Color Code / Rose Quartz + Serenity

The Life Styled Pantone 2016 Rose Quartz Serenity

When Pantone announced that the colors of 2016 were what they call rose quartz and serenity, I thought “Yes. They get me.” I know I’m more of a black/white/gold girl but when it comes to color, there are few nuanced shades that I just love.  This is a dreamy combo that’s certainly more playful than last year’s marsala red (yeah, hated that and I’m so glad it’s over).  It has a childlike/fantastical unicorn-y feel but the colors can look super sophisticated when worn as a structured top, oversized sweater, or suede pumps. The duo feels right in the winter as an alternative to winter white, and they’ll be here to stay during spring and summer too.  Shop my picks below to work a little pastel into your 2016 wardrobe.

    2. Corine, une question peut-être idiote : est-il possible qu’un président, ici M. Bush, soit jugé devant la Cour pénale inaninttroeale, ou ait au moins à rendre des comptes quant aux violations des Droits de l’Homme perpétrées sous son mandat ?

    3. I live in San Antonio! I love it here. We often do “staycations”. We get a hotel downtown and enjoy what our city has to offer. I can never get tired of the riverwalk. Your pcitures show the heart of San Antonio well. If you want to see the Riverwalk in a different way, visit during the holidays, it is decorated with thousands of LED lights and is absolutly gorgeous.
