Freesia

The last color in the Pantone-inspired Challenge is Freesia, which means bright yellow to us laymen (and women). We don’t have freesias here in Vietnam but I’ve seen them in LA, and aside from yellow, I remember they are also bright pink and purple and white, so “yellow” isn’t the first color that came to my mind when I heard “freesia”. As pretentious as “hemlock” or “cayenne” is, at least those things have consistent colors. But I’ve given up on trying to make sense of these names. I’d just bring out my yellow flats and call it a day.

And as silly as those names are, it’s been a super fun challenge. A big thank you to Heidi and Marissa. I needed that. Hopefully there will be one next fall too!

    This look is lovely! That shirt is so unique, and I love the pops of color your bracelet and shoes give the whole ensemble.

  4. I’m really really glad you participated again. Prepping for these challenges is a lot of work, but it’s always worth it during the week! Love the flats 🙂 I’m hoping to continue these challenges in the seasons to come!

  5. LOVE. It’s got a bit of “cool girl” edge with the leather pocket and the cuff. And those bright yellow patent leather flats are the perfect touch! 🙂

  8. Yellow isn’t what comes to mind for me, either. Definitely think of freesia as pink.
