Honeysuckle is hawt

One thing I love the most about spring and summer fashion is the return of bold and bright colors. Every year, there’s one color that stands out that I have to have, and this year that color is honeysuckle.


It’s everywhere!
Shoes, handbags, tops, skirts, jewelry, dresses… Oh my 😉

I just love how it’s more pink than orange, super girly and screams summertime.

(It matches the blog layout nicely too) 😀

Here are some of my favorite honeysuckle-hued pieces:

How to match:

-gold accessories

-warm brown and earth tones



-navy and white

Have you hopped on the honeysuckle trend yet? What’s your favorite piece? (Feel free to link in the comments if you find something amazing!)

    I have the OPI polish I think! It’s how I ring in summer! 🙂

    I don’t get it, honeysuckles are golden/yellow! I love this shade of pink, but would have never thought in a million years it’d be called honeysuckle 😛 I want that BCBG dress (and also a reason to wear it would be cool!).

      That’s exactly what I was thinking!!!! Weird to think pink with honeysuckle, I’ll take anything pink!

      • Kelly @foodiefresh on June 14, 2011 at 4:34 pm

        That was my initial reaction too. I love the color, but honeysuckle is yellow. But, I’m a fan of anything pink!

    • Amanda on June 17, 2011 at 1:58 pm

      I’m glad I wasn’t the only one thinking this. I didn’t pay attention to the entire post because I was trying to think of a point in time (like pre-bloom or something) that honeysuckles have pink in them…

        Here in Minnesota we have honeysuckle that is mostly this color with yellow tips. 🙂

    love the coral/honeysuckle colors for this season. i have quite a few dresses and accent pieces in the color and my favorite colors to pair them with has been a brushed gold and navy/white. LOVE that BCBG dress!

  4. Laura @ Meet Virginia on June 14, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    I love that color! I picked my blog header to be “honeysuckle” colored because I heard it was the color of the year! 🙂

  5. Danielle on June 14, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    I love the Express dress, it looks comfy!

  6. Hayley @ Hayley Daily on June 14, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    I adore that color and that DRESS (my gawd!)…unfortunately I don’t think honeysuckle goes with my bright red hair. :/ I do wear it on my nails though. I have an OPI color very similar to that (Strawberry Margarita).

  7. Holly @ Pink Runner on June 14, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Ahhhh I loveeeeeee honeysuckle because it’s PINK!! 🙂 Loveeeee the dresses!

  8. Laura @ prettylittlewords on June 14, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Loooooooove the Express dress — making me want to go shopping now! I agree, this color is the perfect mix between magenta and coral 🙂

  9. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on June 14, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    LOOOOVE that shade! You’ve inspired me to hunt down some honeysuckle nail polish!

  10. Monika @ Powered by Paprika on June 14, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    I absolutely adore that nail polish color.. fighting the urge not to order it online right now!

  11. Emily on June 14, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    I am loving this color, too! I just found a dress online that I am going to get in this color, one sleeved, something new to me!

  12. lightlygildedlily on June 14, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    I ADORE the first dress. By the way, so happy for you + the pilot. I’ve had to catch up on a lot of posts and I’m thrilled you’re going to introduce a little zumba-ing plane flying goat cheese eating bundle of love to the world 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 14, 2011 at 6:49 pm

      haha! thank you 🙂

  13. Alanna on June 14, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    I love that nail color! I have to get some! I just bought a purse in that color and I’m loving it for summer!

  14. Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews on June 14, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    I love that color! Very fun for summer.

  15. Theorist on June 14, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    I love that color! So that is what it is called. I used to have a ton of shirts from jcrew outlet in this color…
    I also think it looks fab with a spot (or 2) of turquoise, yellow, or olive green. Just saying ; ^)

  16. SaraRM on June 14, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    I must buy that nail polish ASAP! I also love the express dress, I almost bought it the other day but they didnt have my size… 🙁

  17. Ilana on June 14, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    um. those shorts. getting them right now.
    i’ve NEVER been a pink girl but this year this color is screaming at me. love it.

