few ways you can enjoy it:

Green Rectangular Lacquer Serving Tray ($24.99)

This tray is perfect to add a pop of color to any room. You can use it to serve or as a piece of decor.

Piñata Tassel Drops ($36)

These earrings are fabulous and the perfect addition to any outfit.

OPI My Gecko Does Tricks ($10)

This was the perfect match for Greenery, plus it also comes in the gel color to match which is a must have for me.

Alfani Faux-Leather Moto Jacket ($99.50)

This would be a great transition piece from winter to spring.

Aerosoles Branchlet Flip Flop Sandals ($59)

These would be adorable at the beach or during the summer months. They look comfortable!

Alfani Printed Halter Dress ($89.50)

When I saw this dress I couldn’t think of anything that embodied the spirit of Greenery more. This is such a different style than I would normally wear but I think it would look great.

Ray Ban Aviators ($175)

I can totally get on board with these beauties. I’ve been eyeing a pair of aviators for a while.

Zella Live In Slim Fit Leggings ($52)

These are my favorite yoga pants, so why not get them in green?

Kate Spade Leaves Large Notepad ($7.50)

I thought this was a fun notebook that would make you think about the outdoors.

Ralph Lauren Ruffled One-Piece Swimsuit ($120)

I love the ruffles on this!

Dooney & Bourke Leighton Tote ($170.99)

It took me a long time to find a green handbag that I liked. This one is the perfect size and shade.

Sleeveless Vee Neck Wrap Dress ($138)

I wasn’t going to add a second dress, but this is just stunning.

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.

Chinese Laundry

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.

Kate Spade

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

I love anything ombre so these were calling my name.

Dip Dye

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.

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.

Pantone’s Color of the Year: Marsala

Pantone has officially named Marsala, a naturally robust and earthy wine red, as the Color of the Year for 2015.


Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute said “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

To me, Marsala is a deep, earthy wine color. It makes me think of fall and winter. Call it burgundy, maroon, mauve, wine, oxblood or any of those names. Since this is the color to have in 2015, I thought I would share a few items that you can get to start incorporating Marsala into your life:

Converse ($50)


Nars Blush in Seduction ($30)

nars seduction

Enamel & Faux Diamond Stretch Bracelet ($34.95)


Cuffed Knit Blazer ($24.80)


Round Toe Ballet Flats ($10.80)

MAC Sin Lipstick ($16)

Tory Burch Robinson Pebbled Hardshell Case for iPhone 5 ($60)


Frenchi Shawl Collar Cardigan ($48)


Hunter Original Short Gloss ($138)

As you may have seen from previous posts, the tall boots won’t work with my calves, so I am all about the short ones and the Damson color fits with our color of the year.


CND Vinylux/Shellac in Masquerade

I own this color and get lots of compliments on it. It definitely fits with Pantone’s new color of the year.
