This year's color palette.

When Pantone revealed its color of the year, it was a little perplexing. Is it purple? Is it blue? Very Peri, the color institute's first shade to be formulated just for the occasion, is a "red violet infused blue hue" that "highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us," per VP Laurie Pressman. 

Still not clear on the purple versus blue thing. But by now, we're experts at making uncertainty look good.

Does Covi care about the color of her harness? Honestly rude of you to ask. But nobody gets uncertainty better than a pampered Seattle pup: Outside means walk! Inside means warm. Wild One makes super high-quality dog accessories that look so good they function as human ones, too.
