Are you curious year after year, which colour is chosen by Pantone as the colour of the year? I always can't wait to know and this year I especially love the chosen colour: 2012 was the year of Tangerine Tango, 2013 is the year of Emerald. Pantone says about Emerald: "Lively. Radiant. Lush... A colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony." I absolutely agree with this statement!

As you might have noticed, emerald appears again and again in my outfits. I have the feeling that it enhances not just my well-being, but the colour of my complexion as well. I never feel ugly, while wearing emerald. I didn't know about the colour of the year, when I chose my New Year's Eve outfit, now it makes me smile that I even called the post "Emerald Fireworks". What a promising start of the year!

If you don't wear emerald, I strongly recommend it to you. It's an absolutely flattering colour and makes you dream about the Emerald City in the Land of Oz, where everything is built of emeralds, other jewels and green glass. I think this colour makes every girl pretty, no matter what skin or hair colour she has.

Do you think Emerald is a good choice as colour of the year and will you wear it?


  1. I love emerald!! I've always loved the gem as well and its deep colour, so wonderful and magical looking. Plus this shade is in peacocks and I love them :) I think it's a great colour to emerge from this cold bitter grey winter with!! So wonderful. I hope you have a marvellous day my dear!! xoxo

  2. The Lime Crime lipstick looks gorgeous!

  3. Mag die Farbe auch sehr, das Kleid hat es mir am meisten angetan :-)

  4. I'm definitely going to wear it! My favourite colours are blue and green and (like petrol) emerald is a lovly combination of both. I LOVE Pantone anyway... ;-)
