Color Crush: Samba

For the next installment of color crush I decided to full on embrace fall with this gorgeous samba color. Now it hurts my soul to say that, because this is basically Alabama red, but it's still pretty, so I'll those crimson tide fans out there... I'll admit it. You have a good color.


I've decided that I need that scarf, and the bag? Yes please

Color Crush: Carafe

There's something about fall that just makes a girl want to shop. All the pretty fall foliage perhaps? The annual ritual of back to school shopping? Sure. Well, this girl has definitely been lusting after a few fall hues I'd like to add to my closet. A while back I bookmarked the 2013 fall color lineup from pantone, and now I'm ready to get shopping and to share some of my favorites with y'all

First up, Carafe. What could be more perfect for fall than a rich warm coffee brown? Nothing, that's what. I'm kind of obsessed with the possibilities of pairing this gorgeous color with emerald, magenta and some of the other hues I've added to wardrobe this year.  So without further adieu, my carafe crushes.

Color Crush Carafe

I had to throw in a little leopard for good measure. Hope y'all don't mind too much. I'm completely obsessed with those booties and would LOVE to add them to my shoe collection. and that dress? UH MAZ ING.

Now what carafe wear are you crushing this fall?

Color Crush: Linen

With spring officially here, I'm loving transitioning out of my darker clothes into something a little brighter. But sometimes I can go a little overboard with the color. 

That's why for this installment of color crush, I'm loving Linen. It's enough of a color to not completely wash me out, but still is a classy neutral for a new season.

Color Crush: Linen

I love that shirt dress, and almost picked one up this weekend at Nordstrom Rack. I'm still thinking about it... so I may have to go back. I'm also loving the idea of a linen colored bag for spring.

What color are you loving so far this season?

Color Crush: African Violet and Google Reader

UPDATE: So before we get on to the main show, I'm late on this whole google reader/gfc retirement. I, like so many of you, am furious with this development. I have only 1/6 of my readers on bloglovin... so this is a hit to say the least! I had several other feed sources linked to my reader, so I'm not sure if I'm going to make the transition to bloglovin or another rss feed reader like feedly. What are y'all planning on doing? 

In the meantime, I'm adding all of my blogs to blog lovin so I don't lose anyone! So add me! I have a button over on the side (looks like the feed button, but it's really bloglovin... I should probably change that) or just click here.

For my next installation of color crush I'm featuring African Violet. This is such a pretty color and makes me so ready for spring time!

African Violet

How pretty is that Oscar de la Renta dress? Oh my goodness. I'm absolutely dying, in love. I want to wear it every day and twirl around Capitol Hill.

Growing up I was more of a pink girl, as opposed to a purple one. In my house there were three girls and we were each "assigned" colors to differentiate between our possessions. My color was pink, Sara's was purple, and Beckie got whatever the other option was. Ha. Sucks to be the youngest. Now that I think back on it, those assignments were even reflected in the walls of our rooms. Mine was pepto-pink and I loved it. Sara's was a lavender, and Beckie had white/blue.

Anyways, back to African Violet. I've totally been crushing on this color lately. I love it paired with Emerald. Anyone else?
So what are you feeling currently?

Color Crush: Poppy Red

I'm still loving all the pantone colors of 2013. After talking about Emerald, Dusk Blue and Grayed Jade I'm jumping to the other end of the spectrum: Poppy Red.

I went to The University of Georgia, our colors are red and black, so red has a special place in my heart. Not to mention my closet. By the time I graduated I'd managed to build up quite the collection of red clothing. Unfortunately they were mostly t-shirts and a few gameday dresses, so I haven't had many chances to wear the color since. Lately I've been feeling the urge to invest in a few new items. I picked up a poppy red coat last year, and its so lovely. A few new accessories and I'll be set.

Color Crush: Dusk Blue

Continuing my obsession with Pantone's colors of the year (as I mentioned here and here) I wanted to keep shopping for one of my other favorite colors from the line up.

Dusk Blue is absolutely gorgeous. I love that it can be a relaxing cool color, but it's easily punched up if you add in a more vibrant shade. My bedroom in high school was actually very similar to this color... man was I a trendsetter or what?

Dusk Blue

Anyways. I am heading to Georgia today for a funeral--- so if I'm a tad slow to return comments I apologize. It's going to be a super quick trip, but I'll be back to real life on Thursday. Until then friends.

Color Crush: Greyed Jade

First of all... notice anything different around here? 

I finally have a real blog! OMG I know. So exciting. Kate has been putting up with me for the last, four months or so to put this together, and I'm absolutely thrilled with out it looks. She calmed all of my craziness and created something so much more than I ever could have thought of. Thank you so much Kate, and to any of you out there, I can't recommend her services enough. We may still be under construction today- but bare with us!  

So we all know I've been obsessed with Emerald lately (as evidenced here, here, here, here oh and here). Well I was browsing pinterest this weekend and decided there's another color I might be loving a little bit more. I know. Shocking. It's no lie I love the color grey (very strange I know), but this Greyed Jade color is absolutely gorgeous and so glamorous. 

I couldn't help but imediately start shopping to add some pieces to my wardrobe. While I still haven't found anything that I can't live without, I have found a few things that I love...

I mean, that kate spade bag? I may have to add it to my collection. LOVE it.

Anyways, hope you ladies have a wonderful weekend. I plan on catching up on some MUCH needed sleep. Yay. So excited.
