Emerald: The Color of the Year (and this weekend)

image via

Pantone's most recent color report for Fall 2013 lists emerald as the color of the year. And I must admit, it's pretty perfect timing for me to discover this. In case you forgot, Sunday is St. Patrick's Day, which kind of makes this weekend St. Patrick's weekend. I've never ever done anything to celebrate the holiday but this year a few of my friends and I are going all out. I'll be sure to let you know how that goes.

There's just something about St Patrick's Day traditions that doesn't resonate with me. The food seems a little boring, I don't like beer so Guinness is a no go, and then there's the green. Oh how I wish I could look as good as the woman in this picture when I wear green. 

Other than St. Patrick's Day celebrating, I plan to get a million things checked off my to do list over the next few days. Blogging, catching up on my favorite blogs, working on a few features for The Everygirl, going to a yoga class or two, doing laundry and, of course, attempting to catch up on sleep.

What are you up to this weekend? Will you be celebrating St. Patrick's Day?


  1. Uh, that dress! I wish I owned it, then I could wear it every. single. day.

  2. That dress is fabulous! I wish I had more green in my wardrobe. I'm actually going to see the Wild play here in Denver, so that should be fun! St. Patrick's day always gets a little crazy, but I'm hoping to join the fun late enough in the day to not regret it the next :) Have a fabulous time!

  3. This dress/photo is gorgeous! I've never been a big one for St. Patrick's day, but I love this color!
