Pretty in Periwinkle

Periwinkle. I always thought that was a funny color name. Though it sounds funny, it is quite a lovely color, so I was excited to see that a version of periwinkle (“Serenity”) was included in Pantone’s colors of the yearΒ for 2016, which was also in their Spring 2016 Fashion Color Report. Spring is also around when I made this duster coat that I’ve featured in today’s post.

I may have made it in the Spring, but it’s no doubt a GREAT transition coat. Since it is a duster, it’s more on the lightweight side, and doesn’t have any closures or pockets…something to throw on when you’re chilled, really. And that makes it just perfect for these increasingly chilly Fall mornings, days, and evenings.