  18. Laura @ Backstage Pass on June 14, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    LOVE this color! I have a flowy top from Bebe in this hue that just feels like summer!
    I love that this shade goes with nice antique wash denim, too.

  19. Keelie (SweatEqualsSuccess) on June 14, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    I’m DROOLING over those topshop shorts! With a cream colored cami and nude platform heels??!! GURRRRLLLL……

    • Fitnessista on June 14, 2011 at 2:34 pm

      omg YES.

  20. Kara on June 14, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    I’m gonna combine two recent fashion posts.. I so badly want your new MJ bag IN honeysuckle. Anyone have any idea where I could find something like that???

  21. Mac on June 14, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    Pink is my favorite color and I’m loving that shade!

  22. Chelsea @ Go Chelsea Go! on June 14, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    I was actually looking at dresses online in that color! Rent The Runway has a Zac Posen dress in that color that is just gorgeous.

  23. britt on June 14, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    i am loving the nordstrom top and express dress. this is such a great color!!

  24. Leanne (Bride to Mrs.) on June 14, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    I looooooove this color. I really wish express would ship to Canada because i really love their stuff.

  25. Kelly b on June 14, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    So glad I found your blog about a year ago! As a mom, I am so excited to see you start a family. I would love to see some fun boot camp style workouts to do on a track and maybe even with a jogging stroller!
    thanks for what you do!

  26. Holly @ The Runny Egg on June 14, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    My uncle got married a few weekends ago and his now wife (my aunt in law I suppose!) picked honeysuckle as her wedding color — it was so summery and so beautiful!

  27. Christine (The Raw Project) on June 14, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Love the color, so bright and cheery. I actually have a similar color on today, so I guess so. 🙂

  28. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on June 14, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    Oh I am loving the honeysuckle color. I have always loved peachey/fuscia-ish shades in the honeysuckle family. They are just so feminine and I love them. They look good on pale skin to tanned skin to dark skin, too, I think…universally flattering!

    I got married in a hot pink/honeysuckle-ish Betsey Johnson dress 🙂

  29. ashleyTIA on June 14, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    This color will look so good with your dark hair!

  30. Jill on June 14, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    I actually own the dress from the last picture — I’m excited to wear it to a casual summer wedding in a few weeks!!! Love honeysuckle 🙂 — I just didn’t know that was the name of it!

  31. Christina on June 14, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    I LOVE honeysuckle!! I almost want that to be the color of my girls bridal dresses for my wedding! I also see your nails have kept up, woot!!! Mine always chip within like 3 days.

  32. Leeanna on June 14, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    I am looking forward to hearing how your life changes over the next year and hearing about more great products you discover!

  33. mi-an on June 14, 2011 at 6:43 pm

    gosh this is one of my fave color (other one is purple)…so hawt!!

  34. Charliegirl on June 14, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    If you want a really pretty honeysuckle nail polish that’s free of all the yucky stuff try Zoya in Dana–I’m wearing it now!

  35. Melissa on June 14, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    that first BCBG dress is amazing!! hm, I have a couple weddings to attend…maybe I NEED it?? :p

  36. Jamie Escobar on June 15, 2011 at 1:57 am

    This is the color of the dress I bought to pick him up from the airport for R & R. (it might still be two months away…but a girl needs to be prepared) 🙂 I LOVE this color though!

  37. Sara K on June 15, 2011 at 3:32 am

    LOVE honeysuckle- and especially that D&G wallet…on sale?! For how much? I almost bought the black one last summer but couldn’t get myself to fork over the price considering I’d have very little left to put in the wallet

  38. Hannah on June 16, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    love the dress and this color!!! all of it!

  39. Kristi on June 17, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    LOVE this color.. It was the main color in my wedding and I still love it more than any other color, two years later! In fact, I bought one of the bridesmaid’s dresses for myself because I loved the color so much, lol. I’m glad it’s “hawt” now, too! 🙂
