While other seasons have been all about the monochromatic, neutral look, this season I’ve been really into incorporating color. Color is such a statement without even realizing it always and I love that about it. It adds a level of excitement to every outfit you create.
What Colors Say About You
This season, I do not discriminate against any colors. I truly love them all and am having fun testing out different colors. Typically if you were to look in my closet, you would find lots of white, black, grey, basically any neutral, along with some blush, olive green and powder blue. While I still like all of those colors, I’ve also incorporated yellow and the occasional red to my wardrobe. I am really into yellow though…and blue. Blue isn’t new (it’s actually always been my favorite color) but I am extra obsessed with it at the moment. So, want to know what each of these colors mean?
The color yellow stands for freshness, happiness, positivity, clarity, energy, and optimism. This is so interesting to me because these are the exact feelings I’ve been trying to channel lately and be in my life. It’s probably not by accident that I love this color so much right now.
Red is a very emotionally intense color. I remember being told when I was younger that is red is often used in locations where you need to focus, like a library, or also in a restaurant to boost your metabolism. I have always remembered that about the color red. Red also is associated with energy, war, strength, power, determination along with passion, desire and love. It is so crazy to me reading the meaning of these colors because they are so reflective of my life to date.
Lastly, the color of blue, which is both my favorite color right now and a constant color that I keep in my life. As we all know, blue is the color of the sky and the sea. Blue is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence and faith. Blue slows down the metabolism and produces a calming effect. This color and energy is something that I have always loved, craved and would seek even as a little kid.
My Favorite Items In These Colors In
My Summer Wardrobe
I love these yellow shoes that I’m wearing in the photos from Topshop. They are now sold out of the heels version but they have a flat version that I am even more obsessed with. This red picnic top from Revolve is so perfect for Summer. I love how they styled in casually with denim shorts and it’s something I could wear all the time. Lastly, the color blue. I recently bought this dress for a wedding and I am so excited to wear it. It is my obsession!
Isn’t it crazy to see how something that seems as small and mindless as a color choice can mean so much? I’m curious, what colors have you been attracted to this Summer? Do they represent where you are at in your life at this current moment? I am someone who really believes that things like this aren’t done on accident and we all choose things consciously or unconsciously for a reason. I at least know that my clothing color palette definitely matches where I am! Let me know what your thought are on this in the comments below and which color you are right now.
