Pantone Color of the Year: Marsala


I don't know about you, but I'm pretty obsessed with Pantone's color of the year for 2015, named marsala. It's a beautiful burgundy-meets-red wine that's easy to incorporate into almost any outfit. Thus, this mood board I created on Polyvore incorporates some pretty marsala items.

I currently own a Calvin Klein bag, Ann Taylor loafers and Nordstrom cardigan in this rich hue, and I just added a gorgeous new dress to my marsala collection! I found the cutest dress in a floral print and marsala trim by 81 Poppies at Hasana in Chicago. It's made of silk so it's super breathable and comfy. I can wear it lounging at home or out with leggings, a jacket and booties. In the warmer months ahead, I look forward to wearing it by itself without leggings or a coat! How do you love to rock the color of the year?
