Weekly Recap #43, 2021

What a whirlwind of a week! I was so nervous before starting senior year that it would be disappointing without so many of my friends who graduated in the spring, but it’s safe to say that this school year has been an absolute blast so far. One of my best friends from high school visited me in Denver this weekend, so we were running around like madmen trying to squeeze in as much as possible in the two and a half days she was here.

Way back in January, as I forced my dad to help me take a million blog photos before heading back to school, I got the idea to do a blog post about this year’s Pantone Colors of the Year—nothing special, since I’ve done posts on the annual colors in the past (see my Ultra Violet look here and Living Coral outfit here). But considering that I have very few yellow items in my closet, and none were quite the right shade, I wanted to get a lil’ creative with this yellow wall from my birthday photoshoot and use that as my outfit’s yellow. I finally got around to taking the photos last weekend, so without further ado, here are this year’s Pantone Colors of the Year: ‘Illuminating’ and ‘Ultimate Grey’! Continue reading “Pantone Problems”
