Everything’s Coming Up (Radiant) Orchids

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!

Everything's Coming Up Orchids


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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

    • 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.

  5. 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?
