Brighten your Mood with Color

The best color in the world, is the one that looks good on you! — Coco Chanel

Happy New Year!! With the holidays behind us and a couple months of winter ahead, this is a great time to think about color and embrace the 2023 Pantone color of the year, Viva Magenta!

This color vibrates with vim, vigor, and signals strength says Pantone. They state that this year’s Color of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that reveals pure joy. It demands power, passion, and balance while also bringing cheerfulness and peace to those who wear it.

Most women default to wearing a darker color palette in winter. I love the idea of adding in this bright berry color, it is easy to find and style.

You can pair it with other jewel tones or neutrals like brown, camel and black. If you want to be ultra chic, go monochromatic with this color, head to toe! Not ready to take the plunge, add this color in with a shoe, earring, or scarf.

Kick off the new year with a new bold color in your wardrobe. If magenta is not your thing...there are so many options. Color is the new black and it will truly brighten your mood!



I love a bright wool coat for winter, it adds so much to your outfit and talk about a first impression when you walk in the door.....



Although jewel tones like magenta flatter most skin types, opt for a pair of pants if you don't want the color around your face.



A very simple chic way to add a bold color is with accessories. Keep your outfit neutral like the camel sweater and jeans and then add one accessory with pop of color.






I recently shared that my intention for 2023 is to help hundreds of women feel beautiful, inside, and out! My hope is that this blog nudges you a bit to get out of your comfort zone and wear things in a new way with confidence. If you want to dive a little deeper, please reach out. Wishing you a year filled with love, light, and your unique beauty!

Let's step into 2023 with ease, grace, and joy in the simplest of things. I look forward to helping you clear the clutter, maximize your wardrobe, shine a little brighter, and feel fabulous every day!!

With Grace!
