It is that time of year again! Pantone has announced the color of the year, 2017! The color of 2017 is named by Pantone as “Greenery.”

Greenery of course is exactly what it’s name implies; it’s green. This is a natural green hue. It is a medium green which will be easy to wear as a neutral tone in 2017. Greenery also happened to be splashed all over the New York Fashion Week runways for the spring/summer 2017 seasons. You can read more about that here.

Here is a green moment from New York Fashion Week spring/summer 2017.

What do you think of Greenery for 2017? Is this a color you can see yourself wearing throughout the year?

I have to admit, I like Greenery! Green is already one of my favorite colors behind blue and purple. I have a few pieces in my wardrobe which are around this green hue, so I am looking forward to pulling them out to wear in 2017.

In addition to Greenery, look for military green in the spring/summer 2017 family of green hues. If Greenery isn’t your thing, you can look to military green as your way of rocking the green trend in 2017.

Although Greenery did appear on the runway quite often for the spring/summer 2017 season in New York, many designers mixed it into prints, as you can see above from Supima, rather than use it as a solid color. It should be interesting to see, now that Greenery was deemed the Color of the Year 2017, if it appears in a solid state on store shelves for spring, or if designers keep it mixed in patterns.

Stay tuned! I will be attending the shows at New York Fashion Week this upcoming February to see what will be hot for the fall/winter 2017/2018 seasons. Do you think Greenery will be a hot color for fall too? I will let you know!

Thanks for stopping by,

Casual winter look

casual fall outfit casual fall outfit bay area style blogger mansur gavriel handbags

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / MAC Lipstick / sweatshirt c/o SheIn (under $25!) / Mansur Gavriel handbag / Gap studded black jeans (on sale) / Kendra Scott druzy ring / Chanel Pink Rubber nail polish / Tory Burch booties (on major sale!!)

The cold winter temperatures are here! When it is cold outside, I love staying cozy in casual outfits. This particular outfit has become my go-to winter look on cold days. I love the casual, urban vibe of this sweatshirt from SheIn, and these cozy booties are so comfy!

Although cropped jeans, flares, and boyfriend jeans have moved past skinny jeans in popularity, I still love wearing my skinny jeans on cold days. They don’t let in any cold air! Love that! haha Maybe as temperatures rise in the spring season, I will go back to my boyfriend jeans, and my cropped jeans; but for now, skinny jeans are my comfort pants.

This is a great sweatshirt for winter. I love the hood on the back, which comes in handy when the wind kicks up and I want to protect my hair; as well as stay warm! What is even better, is the price! This cute little hoodie is priced under $25, making it an affordable comfort. Love that!

You can find my urban hoodie online here. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Do you have a tech savvy person on your holiday shopping list? Wondering how much you need to pay to get her something she will love? Don’t feel intimidated, there are some extremely affordable gift options for the tech savvy girl on your Christmas list from Ankit.

I was recently introduced to Ankit. They have so many fabulous gift products for everyone on our holiday shopping lists! I love all of their affordable tech gear. The noise cancelling headphones are amazing. Not only do they have a cute floral pattern, they actually cancel outside noise and allow you to enjoy what you are listening to. As a busy Mom who needs some “me time,” this is extremely luxurious! If you have someone who loves tech gadgets, and needs some “me time,” then these headphone will be the perfect gift!

If you have been following along, you know I attend fashion week twice a year. During fashion week, I am using my phone constantly without many opportunities throughout the day to charge it up. I rely on portable phone chargers to get me through the day. I love this portable phone charger by Ankit, It is slim, making it easy to slip inside the interior pocket of my handbag. It also charges my almost-dead iPhone 7 up to 100% in no time flat. Love that! If you have a busy girl on your holiday gift list, this is perfect! You can find my portable phone charger online here.

Lastly, when tooling around town, it is nice to be able to charge my phone. I love this car phone charger from Ankit. It has the cutest little pattern on it, and it works like a charm to keep me charged up while I am driving a long distance, or taxing my kids around. This too would be a great gift for the busy, tech savvy girl on your list. Love!

Ankit has so many fabulous tech gear gift items, you can’t wrong with your choice! Here are all my favorites from Ankit. They make great stocking stuffers as well as main gifts for under the tree. Love!
