Why I'm Not Wearing The Color Of The Year

Welcome to Wednesday and another edition of TBB Style.    We hope you'll join us and link up your fashion posts below, and check back to see if you are featured!

Today we're talking about Pantone's Color of the Year - Ultra Violet.  Which is a truly beautiful color, especially if you're a flower.

My Grandma gave me this African Violet 27 years ago...
However, I don't own a single wearable item in any shade of purple.  Here's the story.  As all colleges do, my alma mater (and Thomas' current school) has a huge cross state rival.  Big, big rivalry.  As in, wouldn't be caught dead in that other school's colors kind of rivalry.  Which happen to be purple and gold.

Although I do think it's very pretty, I'm never going to wear ultra violet.  If I did, though, I might buy this gorgeous cashmere sweater from Bloomingdale's.  But I can't, so I won't.


The rest of Pantone's spring colors are also lovely.


You're much more likely to find me in Chili Oil.  By the way, who comes up with these names?  I want that job.

Chili Oil (or Crimson) and Gray...Go Cougs!

  4. For the same reason that I will never wear blue and gold together. Go green!

  5. Oh my goodness! You are cracking me up! Purple is my favorite color and so I do wear it except for game days because we hate LSU! I was recently wearing a purple t-shirt around the house on game day and Wayne asked me to go change and put my Bama tee on instead! Rivalries are the best!

  8. I am really impressed you have kept that violet alive for so long! I wish I had a green thumb like that! I love what a loyal fan you are that you won't be wearing purple! There are so many other great choices for spring though!

  12. I'm with you, not too drawn to ultra violet! I think it's kinda funny about the color of the year, who cares, right? Wear what you love regardless of the color!

  15. I love the shade of maroon you are wearing. The purple is really bright and looks like it might be fun to wear in spring or summer!
