2011 - The Year of Color

Lovelies, how was the close of 2010 and the start of 2011? For me NYE was very low key. As it turns out, the thought of getting super fancied up and going out just didn't hold a candle to sitting with a group of great friends and playing board and video games for the evening. Seriously one of the better NYE celebrations. 

And with a new year comes new trends. This year is apparently the year of color, according to Refinery 29, and I couldn't be more excited. Oranges, Blues, rusty earth tones, oh my! 

For 2011, I resolve to embrace more colors and these beauties should help me along the way.

This is more within my comfort zone of color, but yowza is this trench hot! The earthy rust tone screams "look at me!" but without any words. It's instantly being added to my must-have list. 

So is there any color you're dying to try this spring?


  1. I love colour too! I've always HATED that winter coats are always in dark dreary hues. The winter is sad enough in Beantown without lack of colour as well. I wish there was a designer out there who made warm winter coats with a touch of light. Let me know if you've already discovered someone who does!
