Be Not Afraid of Color

I love wearing color.

In fact, just today I wore green twill J Crew slacks with an orange Lands End Canvas button-up sweater and a muti-colored, jewel-toned Anthropologie necklace with my leopard print Dankos. Seriously - I know it sounds like a crazy person put me together this morning, but it made me happy. Plus, I certainly had the green thing going on.

I had three comments about my "colorful attire" before I got out of the elevator this morning.

So obviously, I'm not afraid to wear color. One of the reasons I love Boden and Anthropologie is because their clothing is so colorful. Talbots, another popular mall favorite that would typically fall into the "drab" category, is bringing it this spring with lots of color. If you look at the current selections on Gap, J Crew,  Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, etc., right now - everything looks so drab, basic and boring (in my opinion) - and black.

Now, I love to wear black too, but I always throw in a pop of color if I can. It just seems to lift my spirits. Plus, I don't buy into that whole black makes you look skinnier thing. But maybe I should?

Current color obsession: yellow. Specifically, I really want some yellow shoes.I don't even know if I have anything that would go with a pair of yellow shoes, but they just look so darn fun.

  1. I realized yesterday, when looking for a green, St. Patty's Day shirt, that I don't have any color in my closet! I am guilty of wearing black, browns, whites, and ocassionally reds all the time. I need to 'spring' it up too! I love those earrings by the way...thanks for the inspiration! Time to go shopping!

  3. I am a color loving girl, too! That is the main reason I harbot a good deal of Lilly Pulitzer love in my heart.

    BTW, I picked up a cute pair of yellow shoes last week...I am sure there is an outfit out there calling their name! LOL

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies.

Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
