Totally Craveable 2016 Planners

I’ve been loving my Whitney English / Blue Sky Day Designer, which sold out in a hot minute at Target earlier this year, but I’ve gotta admit that there are some new planner / agenda designs that have really caught my eye lately. If you’re in the market for a brand spankin’ new and totally craveable planner, then this post is for you!

I’ve put together a little collection of 2016 planners that feature everything from beautiful florals to watermelon slices (seriously cute!), plus plenty of planning power between the covers, of course. Here, check ’em out:

Trendspotting : Deep Blue Green

Is it blue? Is it green? It’s a little bit of both, and it’s absolutely gorgeous!

I love that more deep and dramatic colors, like deep blue green, are coming onto the scene. But no worries for those of you who can’t get enough of the light and bright colors that are still hella popular.

Deep blue green pairs just as well with peachy pink, ivory, and mint as it does with other deep and luscious hues like indigo, emerald green, and plummy purple (more on this soon). And I’m totally excited by the idea of deep blue green paired with neon pinks and yellows – gorgeous! Plus, it pairs so beautifully with the ultra popular metallics, especially gold and copper. Seriously, what’s not to love about this rich, luxe color?!

I cannot wait to see what’s in store for this luscious hue in 2016. Deep blue green is versatile, it’s dramatic, and it plays so well with other on trend colors that I think it’ll be popping up in plenty of places in the coming year.
