Will Living Coral Be Part Of Your Personal Style?
Pantone, the world’s leading authority on color trends, has deemed Living Coral the Color of the Year. Is this sunny color part of your personal style?

Even though, and it’s embarrassing to admit, I don’t 100% understand the rules of football, I’m excited about the Super Bowl, and am kinda hoping for a Super Bowl Party invite. And that leads me to wondering what I’d wear for that party.
