Pantone Color of the Year!

Well it’s not cobalt. To say, I am bitter is a BIT(TER) of an understatement — especially when you see what they went with…

Radiant Orchid.

Are they serious? First of all, that name — talk about pretentious! Second, I don’t know how it’s going to work all year round… but I am taking a deep breath and finding a way to get excited. So here’s my first attempt to love “radiant orchid.”

Then I started doing research and turns out that Mrs. Obama is all about the radiant orchid. There may be a government conspiracy in play…

This is my first real look at radiant orchid. I am going to start playing around with it and I promise new posts in the future with posts. For now, check out all that you can do with radiant orchid and send me what you try!

PS: Major shout out goes to Hannah who sent me a text when the announcement came out! I might have missed it if not for her.

  1. Ha! Have you SEEN the orchids in my office?! I’m so fashion forward. And to think there’ve been times when I’ve been mocked. πŸ˜‰
