Color of the Year and a GIVEAWAY!

Every year the Pantone Color Institute picks a color of the year. For 2015, Marsala was the chosen hue, which surprised some but the more and more I see it,  the more I love it. This deep shade of brownish red is so saturated it is almost a black, which makes it extremelely neutral. It can be paired with dark colors like navy and charcoal gray or lighter tones like blush or white. Silvana from Wicked Peacock challenged me to style this Marsala statement necklace and I had a blast.
My first outfit was a bit casual with a billowy navy sweater, oxblood skinnies, and brown suede booties.
My next outfit was a bit more polished for a styling event and I had a bit more fun pairing it with some leopard pattern, green sweater, skinnies, and Marsala patent wedge heels.

Don't mind my smirk, but I really wanted to highlight how versatile Marsala is, despite the initial thought that it may be too dark for Spring. Paired with the right color or pattern, it's a great color.
Lastly, I brought some bling to the soccer field. Why not, right? I love a little surprise, a little spice to a super casual outfit. Here, I paired it with a baseball raglan,  dark skinnies and leaopard slides.

I fell in love with this necklace but am happy to give it and two pairs of earrings away to one lucky reader, courtesy of Wicked Peacock!

Here's the rules:
1. Follow both myself and Wicked Peacock on Instagram
2. On Tuesday, April 7th, I will pick one random follower and announce it at 1 pm Eastern Time on Instagram

Good Luck!


  1. Love it!! And love the pairings.

  2. Love it - A trip to Rockport is moving to the top of my list over April vacation!
