Colour Your World | #20 Pantone Snorkel Blue

It’s been a while since my last Pantone post.

So much for one every couple of months eh?!

There’s been so much going on recently though, it’s hardly surprising. We’ve barely been at home and the couple of free days that I do have — during the week when the boys are at nursery — seem to be over in a flash.

I certainly don’t seem to be able to fit as much in as I’d like. But hey.

Better than kicking my heels and wishing for something to do. I’d much rather be busy, than not.

The next colour in the palette for this year is Pantone Snorkel Blue.

Personally, I’d probably label this one ‘French Navy’ but I always love Pantone’s names for their colours — and Snorkel Blue is a lot more pictorial — so I’ll let it slide ;)

We’ve had a fair few blues since I started this series; Aquamarine, Scuba Blue to name a couple and, actually, this shade is not dissimilar from Classic Blue that I featured in February last year.

It’s such a fresh shade — looks gorgeous in an interior setting — and can be paired with so many lovely colours to make it really pop. Clash with fuchsia pink or orange or tone it down and layer with other shades of blue for a really restful feel.

But, all that said, I’m not doing an interior post this time round!

As my little sister is pregnant at the mo, with our families’ exciting new arrival due in the next few weeks, I thought I’d dedicate this post to her and collate some products for all pregnant and new mums everywhere.

I remember at the end of my pregnancy — and also in the first few months after I’d had the twins — stylish is the last thing I felt.

But just trawling through some of the lovely things that are available at the mo,  everything from discreet nursing tops — and cardigans to protect your modesty when breastfeeding — to lovely change bags, makes me think that you can still be pretty stylish, if you’ve a mind to be.

Here are my fave picks.
