PANTONE-Inspired Spring Color Challenge: Day 5: Poppy Red

It's the LAST day of the PANTONE-inspired challenge! You can read about the color challenge here. I am sure I can also speak for Heidi when I say thank you! We had an idea, we worked hard to put it together, and we had so much fun participating and seeing all of your outfits. We really appreciate your participation!

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

Today's color is Poppy Red! You've probably already seen my growing obsession with this color in this dress and these pants, but the pants are back in a totally new outfit. I think these are probably one of my favorite spring purchases ever.

I. Love. This. Outfit. Honestly, I would never have worn green and poppy red together before without it reminding me of Christmas, but I wore this and didn't think of anything but sunshine and spring. I felt so confident and put-together. If it weren't for this challenge, I probably never would have put this together. In fact, this whole week has challenged me in such a fun and inspirational way! All of your outfits have been so much fun to look at and I have so many new ideas to remix my closet. Thanks again for sharing with me and Heidi!

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 are 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. Soon, Heidi and I will pick our favorite looks from the week and feature them in a wrap-up post!
