Alright y’all, its that time of year! The Pantone Color of the year has been announced! Ultra Violet! I will be 1,000 percent honest with you, I don’t love it.  I don’t love it, but I decided I am still going to rock with it! I love different shades of purple, like a lot! They are perfect for spring and to lift your mood! Lavender is a fave.  Will I wear purple a lot this year, probably not, but I can certainly appreciate it! My favorite Pantone Color of all time was a few years ago, Rose Quartz and Serenity. You can see how I styled it here.  I did love last year’s color as well, greenery.  You can see how Jessica and I styled that here. I realized that the Pantone team will not always choose colors and shades that I love, but in this case, it has stretched me creatively and I am not mad with what I came up with!! Ps.  I decided that purple and mustard are a really fun combo!! What are your thoughts on the Pantone Color of the year?
