This years Pantone color of the year is actually a set of two pastel colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity. The names of these two describe the colors beautifully. Rose quartz, most commonly known as pastel pink, is a sweet and lovely shade. Serenity on the other hand is exactly what you think of when you hear the word serenity. It is calm, peaceful, and blue. I’m definitely loving this dynamic duo, but to be honest, I know I’m going to wear the link pink shade a lot more. I’ve been a fan of pastel pink forever, so it’s just perfect that it’s going to be on trend all year round.
The day we shot these pictures, the weather was very ugly and gloomy. It was like the clouds lumped together on purpose, and kept the sun from shining all day long. Yet, they were indecisive whether to burst into showers or just turn into darker shades of grey as the sun tried desperately to peek through. As you already know the weather truly has an affect on my mood. Seriously. I’m not kidding! So, I tried my best to keep my positive vibes going and wore something chic and pretty. An all white look was my original intent. I put on my favorite of everything, favorite color, favorite jeans, favorite shoes, glasses, heels… And I also tried something new, the skinny scarf around the neck, making it look like a choker. I like it! I need a black one now. I was about to walk out the door and as I extended my arm to get my black faux leather jacket that has been on repeat for the last six months, I realized I had gone shopping a week prior and bought some new colorful items, one of them being the pale pink blazer I’m wearing. I like the oversized fit, one button construction, and the length is just PERFFECT! I’ve been loving these long blazers I’ve been running into lately. It really allows one to play with hemlines. This jacket will definitely be on repeat this whole year. I’m excited to wear it with summer dresses, evening skirts, and of course ripped blue jeans. This subtle pop of color definitely made my look pretty in an instant.
