19 Jan Turning Heads #linkup- Pantone’s Color Institute Colors 2016-Rose Quartz/Serenity
Happy #turningheadstuesday! This is the first time the Pantone Color Instititue has named 2 Colors of the Year-2016 Rose Quartz and Serenity. As a blogger you may be already familiar with this, and I am pleased to say I have some clothes currently in my closet for spring in these colors. This post was taken on the weekend as we have some rainy days this week and we don’t quite have the lighting yet for indoor posts.
“Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”
I am wearing today a rose colored chiffon cardigan, one of my favorite in my closet as it pairs with many colors. If you read more about the Spring 2016 colors, you will see that these two colors compliment many others. My boots, for example, are a taupe color, which I have been looking for for months, as there were always great boots with high heels I couldn’t wear, but I found these at Sole Society.The Pantone color “Simply Taupe” goes quite well as does the added scarf in Pantone’s “Opal Grey”. I truly love these pastel shades complimented by soft neutrals, as I have paired in today’s look. The other thing that caught my eye, years ago when I bought this cardigan was the textured look, the roses are in chiffon and look as though perhaps they just bloomed.
I am wearing a rose gold watch my husband bought for our Anniversary years ago,and the new Rebecca Minkoff bag in Fog, or light grey was a gift from my mother/dad at Christmas. Hubby didn’t know they bought the same bag in different colors! I am really fine with it!
