Rose Quartz and Serenity – Pantone Colors of the Year 2016

I am ecstatic that Pantone chose Rose Quartz and Serenity to represent the colors for the year. They are both gentle colors and are beautiful together or alone! Today the always smiling Julianna from Blush & Camo and gorgeous Haley from Me & Mr. Jones and I are collaborating with you to show three different looks to represent the beautiful unity between these two colors. Hope you enjoy the looks as much as we loved putting them together!

Here’s what Pantone’s Executive Director has say to say about the colors:

Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

What I’m wearing:

Nothing says sophistication like a bodycon midi dress. The best thing about this dress is it’s only $38 from Asos. Worn with or without a trench coat, it becomes a classy choice for making a bold or effortless statement.

I love the versatility of trench coats because they allow you to stay warm and chic at the same time. This waterfall draped trench is the perfect transition for spring and it’s only $67 at Chicwish. I love the Serenity color for adding to my spring wardrobe!

This Forever 21 bag is a much more affordable take on the ever so popular Chloe bags. It amazes me that a bag less than $20 can look this good! If you haven’t found the perfect pair of lace ups, check out Lulu’s for tons of adorable styles that will complete your lace-up game.

    The colours aren’t really my style (maybe rose quartz – it’s kind of close to blush pink which I totally enjoy) but I definitely love trench coats. Probably my favourite style of coat but in general I love longer coats 🙂

    I don’t like how shorter coats cut me off.

      Long trench coats are amazing! Good that you know which style works best for your body type. You are so smart! 🙂
