I am fresh back from a trip to NYC with a few girlfriends. Although the weather could have better (it rained for most of our trip) I was thrilled to get to the city and see all the new trends. As far as fashion, I will say that every single woman under the age of  about 70 was in boots….yes, every single one! Since I knew we would be walking for hours and hours every day (and the boots I currently own are not all that comfortable) I felt like a freak in my “walking shoes”. I did however buy a great pair of boots while there and now I just have to break them in.

Although we did see the new 911 memorial, this trip was primarily about shopping. We hit all the big name designer stores and I finally made it to ABC Carpet which I have wanted to go to for ages. Guess what I saw in all the stores and the store windows? Bright, bold, happy colors. Bright colors in clothing, bright colors in home furnishings and brightly colored accessories.


One color which I saw everywhere was Pantone’s color of the year, Tangerine Tango. I thought it would be fun to share  a few of my “I Spy Tangerine Tango” images from  NYC.

So how about you? Do you love Pantone’s color of the year as much as I do?
