You may have heard by now that the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year is EMERALD.  This excites me to no end because emerald is one of my favorite colors to wear.  I think it looks good on people with warmer undertones (more yellow in skin color, like me) and people with cooler undertones (more pink in skin… think The Little Mermaid or Alyssa Campanella, former Miss USA at the Miss Universe pageant -she has red hair  and cool skin and ROCKED an emerald gown).

If you aren’t a fan of wearing emerald, consider sporting it through bold accessories or a handbag.  

Happy Weekend!

Brandon and I are hitting up my favorite restaurant, O-Ku, tonight.  Lots of errands are on the list for tomorrow.. and oh, a facial!  Time to get that bridal glow on, y’all.

    I'm so happy it's emerald, too! I love this color and it's my birthstone…totally justifies a few new purchases!

    Enjoy your weekend – sounds fun! 🙂

    I love emerald too! Maybe because I'm a May baby and it's my birthstone. Or maybe it's because emerald is a beautiful color. Either way I want to rip those curtins out of the second photo and put them up in my apartment! Have a great weekend!!
