PANTONE-Inspired Spring Color Challenge: Day 3: Lemon Zest

It's day three of the PANTONE-inspired challenge! You can read about the color challenge here.

Day 1: Emerald Day 2: African Violet Day 3: Lemon Zest Day 4: Linen Day 5: Poppy Red

Today's color is Lemon Zest. I cannot explain how happy this color makes me! I definitely need to buy more of it, considering I only have a tank top and a scarf in this beautiful shade.

Today is a more casual look, one that I would wear over the weekend. Please excuse my hair, by the way--it was originally in a ponytail and still drying, but I let it loose for pictures because my hair looks weird pulled back in pictures! It was also raining...Anyway, I love this outfit because it's extremely comfortable, but it also looks a little more put together than just a t-shirt and jeans or sweatpants. The Lemon Zest pop of color really makes it interesting and fun.

Want to join in this Pantone-Inspired challenge? Pick a top, bottom, accessory, or pair of shoes in the color for the day and show off your spring colors with us! We linked up to Heidi’s blog on Monday and Tuesday and will be finishing out the week here at The Modern Austen (Wednesday-Friday.)

We are so excited for this link party and encourage all of you to participate! Don’t have all of the colors? That’s okay! Just participate whenever you can. Don’t have a blog? Don’t sweat it! We’d love to see your comments of how you wore your color and you could email us your photos, too. At the end of the week, Heidi and I will pick our favorite looks from the week and feature them in a wrap-up post!
