Dress With Purpose :: Be Inspired :: Colors of 2013 and 2014 :: Radiant Orchid Jacket

by DressWithPurpose

Happy Thursday!


My Purpose:: Hope you all had a great New Year’s Day! Our client party was a huge success and still am in shock that we are in 2014.  Today I will be in the my hubby’s office most of the day, which a quick stop by the house and then home to do some house work… (why does that always seem like a never ending battle, lol)! 🙂

My Inspiration :: Well since yesterday was all about team and supporting my hubby, today it is back to this week’s inspiration and since we are in 2014 I was inspired by the color for 2014 Radiant Orchid.  When I first thought of putting this color out there as a challenge I didn’t think I had anything in my wardrobe similar to that color… well to my surprise I did, so today’s jacket which I called magenta in the past, well today it is radiant orchid (lol)! Of course one of my favorite colors for the year was navy so I combined the two together and I am pretty happy with the combination!  Choose Everyday to Dress With Purpose!
