sweater weather

Forever 21’s (sweater) sale = gifts to self 😀

What I bought and will rock:

Chartreuse is such a lovely bright and is a great alternative to the commonplace grays and black worn in the winter. (It looks great paired with a black or gray bottom though!)

electric geo open-knit sweater

Y’all know gray is my favorite! Not only a perfect neutral, this tunic sweatshirt has awesome detail and is the ideal length for all the leggings and jeggings I like to wear. This needs to come in 20 colors!!

I love the deep, rich red and print of this sweater. It’s also very thick and cozy, awesome for chilling outside.

Color of 2014: Radiant Orchid

img-thing

The color of the year, according to the color gods at Pantone, is supposedly an inspiration for designer’s fashion collections[including interior designs and decor] and reflects the state of the economy? For example, if it were a yellow, we consumers need a pick me up. I think it’s a bit of a crock because I don’t remember seeing a ton of emerald last year..or maybe I missed it because I wasn’t shopping in Neiman Marcus or Barney’s? I saw a lot of neon green [maybe because it’s so dang bright lol..] and celestial/outer space prints.

Anyway, this year it’s radiant orchid- a beautiful, bold and bright pinkish purple hue. I’m not sure how/if it reflects our financial state, but it sure is pretty!

Ahem, I’m ahead of the trend, already incorporating this color into my life with fresh flowers in my apartment, lipstick and nail varnish. Where has Pantone been?!
