Happy Monday, dear friends! Jess and Brooke here, to discuss a very important topic.
Earlier this month, Pantone named “Radiant Orchid” the IT color of 2014, and as two Chicks who love to mix trendy with our classic (okay, sort of preppy) style and who love to shop – for ourselves, and for YOU – we had to seize the opportunity to scout out some new fitness attire in this vibrant shade of…is it pink? Is it purple? Who cares; it’s fabulous. Happy shopping!

What’s your favorite color? What do you think about Pantone’s choice? And, perhaps most importantly, what’s on your Christmas list this year?
This is critically important! I love it. Both the post and the color.
I need thatPatagonia vest. I think I have those Nike pants already. I had the gloves from nordstrom and lost them in the Berkshires.
Jess picked the vest and my first thought was “WANT!” But our weather does not warrant such purchases.
You could (and should) totally rock it though.
I think it’s a good excuse to come visit the northern folks this winter 🙂
You say that now, but ask Meri how annoying I was when we did the Rothman 8k and I reminded her how cold I was every three minutes.
Haha well if you had that best you’d be fine!
I am OBSESSED with the vest. And everything Patagonia, which is funny because I am normally a strictly J.Crew/Madewell kind of gal. I don’t know, maybe it’s the slightly crunchy side of me trying to get out?
I’m not normally a Patagonia person, but I am an LL Bean girl at heart (grew up in Maine, it’s require by law). I may have to see if they’ve got one that’s similar, but I do love the rainbow piece. I’m such a nerd.
ahhhhh i love this color! purple is my fav color. loooove that stella top from Nordstrom…. perhaps, i should alter my xmas list. i put postage stamps on it because i need them to address wedding things… but now that I think about it, that is rather lame. Practical. But lame.
I love that one too!
The year we got married, all my gifts were practical or from our registry. Even for my birthday. Adulthood is hard. Le sigh.
When is your wedding?
March 28! 🙂 so I’m getting into the tying up ends/ stressed out phase … Hehe 🙂
Yay! At midnight on NYE, you will shout, “I’m getting married this year!” That’s what I did, anyway.
Planning is so stressful but soon it will be over and then you really are onto the best things. 🙂
This works really well for me since it’s one of my FAVORITE colors. Score and score!
I know! We’re way ahead of the trend, since we already own all the pinky purple nail polishes.
My favorite color is yellow (yes, the worst color to wear – but my poor bridesmaids did have to wear it!) but I’m loving Pantone’s choice this year! I need more of this color in my life/running wardrobe! Thanks for all the pretty item links!
I am a yellow girl too! Actually, my favorite color is green, but I have lots yellow in my closet too.
LOVE the color. Fortunately for me, it is an accent color on my new kicks (ahem, scoots)! Asics must have thought it would look brilliant with silver, black, white, and neon yellow. They weren’t wrong. I also totally NEED that vest. Yep, need. My favorite colors are orange and green…but I don’t discriminate. All colors deserve a chance at being in my wardrobe.
Oh good! You get the vest. Next time I visit Meri, I can borrow it from you. We’re totally at the clothes-sharing stage in our relationship, right? 😉
Yay, new shoes!
I want all the clothes! But especially that vest it looks so comfy.
I think pantone did good. I love purple but blue is my numero uno.
Yes, blue! My middle girl loves what she calls “minty” but is really turquoise (shh, don’t tell her), so we have a lot of blue in our home, and currently, a blue Christmas tree (and pink for the oldest). So many pretty shades of blue.
I love this color! Great minds do think alike because both the gloves and the scarf from Nordstrom are on my Christmas wish list! 🙂 I love purple and my fiancee hates it! I have a lot of purple so I think he is going to have to learn to love it :p
He will definitely learn. 😉 Our bedroom and bathroom are painted different shades of purple, and I’m hoping for a purple rug next. There’s one in an ad my Facebook feed that is just dreamy.
Hope you get the scarf and gloves! When is your wedding?
