Pantone’s Spring 2013 Colors

I’ve mentioned before that I really, really don’t like pastel colors. They’re just so … blah-looking to me. So I am just thrilled to see some bold colors in Pantone’s fashion color report. I also love that Monaco Blue is next to Nectarine in this image. Many times this kind of dark blue gets paired with white or cream, which is fine, but it has the potential to be so fun, like in this ensemble.

    Well, being a Chicago girl I’m of course always excited about the blue and orange combo (go Bears!) but my favorite is blue and green. Favorite favorite colors.

      Haha, “Favorite favorite” made me think of a Brian Regan skit about his “most favorite” snow cone flavor.
