Red, White, and...PINK

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to do a post on Cupid's colors. Lately we've been seeing lots of color-blocked frocks featuring this bright red and fuchsia. 

We've been seeing lots of celebs sporting these fuchsia and poppy colored threads.

Try to avoid the Christmas-y red and go for a more cherry color

Love the way this red flower pops against the peach and white flowers

When it comes to cakes try not to make them look too Valentine's day oriented... aka avoid hearts and too much fluff. It is best to keep it simple like this cake featured above with raspberries and a rustic looking frosting.

Love the simplicity of this ombre detailed cake


Love this Poms by Pomtree. They also make them in a cherry polka dot print as well as DOZENS of other colors/prints. These are adorable to hang from a tree at an outdoor ceremony. 

This bright palette is very cheerful and can easily transition from summer to winter. 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! 


  1. Absolutely LOVE the Monique Lhuillier dress on the bottom right! I like how this color palate can add a feminine or girly splash without being too over the top. Do you think red can still work on all skin tones?

  2. Hi Jess! Great Question! Here's a tip... if you have cool tones in your skin try pink and blue-based reds like raspberry,ruby, cherry, and crimson. If you have warm tones in your skin try yellow and orange-based reds like poppy, fire-engine red, and deep tomato color.

    The Pantone color of the year is Tangerine Tango ( This is one color that tends to be universally flattering on my skin tones from olive colors to pale.

    Thanks for the comment Jess!
