pantone challenge :: radiant orchid

If you didn't already know, I love participating in challenges and theme weeks. Last week: Floral Week. This week: the Spring Pantone-Inspired Color Challenge (hosted by Heidi and Marissa). I don't have anything in "radiant orchid" (which is surprising, considering how much purple I have in my closet), but it made me immediately think of this neglected sweater. Even if this is a loose interpretation of "radiant orchid", it's a win for no longer neglecting this sweater, and for getting to wear my new favorite scarf again! 




Scarf: The Limited | option
Sweater: via Target (gift) | option
Pants: The Limited

  3. I can see why that scarf is your favorite because it's a really unique pattern and filled with so many colors! And this sweater is a great fit on you; I'm surprised it was neglected.

  4. I really like the combination of this scarf and sweater! The sweater is such a pretty color and it makes a lovely background for your scarf! And I am jealous of your weather, it looks so nice and sunny...and it's snowing here.

  5. I really like this! Dress pants, a plain top or sweater with a scarf has definitely become one of my work look "uniforms."

  6. I'm participating in the challenge this week too, there will definitely be a few days for which I don't have anything in the specified color...I think "fudging" the color a bit is totally OK--it's all about what inspires YOU, right?
    That scarf really is pretty and so versatile. A perfect combo!

  9. I'm glad the challenge was able to inspire you to show some love to an older, but very lovely sweater. Purple in all shades is just wonderful in my eyes! I love the scarf you paired it with too--so springy. Thanks for joining in, Kate! Looking forward to your other looks, too.
