As I am not a fan of purple, I was a tad put off until I found these beautiful color inspiration boards and photos all on my favorite photo source, Pinterest.

You can not deny the pop of this royal color does make one feel optimistic.

Delicate violets are amoung the first flowers to spring from the earth after winter’s frost. To me this represents resilience.

With that said this striking color brings with it hope for the new year.

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.
