Pretty in Orchid

As I’m sure most of you have heard by now, the 2014 Pantone color of the year is…

Pantone Color of the Year- Radiant Orchid

Yes! Radiant Orchid! And can we all just take a moment to sigh in its beautiful femininity? *ahhhh* I’ll admit, the color has undergone quite a bit of criticism with plenty of purple party poopers ripping on its… purpleness. Does anyone else think “Effie Trinket?”

BUT, all of the criticism aside- there’s something so refreshing to me about this color. I’ve always gravitated towards purple- but usually only rich, deep purples. Purples that almost appear more black than they do purple. So to be introduced to a light purple that I actually like- it’s a big deal for me. So here are some of my very favorite things I’ve run across in Radiant Orchid:
