Rose Quartz

So you might be aware that this year Pantone decided not to have a colour of the year instead they decided that a blending of two colours would add a softer take on a "colour of the year". The chosen swatches are Rose Quartz (a rose hue) and Serenity (a cooler tranquil blue). They have claimed that these colours "psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security" and "reflect connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace".  For me personally, I didn't quite get it. In past years the Pantone colour has definitely had an impact or a stronger grab of my aesthetic. When I first reviewed these colours I was underwhelmed. Maybe because I couldn't place them in my everyday life - I'm not a light, pastel colour girl...

Pool Party Luxe

Zimmermann are always a favourite of mine for beautiful prints in swimwear. There's a certain luxe in a pretty print against a ocean backdrop. After perusing the Zimmermann website for the latest styles - I stumbled across this beautiful one-piece swimsuit. It immediately conjured up images of luxurious pool side lounging - with a cocktail in hand (and preferably no kids around!). So this outfit is an ode to a grown up pool party where fashion meets sun-lounging. Shop the look: Zimmermann: Anais Floral 1 Piece, Maurie & Eve: Josee Skirt, Samantha Wills: Primrose Gold Blush Glitter Sunglasses    ...
