Pantone’s Greenery

Hello dolls,

As you may already know,  the color authorities Pantone, announced Greenery as the color of 2017. This vibrant yellow green invokes images of nature’s first foliage. Use it as a neutral and mix with other spring colors or alone and it becomes the showstopper.

At first I was intimidated by this color wondering how in the world was I going to wear it? Mr. Michael Kors leaves nothing to guesswork. This gorgeous printed dress below in shades of green, white and blue are all I needed for inspiration. I love the belted vest!

What if you are still leery of wearing such a bold color? You can simply incorporate it into your wardrobe via nail polish or accessories.  Essie Nail Polish is one of my personal favorites because it is 5 Free which makes it safer for you as well as the earth.

Maybe you would like to bring the outdoors into your home. Home decor has a great variety of ways to add Greenery to your home.

Pantone says Greenery is “symbolic of new beginnings” and indeed Spring to me represents a fresh new world full of beautiful possibilities. I hope my post inspires you to embrace this color and would love to know how you are using it in your own life. As for myself, I few surprises up my sleeve. But you will have to return to see how I am using Greenery.

Hello lovely!
I hope you are experiencing some pleasant weather where you live. It has been extremely warm here in the Pittsburgh area. There has been sunshine and a slight breeze which means the winds of change are here. Springtime will be here soon.
 I thought a pretty style board was just the thing to inspire us all. What are you looking forward to wearing once the weather breaks? I am excited to begin wearing pretty sleeveless tops and open toed sandals.
This spring expect to find an abundance of pretty floral prints. And of course loads of greens which by now you already know is Pantone’s ,the color experts, color of 2017.
I can’t wait to share more with you dear reader. In the meantime, stay stylish and blessed.

Georges Hobeika RT SS 17

Hello dolls!

As winter chases us indoors, unless you are a snow bunny, we look forward to the future. And the future lies in the awakening of our dear earth and the arrival of spring. Oh the smell of the earth all dewy and warm. And nature’s peek at what’s to come in the way of tiny buds popping up from the ground. It’s simply my favorite time of the year…

Another thing I love about this season is the multitude of beauty in the form of haute couture. Today I would like to share some inspiration from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika.
