Best Buys to Celebrate the Pantone Color of the Year: Living Coral

This year's Pantone Color of the Year is called Living Coral and it's the absolute prettiest shade of peach ever! Last year I searched for the best products in the Color of the Year, which was Ultra Violet (read that post and shop those finds here!) and I've been so excited to put something similar together for this year's color because it's one of my favorite shades ever. My mom is absolutely obsessed with anything and everything in this shade of peach - I kid you not, she has a closet FILLED with peach/coral colored clothing, shoes and probably 15+ peach nail polishes, lol! Needless to say she's a bit excited about this year's Color of the Year. ;)
From home decor to clothes and accessories, here's everything you could possibly want in this year's beautiful and vibrant color!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21

1. Block Heel Slide Sandals: if the shoes have a block heel, you can bet I'm interested! ;) They're just the comfiest ever and these are no different! They're 40% off right now so get them and get a head start on your spring/summer 2019 wardrobe!

2. Coral PopSocket: one of those accessories/things you never realize how much you need until you actually have one, ya know?!

3. Off-the-Shoulder Sweater: I bought this in gray and then realized it came in a few other colors, including this coral color and ordered it right away! It's stunning - you can dress it up with jeans and heels for a night out, wear it more casually or even more cozy with your favorite pair of leggings. It's slouchy and has a slightly oversized fit but I'd recommend getting your normal size. It's 40% off and only $29 right now!

4. Straw Clutch: a perfect beach trip bag that comes in a ton of color options and is under $40! Practical, cute, holds a ton and under $40.

5. YSL Lipstick in 'Corail Spontini': the YSL Lip Stains and Lipsticks are the best quality lip color I've EVER used, ever.

6. NARS Blush in 'Torrid': the prettiest coral blush shade EVER. I love the more peach/coral colors when I'm tan and this one has a slight shimmer that's just enough and not too overdone.

7. Chanel 'Coralium' Nail Polish: I've never used nail polish from Chanel's line but always hear good things about it! This is the ultimate Living Coral shade - absolutely stunning!

8. Google Home Mini: isn't it so fun that the Google Home comes in this coral color?! If you don't have a Google Home/Amazon Echo or something similar, you have to have one - it really is useful to have around your house! I have mine in my kitchen and it's a huge help when I'm making grocery lists, need a measurement for a recipe or just have a random question!

9. Coral Silicone Apple Watch Band: for anyone with an Apple Watch, you know how fun it is to switch out the bands - and you can get this one for just under $10!

10. Beaded Statement Earrings: every time I see a new pair of beaded earrings I want to get them and pack them for my next beach vacation! They're so fun!

11. Faux Fur Coat: the prettiest faux fur jacket ever! It also comes in black and a deep/mustard yellow. It's on sale right now for $51!

12. Coral Slide Sandals: an easy pair of sandals to throw on for the pool, beach, in your travels and so much more. They're easy to wear and slip on and off and a must have for the warmer weather and months!

13. Coral Textured Throw Pillow: something different and unique to spruce up your living room!

14. Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle: these are game changers! If you haven't tried an insulated tumbler like this yet you have to get your hands on one. I travel with mine and take it everywhere I go!

15. 2019 Planner: this planner has a spot for everything and even comes with a set of stickers! I'm still looking for my 2019 planner (better late than never right?? ;) and this one is in the running!

16. 'L' Tumbler: if your name begins with an 'L', you're in luck! ;) This tumbler is still available in most letters, but the 'L' comes in this beautiful shade of coral. It's only $9!

17. Bow Espadrille Mules: ok, I bought these last year and they were $90 when they first were released... THEY'RE $39 NOW. I swear that always happens to me, but hey - at least you guys can get a great deal on them now!! Haha - they're sooo comfortable (and I find that open-back mules aren't always the comfiest) and make such a statement! They're my favorite spring shoe and I take them on spring/summer trips with me all of the time.

18. NARS Lipstick in 'Catherine': prettiest peach lip shade!

19. Coral Striped Kitchen Towel Set: there's a couple of things I love to switch out in my home each season and my kitchen towels are one of them! It's the little things, lol!

20. Coral V-Neck Sweater: Old Navy is always one of my go-to stores for simple but cute sweaters! This will be great for transitioning from winter to spring (yes, I'm already thinking about that!) or even to layer with while it's still colder out with winter whites.

21. Coral Arm Chair: add a pop of color to your living room or even bedroom with this chair - loooove this color for home decor!
