Blessing #161 - The Color of the Year

Last week, Pantone announce the color of the year for 2013. Now, who or what is Pantone and what made them pickers of the color of the year? I don't know, but I do know I like their picks.

This year, the color of the year was tangerine tango, and the color for 2013 is emerald green.


Are you not as excited as I am?

In honor of the new color of the year, I decided to bring a little green into my outfit this week. Okay.....maybe a lot of green.

I found the sweater at a yard sale a while ago, and the jeans and shirt are from goodwill.  The scarf and ear rings were a gift.  (Accessories make great gifts!)

I really don't know how I feel about green.  I don't know if I like it or hate it.  Maybe green is an accent color for me and not a whole outfit color.  Maybe it's the plaid shirt that's throwing me off.  I'm not really a plaid person so I don't want to blame it all on green.

I love trying out a new color, but I am still undecided. Oh well! At least, I have a year to decide how I feel about green.

I'm sharing this post with Dear Abby Leigh and The Pleated Poppy. 


  1. I for one, am quite excited about the 2013 color of the year! I used to not be a fan of green, but love it now. Great layering here! Visiting from the Dress For The Day blog hop, hope you have a great day!


  2. You look great! I am actually really excited about the green! I think it gives me a reason to add green jeans to my wardrobe. :)

  3. Love the green! And your outfit is adorable. ;)  I wore a green skirt today (that I purchased before Pantone made their announcement!) ;) Emerald green is such a great color. :)
