Today was an absolutely gorgeous spring day, one of those where you just have to pull out an ode-to-spring outfit. Even though this full cream colored skirt made several appearances throughout the fall and winter, it’s really my spring and summer staple, all light and airy and swirly.
I was inspired to pair this cream with coral and a wide belt thanks in part to Kendi’s “Zooey” dress from Anthropologie. Except mine’s not a dress. And I inverted the colors. Also I’m wearing blue. And I don’t look anything like Zooey Deschanel. But I digress.
Does anyone else check out Pantone’s seasonal color forecasts? Among the color trends for Spring 2010 are classic spring colors like turquoise and violet. But the thing I love best about Pantone colors are the names that they saddle some of these swatches with. “Dried Herb.” “Aurora.” “Tomato Puree.” It makes feel a little bad about just calling my color combination today “coral” and “blue.” Can we come up with something better? I think that reds tend to be named after foods or flowers, while blues tend to be named with words associated with the sky, ocean, or precipitation. Okay. So…”poppy” and “sky”? “Rhubarb” and “splash”? “Ahi tuna” and “blizzard”? Heh.
