The Color of 2012

Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year is none other than the punchy, fun, uplifting Tangerine Tango. I personally adore this color and think it perfectly represents the vibrancy I’m hoping for out of 2012. What about you? Plus, there’s something about the warmth of the color that makes me excited for the spring and summer months ahead. Yes, it’s only January 2, and I’m already daydreaming about warmer temps!

How was everyone’s New Year’s? I’ve determined I’m getting old. What would’ve flown a year or two ago I apparently can no longer handle. I stuck to Champagne the whole night, but even then, I think I over indulged with one glass too many.  Thank goodness I have today off, because yesterday, I was not feeling so hot. However, the night was a TON of fun, so in the end it was worth it! I hope your New Year’s celebrations were similarly as festive. :)

A bit of news: My monthly column ‘Double Take’ on Young Sophisticates is up today! Mosey on over here to check out this month’s splurge/save look. It was inspired by this pin that I found on A Piece of Toast’s Pinterest. So thanks, gals!

Happy Monday, all! I’m so happy the blog world is BACK this week. I missed everyone.

    So glad that a happy, warm color is the one of the year! A good sign for sure. I adore that dress in the first line– a perfect mix of sporty/elegant.

    I am obsessed with this color right now! I did a post about it last week (or was it the week before? Time is still blurry for me! Lol!) and I love the collection of images/design you pulled together Victoria!
    Happy New Year!

    That color is so invigorating, love you picks. I was in bed at 11, relieved that I have friends with infants who gave me the perfect excuse to have a low key new year. xo

    Happy New Year!

    Love this roundup, makes Tangerine Tango look so chic. The only thing I own in this color is a throw that rarely make an appearance. Must be more brave!

    I’m a fan of brights. It’s like orange and red did the tango and gave us tangerine. I’m always dreaming of summer. Kinda already feels like it down here in the Valley.

    Love this color, and of course was planning on posting about it too, but you’ve covered it so well already!

    I was totally queasy all day yesterday…no bounce anymore. So sad!

    I absolutely love tangerine for summer! It’s such a pretty color and goes well with all types of skin tones… I think you just inspired me to get a tangerine-ish bikini for my Costa Rica trip in Feb!
