I’m not quite ready to move on from summer, or another summer color palette. This summer color palette is inspired by the Ocean City, NJ boardwalk. I didn’t grow up in the North East, so boardwalks filled with arcades and airbrushed shirts are not a point of nostalgia for me. Now, I don’t feel like it’s summer until I have had a few trips to Margate. Each day at the shore is like a mini-vacation from being an adult.

A few weeks ago my baby sister came to visit me from Colorado and we made a trip to Ocean City. I love the feeling I get walking around the rides area of the boardwalk – the neon lights, cotton candy and sugar-high kids running circles around their parents, haha! This week’s palette captures some of that energy using vibrant, neon-like colors and a deep black. Combine the brighter colors with a soft white outer glow, and your text with pop right off the page like the best kind of neon sign! Enjoy -xx
