Radiant Orchid

Move aside emerald.
A new color has been crowned.
Say hello to the 2014 Pantone Color of the year,

I have to be honest, when I found out this "breaking news",
I had to google what color Radiant Orchid was exactly.
To me, it sounded like a pretty nail polish name made up by Essie or OPI.
After a quick search, I realized I'd always loved this color...
I just didn't know the fancy-schmancy name for it.;)
And lucky me, a few pieces in this hue were already hanging in my closet...like this maxi skirt I'm wearing below.
If you would of asked me what color the maxi skirt was when I bought it,
 I would have just said a bright purplish pink or fuschia....
but Radiant Orchid just sounds much more elegant, doesn't it?

As described on the Pantone website, Radiant Orchid is....
 "“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm."

Bright, bold, confident, and charming.
 Exactly what I want 2014 to look like.
