It’s  been a little while since the last time I posted a Color Crush moodboard, but I’ve been particularly tickled by turquoise recently, and can’t stop loving it in everything from art to accessories to fall ensembles!

Besides just sharing a bit of visual inspiration with you here, I thought it would also be fun to take a deeper look at the meaning behind the hue…

The Color Turquoise // Stands for open communication and clarity of thought, and is thought to help strengthen the connection between the heart and the spoken or written word.  It is thought to be a color that encourages friendships and the desire to live a joyful life.

A combination of blue and a small amount of yellow, it fits in on the color scale between green and blue. It radiates the peace, calm and tranquility of blue, which combines perfectly with the balance and growth of green and the uplifting energy of yellow.

This has honestly been one of my favorite recent posts to put together, and I just can’t deny how inspired I am by the deep blues, cool teals and really any ocean-inspired tones.

AND – Just in case you’d like to hop aboard the turquoise train with me… here are a few pretty picks from around the web that fall into my latest Color Crush!


Scarf // MotoX // Flats // Nail Polish
Earrings // Handbag // Shorts // Heels

Do you wear or find yourself reaching for much of this shade in your day to day life?  I’d love to hear about YOUR favorite current color (or a combo!), and if you’d like – I’d even love to try and turn it into an upcoming S&P post! :)

      Agree! SO fresh, and would evoke a sort of chic seaside scheme!
