What happens when emerald is paired with lovely shades of aqua and turquoise? Something pretty spectacular. That’s what! Perfect for Summer or Spring, this pretty palette had me at hello. I’m loving all the variations in color. The brightness of the emerald has a way of instantly capturing the eye, while the softness of the aqua hues keeps this palette feeling sophisticated and sweet.

My obsession with sweet sparkles continues with this lovely little palette of pink of gold. Because I can’t think of a more fun and festive way to say ‘i do’ than with a dazzling dose of sparkle! I don’t know about you, but glittery gold sequins really do have a way of inspiring me. Want to add a touch of pizzazz to your party? These colors will surely do the trick!

I don’t think it’s any secret that I’m absolutely in smitten with the color mint! And for many reasons. But have you ever considered pairing it with shades of lavender and plum? I just love how these colors come across as soft and airy. But it’s also great how you can increase the intensity here and there by adding a pop of deeper color! So far from boring. Am I right?

Shades of purple really are pretty, wouldn’t you agree? Mix in some fabulous metallics like this glittery gold shade and you’ve got what I like to call a ”perfect palette.” I’m really liking the feel of this palette because I feel like it incorporates a touch of whimsy all while mixing both modern and vintage styles. So totally different (in a good way!)

Gold has a way of coming across as elegant and chic. And when it comes to selecting your wedding colors, I can’t help but feel swept away by how dreamy this feels. To me, this just screams special. Because seriously, guys. There’s not a lot in this world that can catch my eye quite like glittery gold.

I’m slightly smitten with all things orange! And I think it’s pretty safe to say that my little love affair for this gorgeous hue is only growing. Because when paired with earthy greens and peach undertones something pretty special happens. It’s the perfect blend of soft and subtle and bold and bright if you ask me. And if uniqueness is what you’re after, this palette is surely that!
