When it comes to neutrals, I am a grey girl through and through.  But I've noticed a lot of beige tones in fashion and home decor this summer, specifically sand (it was one of Pantone's spring 2014 colors). And I realized that I've been ignoring it for much too long.  It may not be the most exciting on the color scale, but it brings a nice balance to just about any bold color with which you pair it.  Sand also, of course, brings to mind the beach and summertime, which are two of my favorite things.  So before summer starts to wind down, I decided that I just had to pay tribute to this very current summery shade (which also happens to be a great transition color into fall) via a Color Love post.

What are your thoughts on sand (or beige tones in general)?  Too boring, or the perfect neutral?

  2. I love the scarf! I think this color works well as a base color so you can add lots of other color to it. Or as an accent color. That keeps it from being too boring :)

  3. Neutrals forever! You can never have too many as far as I'm concerned. Half the time I don't even both with an accent color if I'm wearing all neutrals. :-)

  7. When it comes to neutrals - and non-neutrals, for that matter - I'm a black, white and grey kind of girl. I love the look of sand, especially in hats, but it's so similar to my skintone that I end up looking, well, nude when I wear it! I can picture these pieces looking just lovely on you, though.
