WIWW: Radiant Orchid

Happy Wednesday, everyone! :)

Finally, an outfit to celebrate Pantone´s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. If you´ve been a follower of this blog (since I started it), you´d know by now that purple is my favorite color. It´s lighter shade called mauve is even part of my wedding motif! So I´m glad that Pantone chose a shade close to purple for this year´s color. As for combining it with different colors, I tried mixing it with olive green pants for a different springy look.

I set my camera to warm colors on the first four photos but the top´s actual color is lilac which you can see on the photo below. I just had to include this picture because of  the ¨grumpy face¨ formed by the top´s creases on my tummy. Can you see it? And no, my tummy doesn´t feel grumpy at all and nor do I, lol! :)

More purplish colors coming soon. I laid low with purple these past years because I didn´t want to saturate my blog with my fave color but hey, since it´s the base of this year´s color, then I´m letting it all go!

So what´s your take on Radiant Orchid? Have you worn it yet? ;)

I hope your midweek´s great!

Hugs,

Che

I do love radiant orchid and purples in general. I don't have anything in specifically the radient orchid shade, but I wear a lot of fuschias and deep purples. Your top goes so well with the olive pants!

That purple top is lovely on you! I think you should definitely wear it and blog it more often, especially if it's your favourite colour, as it looks great on you! :)
