Listening to my friends talk who have little girls this weekend, the conversation went something like this…
E: 'A''s favorite color is now purple. *eye roll* purple. really? it used to be yellow. I like yellow.
C: Get used to it. 'S' changed over to purple a year ago and she probably will be into it for the next few years. So I hear.

Geez…I didn't know there was such a problem with purple, but I guess it's one of those colors that little girls who are into dance and barbies and Frozen love. And I'm sure you've heard about the Red Hat Society in which older women wear red hats and purple dresses and do…something. But what about all of us ladies in between? Can we pull off purple? Well, Pantone says we can and since they are the authority on color, I'm going to agree. Radiant orchid is the color of 2014. This is not a purple for the fainthearted. This is a vibrant shocking mix of magenta and fuchsia that will definitely get you noticed. Go bold head to toe or tone it down with a neutral outfit and bright peep toes or sandals. I am one to always add in color with accessories so I love the baubles from Lily Rain, a fabulous online accessories store. So excuse me little girls and grandmas, there's a new purple in town...
