shannon silver wears the 2019 pantone colour of the year: living coral!

Long time no talk! I’ll talk more about that tomorrow but today is all about the Pantone Colour of the Year:

Living Coral

I am digging it in a major way & really look forward to seeing it in full force as the year goes.

I love it from interiors to clothing to beauty.

I’m a fan since it has both oceanic & sunset vibes. From the living coral in the sea to the shades of coral as the sun sets, I just can’t get enough of it.

It’s a colour that energizes & soothes at the same time. The other day, I was feeling a little meh so I threw on a coral button down & a bright lip and it immediately brought my mood up! Isn’t it so fun how colours can do that?

When I think living coral, I think of the glow of the sunset as seen here.

I’ve mentioned here that sunsets are something that just set my soul on fire – it’s a sacred time for me, so it’s been fun to celebrate the colour full force.

HERE is my favourite way to wear Living Coral!

I have a breezy coral button down from Express {this but sold out in coral}. Per usual, I sized up! I love the looser, breezier fit of tops. It just has such a luxe yet effortless vibe to it… basically lazy luxury in a nutshell!

With the oversized shirts, I like to leave the bottom 2-3 buttons unbuttoned and then tuck half of it in. Also seen here!

This fiery shade complements blues SO WELL so it’s a match made in heaven with denim! Especially a vintage wash. Here I’m wearing it with the Jordi Kick Crop from Reformation – this deserves a post of it’s own but it’s my fav jean style of all time and I have like 4 different washes of it.

& of course, you can always wear it with some low rise jeans 😉

OH! & can’t forget a punchy coral lip! I’m wearing the Sephora Smooth Shine Crayon in Lucky Charm & love it.

& here is my Lazy Luxury: Living Coral moodboard!

Are you loving Living Coral as much as I am?

I love how multi-dimensional it is and the feel good vibes it just oozes… not to mention, it’s a perfect pairing with my sunset playlist aka my fave playlist of all time 😉

See ya tomorrow!
