The purchase of this pretty pink coat was a timely move, as shortly after I received it in the post, Pantone announced its color of the year. After reading the description of Honeysuckle pink, I was completely convinced that this was the perfect little end-of-winter coat.

The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.

Are you so excited for all of the bright colors popping up in the fashion world these days? I have probably mentioned before that sporting lots of color is not a typical fashion move for me. It’ll probably be a bit of a challenge, but I’m definitely up for it! More colors, more pattern, and much more fun.

    I’m loving the color on you!
    Have you been wearing less lipstick/make-up to balance the colorful wardrobe additions?
    You look sooo different with your make-up styled differently…you always look polished and beautiful though…(I feel like I look the same no matter how I do my make-up)

  12. I love that third picture and the very last one. They have such an old timer, romantic feel to them, like you’re straight out of another decade. Lovely.

    That coat is such a gorgeous colour & the description of the pantone colour of the year suits it to a t! :)
    I’m attempting to add more colour to my wardrobe – the past 4 years it has been mainly black (due to a uniform restriction for work & my general laziness!) so I’ve been adding lots of bright florals for this fall
    lovely x
