Pantone Color of the Year: Turqouise!

"Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.  In fashion, Turquoise makes a statement that can look elegant and dressy in fine silk and gemstones, or casual and fun in cotton and athletic apparel. Because of its versatility, Turquoise is a great accent color in jewelry, purses, shoes, hair accessories and even nail polish for women, and ties, shirts and sportswear for men." - Pantone's press release unveiling TURQUOISE as the color of the year!

Paris knows the power of turquoise...come to me, Matt Leinart!  i will wear nothing but turquoise swimwear and accessories!! it sets off your unnaturally red skin! come to meeeeeeeee!!!!!

Look at how well Lilly hit it on the head - "...especially trendsetting with yellow-greens..." with the BEAUTIFUL and elegant Lilly Pulitzer Petula Dress Printed (comes in 3 shades/prints - I'm also a huge fan of the pink + green coral one).  Imagine this with a super tan (I wish the dress form was tan!), 

these Stella + Dot Starfish Earrings and

some white and silver Bonannos!

 or, keep the Bonannos, switch to a gorgeous brilliant white dress (a la Eva Mendes at the Golden Globes - I know is is from last year, but Rachel Zoe is ON POINT as a stylist!) like this Merona Sundress ($31.99) and and pick a turquoise necklace (like the Bloom Flower Necklace or Turquoise Sea Necklace) and/or cuff (like the Colorburst Enamel Cuff)!

On a totally unrelated note, weighed in this morning at 146.4.  I've decided to make it a personal goal to hit 140 by the time we pull in to our next port.  It's a couple weeks out and at 3 pounds a week weight loss, it's allegedly feasible...the thing is, I've gotten really good at tracking what I eat, and really good at not doing other things while eating and focusing on the food.  the bad part of that - i realize how good some things are and want to eat more and more and more!  Wish me luck losing weight, and staying away from my nemeses:
