color love: pantone spring/summer 2010: violet

Pantone Violet is a beautiful warm purple for the season! The Pantone Institute tells us, “Like the scent of a blossoming flower, Violet lends a romantic air to the warm-weather palette. This intriguing purplish hue is a distinctive addition to any wardrobe.”

This is one of my favorite shades of purple… Enjoy!

The runways had a LOT more purple than the Pantone report let on… check it out! From pale lilacs to screaming vibrant jewel tones and everything in between, this color was definitely not a shrinking violet!
