Plays Well With…

The start of a new year, new resolutions and the announcement of the Color of The Year by Pantone. And the winner is…Marsala!
MarsalaOh, InStyle, it’s like you knew I needed this announcement. Granted, I’m late reading the issue but worth the wait! Last year’s color was Radiant Orchid, a lovely purplish shade but not me in the least. The year before it was Emerald. Again, pretty, but not in my wardrobe vocabulary. Okay, not much color is in in my wardrobe vocab but you get the idea…

2015’s color is so much more my speed! Now, the fine print says it goes well with navy, black and even mustard. Mustard? Who wears that? Who wears it successfully?

If you know me, you know what I’m thinking! Marsala plays well with grey!

Weekend round up

Since this project is mainly about clothes, I thought I should post some pictures from my weekend. Yes, you will see a bit of grey, but otherwise there is some colour!


This weekend, I wore my new fav Hudson jeans most of the time and switched up the tops and scarfs.

The first photo shows a blue and white striped cardigan that I found at J Crew outlet. In the second photo, I have on my fav Lululemon sweat pants and yes, they are grey and oh so comfortable! The third photo is with my Pantone inspired boyfriend shirt and Toms. Lastly, I re-worked the first outfit by changing the to a jacket but keeping the scarf which has several great shades of blue.

I even had 2 compliments on the colours I was wearing and this never happened while I wore grey. Hmmmm. Things that make you say hmmmm…..








Last week, my sister issued us a joint challenge.  By the end of the weekend, we were to  buy something new to wear in the colour green, Pantone’s colour of the year.

Well, I have to say that I passed the challenge.  This green and white plaid boyfriend shirt from Nordstrom was my choice and I am really happy with it.

I wonder if my sister was as successful.   More on my weekend shopping trip in a later post 🙂
