Friday Flair: Black Watch Tartan


Tartan plaids are about as classic as they come and this time of year is definitely when we start to re-embrace them. As much as I love the classic red patterns, my favorite has to be the Black Watch Tartan with it’s Black, Hunter Green, and Navy combination.

Still Blushing


It’s been over a year since rose quartz or blush pink was named color of the year (and hit the ground running), and I still can’t get enough of it! I am so obsessed with Blush that it has carried over into all things Fall and I think it will carry over into the Winter as well. It’s a great neutral and pairs wonderfully with grey, black, brown, and even plum or burgundy. Frankly I think it’s here to stay!
