Color Crush: Poppy

Well, good morning.  It's very early in the morning right now, as in 1:54 am.  I just woke up from one of those "I'm just going to lay down for five min" naps.  Five minutes turned into four hours and here I am wondering why couldn't I just press "post".  So let's all pretend that this actually went up yesterday and I'll see you guys back here later on today with a new post like this never happened. :) 

Perfect for spring, poppy is an orange infused candy red that is universally flattering. It's a great color to wear throughout spring and summer; just looking at it makes me happy. Maybe if I wear it enough, it'll scare away all this dreary rain we've been getting all week. 

Three of my favorite colors to wear with this vibrant hue are white, salmon, and lime green. White would be the most common approach, since it's a neutral and would really allow the color to pop. A muted color, like salmon, acts like a neutral toning down but complimenting the rest of your look.  If you're feeling a little wild, lime green should be your go-to choice. Wearing two bright colors at once can get tricky, so make sure the rest of your accessories are neutral. Keep your makeup minimal; a dewy complexion with a little bronzer will brighten up your face.  Maybe, just maybe, a swipe of poppy lipstick to finish off the look. 

What do you think of this pretty hue?
