Powder Blue and Pink

Pantone Colors of the Year 2016


Pink and powder blue are some of my favorite colors. These colors also proved popular this past year as rose quartz and serenity were Pantone’s colors of the year 2016.

In January I bought a light pink Rebecca Minkoff medium MAB bag*, and I love it. The medium MAB bag is a great size, and the color is gorgeous.

I appreciate that the 2016 colors of the year reminded me how well pale blue and pale pink go together. It also means that these colors (or slight variations of them) showed up more in stores, and it was a good time to stock up on items in these colors.

So it was only natural that I thought of carrying my pink MAB bag with my powder blue toggle coat that I previously received from Chadwicks of Boston (see my previous review post for the coat here)*. I also wore my pink neck scarf that I bought earlier this year from Jacket Society

Pantone Color of the Year 2017


Pantone’s color of the year 2017 is greenery - an intense, medium colored green. Green has never been one of my favorite colors, but I have a green jacket in a color quite similar to “greenery” that I can see myself wearing again.

Plus, sometimes I find that I enjoy wearing accessories - scarves, necklaces, watches, shoes, bags - in a color I had previously dismissed. Regardless, I don’t think I’ll be adding a lot of greenery to my wardrobe. But then again, you never know...

Questions: Did you like the 2016 colors of the year? How about the 2017 color of the year - greenery? What’s your favorite color?

  2. This is such a pretty jacket and I adore the color you picked! I have a lot of pieces in rose quartz, but none in the serenity! The neck tie you're wearing with the jacket really adds a nice pop of color.

  3. I've seen Chadwick's toggle coat on several of my favorite ladies...YOU, among them! I am thinking it might be a sign. Maybe I need one, too?? Love the blue and pink paired together. And your delicate scarf is the perfect compliment. Checked out your bag...such a great size and pretty pink. Lovin' the pink on your blog!

    1. Yes, this year's colors are so nice. I'm also not so sure about next year's color... However, green and white can look nice together. Maybe the green more as an accessory...

  11. I wasn't crazy about the colours last year but I love your handbag.

    I think the green is right up my ally. I already have tons of it in my closet.

    1. You actually popped into my mind when I thought about "greenery." I thought that I know at least one person who looks great in that color and loves it!

  13. I wasn't a big fan of the duo colors concept even though individually I like both colors. I would have preferred that it was only one color (either would've been fine); combined they remind me of a baby nursery. I'm still on the fence about 'greenery' as I probably wouldn't wear it as a predominate color in my outfit but I do have a few items that have a shade like that mixed into the pattern. Andrea, thank you for sharing your style perspectives and inspirations with my Fine-Whatever link up.

    1. That's so interesting that you like the colors individually, but that together they remind you of a nursery! I've had fun pairing them here and there throughout the year... :-)

  14. Pink and blue both suit your colouring very well Andrea. I love the pink bag and can see it would be a favourite, a real go-to bag both because of it's size and that pop of colour. And the toggle coat looks very cosy - perfect for snuggling up in the winter ahead.
    Wishing you a wonderful Christmas x
