pantone challenge :: paloma

"Paloma" is today's color for the Spring Pantone-Inspired Color Challenge (hosted by Heidi and Marissa). While others may see it as just plain old grey, I think of it as a means between the extremes of light grey and dark grey. The color "paloma" makes me think of a top my aunt gave me years ago (worn today), although the word "paloma" itself makes me think of Palmolive and getting my hair washed with it when I was younger to combat the grease. Did your mom ever try any odd home remedies on you when you were younger?



Scarf: J. Crew Factory | option
Cardigan: Old Navy | last worn

  1. It might sound weird, but I'm a pretty big fan of the color grey, so I'm really loving this outfit. The polka dot cardi and cobalt scarf also make a great pair.

  2. I am totally loving the scarf and cardigan, too! I think grey is a great color and can be such a nice basic. I don't think my mom tried any home remedies other than gargling with salt water for a sore throat...

  3. I have too many scarves, but I want a cobalt one and you aren't helping! I love how it looks with the neutrals!

  4. Such a fun challenge for the week! I love adding a pop of brightness into a neutral outfit with a scarf. It never fails to make a look complete.

  6. That cardigan <3 So glad you linked up! I agree that the name Paloma brings on many other images other than gray, but Heidi's explanation of it makes it so much better! I really love this look and the color would be perfect for tomorrow's Dazzling Blue!

  7. I love that you added the cobalt scarf. I've been adding cobalt to almost everything lately, too. As far as home remedies, the only crazy one that I still swear by is rubbing Vick's on the soles of my feet and covering them with socks while I sleep when I am sick. It's miraculous and always works!

  8. Haha I have never heard of washing hair with palmolive; that is hilarious that your mom did that! Paloma is a strange word - it makes me think of horses but I don't know why... anyway, love the pretty blue scarf mixed with the pattern on the sweater!

  9. You look great. I love Gray always - it is so pretty and understated, a great neutral that never gets enough credit. Your scarf and cardigan are awesome. I included a similar cardigan on my 30 for 30 remix that I am doing this month.

    The word Paloma reminds me of a Spanish Telenovela (soap opera) that they used to show in Albania years ago (when I visited). I never watched it, neither do I know the name of the show but the main character was named Paloma. LOL

    just kidding. well, not really kidding about the scarf (because the color is really pretty)... but kidding because I don't want a virtual slap. ;)

  12. wait, why did your mom use palmolive to wash your hair? why was it so greasy? why couldn't normal shampoo do the job? so many questions.

  13. Great post. Thank you for writing such an informative post on Palmolive. Check out my website on things Palmolive can do for your skin.

    ^^^You ever get those silly, robotic, has nothing to do with your post comments?? Kimmie's silly comment just made me think of that haha!

    Anyways, nope my mom never tried Palmolive on me. I had super greasy hair too, but she'd always just tell me, "you could fry an egg in that hair!" ...gross, I know.

    Your old navy pants though! aren't they super comfy? I love them, because they aren't jeans, so I can wear them to work :)

  14. This is great - I love a grayscale outfit with a fun color accent! I just wore my cobalt scarf with a gray top as well - it's a good look :)
