I had a great, full weekend, and while I did take photos… well, I haven’t finished my sewing project yet so I won’t reveal until I do. Maybe I’ll have time to do that tomorrow night… maybe.
We’re having a REALLY early “thaw” here in the mid-Atlantic. I’m not amused. I have a favorite fairly heavy sweater dress that hasn’t gotten its moment in the chilly winter air yet, and there are lots of other warm and cozy outfits I want to wear before it’s officially spring.
Despite my frosty attitude about the warm weather, I am excited about the Pantone spring color report.
Emerald? Check. What’s not to love?! I already have a lot of it in my wardrobe.
Dusk Blue? See above; it too is a wardrobe staple for me.
Tender Shoots? Ditto. It’s about as close to yellow as I dare to wear close to my face.
Grayed Jade? More of the same. I don’t believe I own anything quite that color, but I’ll be happy to work on changing that.
Lemon Zest? Okay, into every color report, some rain must fall. I can’t wear this shade and don’t care much for it, but hey, at least it’s a cheerful hue.
African Violet? Too soft and squooshy for me, but I know there are a lot of fan of any shade of purple out there and again, it isn’t offensive; I just won’t wear much of it.
Linen? Neutral enough, but as it probably matches my skin tone, I won’t be wearing it.
Monaco Blue? Be still my heart. Navy with a dash of ooomph. Yes please, and might I have another?
Poppy Red? I don’t think I could pick a favorite, but I’m sure Poppy Red would be tied for it!
Nectarine? One of the shades of orange I’ll wear…
Which hue sings to you? Do you have a favorite in the bunch, or like me, would it be easier for you to start ranking them from least favorite on up?
