The new 'me' is going for light-hearted and, casually contemporary. I'm losing the dark look and embracing the light. It certainly makes shopping an whole lot easier which makes me very lightheaded. lol
Through one of the members I also discovered a blog- The Vivienne Files. I spent Sunday evening going through the 'Starting From Scratch' tab. Here are two examples of a personal colour wheel. This totally appeals to me. I'm just about ready to commit to my basic neutrals and my accent colours. I was almost going to say navy and grey (no more black) when I realized I have very little navy but I have LOTS of green so it may be green and grey. Aqua (teal) is one colour and I'm thinking pink (cranberry) for the other. The 'other' light will be white/ecru/cream- depending. I did think of two capsules- one for summer and one for winter but remembered KISs just in time. LOL But those kahaki sections can still work when I go grey taupe and green based taupe so I can have those for summer. Then think of all the combos with lights to darks and prints that pull together two colours. I hate clothes shopping so this would focus me on MY colours. A jean skirt is a must, almost considered a neutral and I'd keep my black pencil skirt and LBD (little black dress).
Spring is my favourite season even though it can be quite cool and muddy here. But the idea of fresh air, pussy willows and green grass just make me happy! I am happy to put away all the stuff that has managed to accumulate from the previous seasons, spring clean and start all over again with lots of white and minimal clutter.
I'll be accessorizing things that best show off the charm of this old character lady. ha! you thought I meant me. I meant this old house! We have a showing for a prospective buyer this week and a contender for our own purchase/consideration. So I have not been making much art but I have been busy! Spring is shaping up to be very exciting and summer is looking to be busy! Bring on the daffies!
