As many of you know, every year Pantone picks it's color of the year - the color that will spark the trends in fashion and design for the coming year. This year, I was happy to see that the color they picked is Radiant Orchid.
In fact, I have an orchid just this shade, which a good friend of mine gave me this spring. Up until recently, it was full of beautiful blooms, but unfortunately all the pretty flowers have fallen off now, which I believe is due to the severe lack of sun in Seattle in the winter. :(
Anyway, I love this color. Since purple is one of my favorite colors, I am sure I will find lots of ways to wear it. Stay tuned for outfit pics! Until then, here's some Radiant Orchid inspiration:
