Color Post: Tantalizing Teal

Good Evening Dahhhlings,

Since throwing my Sister's Bachelorette Party this weekend and staying the night in a beautiful, beautiful room at a hotel adorned in Teal... I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. So much so, that I'm questioning my black/purpleish bedspread in favor of this tantalizing color.

Thus, I present an inspired color post this evening... behold the beauty of Teal:

(I may or may not have thrown in a couple of me in my new favorite Teal shoes. Which ones? Hint: all images from me I always brand with my Blog name)

I hope you are as inspired by Teal as I am right now. Before I go, y'know what else is inspiring me lately?

The fact that my Dad dug out the good 'ol Super NES. I may have the skills of an 80-year-old when it comes to these new 3-D, war games (kids these days...) but I am quite the skilled player at Super NES.

{The Boy and Me on a Wine/Dinner/Super NES date... spectacular!!!}

In contrast, my Dad is having trouble finding his long-lost talent...

{Note that Donkey Kong & Diddy are nowhere to be found. They have just plummeted to their deaths on my Dad's watch. Sorry Dad.}

Have a spectealacular Friday!

(wow. lame)

Your dad is so cute... and he looks so serious with his games.

i almost bought those same shoes but then decided against it. I couldn't justify the purchase which is a first. I won't even tell you where i saw them in case you paid full price. Lol.

Anyway, love teal! One of my favorite colors ever!

Julia said...

My room was this colour once. I loved it!

daisychain said...

Beautiful post, I am loving teal right now.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Ah teal is goood! In moderation though, I think I prefer it as an accent rather than going teal all over, be it an outfit or a room interior or something... Cool teal nail polish too! And lol at "specTEALacular" :)

the "L" spot said...

LovE love LOVe teal!!!! And peacocks I was glad to see them in your teal collection!! I am so with you on old school games I rule at Mario party but can't for the life of me win any game on the PS3!!!

Panty Buns said...

After viewing all the beauteous teal in this post it's clear to me that I don't own enough of it. I modeled a teal floral blouse on mu blog, but I'd love to own a teal ruffled cap sleeve lace babydoll as well. I like the teal eyeshadow and nailpolish and some of those dresses are gorgeous. What beautiful outfits! Michele Obama's dress and especially the outfit pictured next to it on the left with the satin belt in a huge bow are beautiful.

ashlina said...

LOVE----ING EVERYTHING!!! wow. what a fabulous post. teal is my most favorite favorite color for the shoes....i love yours.

littlemissjuicy said...

Love it!!! Such pretty things/stuff.
I wore a similar colour tonight...not really, it goes more on the greenish side, but still. Might be posting it up. =)

Kinsey Michaels said...

you are so cute Caitlin. I absolutely love the color teal too, it has always been a favorite. It is so vibrant and pretty. these photos were a great source of inspiration!!! when i finally get around to re-doing my blog's layout, teal will definitely be incorporated. love your shoes too!

Nathalie said...

There are so many things I like about this post... loving the colour, first of all (gorgeous shoes, lady :) ) And Emma Watson looks gorgeous. Let me tell you that I once painted my bedroom in this colour and I couldn't sleep in it anymore as it felt so uncomfortable... was really weird.
I am also a lover of the old nintendo games, I am just not very good at 3D games... totally lost
Have a great weekend!!!!

Kinsey Michaels said...

p.s. i am now following you on twitter! and i added you to my fab bloggers list :)

Nikosmommy said...

I'm lovin' teal right now too (your shoes are the hotness). It's kinda right up there with Turquoise, nude and grey for me. Yellow and orange are not far behind. I love a bright shoe to add a bam of colour when you're wearing an otherwise neutral outfit like grey or black!

Kara said...

Oh so in love with teal and all shades of greens and blues lately!! I gotta get me some fierce shoes like that...yum.

B.M.H said...

It is said that blue means sad. But Lady, you made me feel so happy with those inspirations!!

Lovely pictures and beautiful blog!

Take care!

Johnny Utah said...

Froso said...

I have a question for you: Are those shoes Jessica Simpson ones? Because I tried on a similar pair and i want to buy them now, because your picture reminded me of those beautiful babies! Kisses!
