My Picks for the Color of the Year - Radiant Orchid

So the word around town is that Radiant Orchid is the color of the year. At first I didn't understand all the hoopla around it, but the more and more I look at the color, I fall in love. It's absolutely stunning.
Below are some of my picks to incorporate Radiant Orchid into your wardrobe and beauty routine. 
1. China Glaze Purple Panic
I think this polish is so pretty. When I saw one of my friends wearing this color a couple of years ago, I immediately swooned over her nails. It looked so good on her! I have yet to pick it up, but I'm hoping to own it soon.

2. MAC Eyeshadow in Stars N Rockets
This is an eyeshadow I heard a lot about via Youtube years back. At first I had no desire to buy it. I'm the kind of girl who rarely buys single shadows, especially if they're not a neutral color.

For some reason, I put this on my makeup wishlist a few months ago and I'm dying to get my hands on it now. With the color of the year being Radiant Orchid, I think this would be a perfect addition to my collection.

3. Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. Bag
Unfortunately, this bag is sold out, but I can see why. It's gorgeous! I've always thought the Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C.'s were too adorable, but this color is pure perfection.

I love me a good crossbody and I love how it makes a statement because of the bright color. It's bold and perfect to sport for spring.

4. Michael Kors Mid-Size Golden/Pink Stainless Steel Runway Three-Hand Watch 
I started noticing the trend of colored face watches about a month ago and I'm obsessed. A neutral colored watch with a pop of color on the face adds a little spice for the spring and summer.

I personally think Radiant Orchid looks beautiful paired with gold. This watch is a bit of an investment to incorporate the color of the year into your wardrobe, but I think it's worth it!

5. Revlon Lipstick in Wild Orchid
This is another makeup related item I am dying to get my hands on. I'll admit I'm a creature of habit. I love my neutral shadows and my nude lips. I hardly ever wear bright colors on my lips, but I really do want to branch out more and try new things.

Wild Orchid is a great color for the spring and it's an affordable product to purchase if you want to keep up with the trend. I think it's time to test the waters and add some color on my lips!

6. Lilly Pulitzer Elsa Top in Va Voom Purple
Well, it's no secret that I love Lilly, so when I saw that they had an Elsa Top in the color of the year I freaked out. I would love to have an Elsa in my wardrobe. It's so versatile!

It's an expensive Radiant Orchid purchase, but there's so much you could do with a top like this. Wear it under a blazer for a professional look, pair it with some white jeans for day look or rock it with a black bandage skirt for a sexy night out on the town. Your options are limitless!

These are the Radiant Orchid items I've been drooling over. What are some of yours?

Love and desserts,
