“If you’re feeling blue, try painting yourself a different color.” -Hannah Cheatem (age 8)

During these dreary winter months, it is super easy to get in a clothing rut. Recently I’ve been inadvertently limiting myself to dark colors. Dark colors and lots of neutral, simple layers. While this is certainly a practical and appropriate way to dress right now, it never hurts to break the mold. As mentioned in my previous post, I am trying to push boundaries a bit more this year and be increasingly adventurous when it comes to clothing. Vibrance people…take a cue from Hannah, kid knows what’s up!

    I precisely wished to thank you very much once more. I’m not certain what I would’ve tried without those tips documented by you over such a subject. This has been a very distressing circumstance in my circumstances, but being able to view a new professional manner you dealt with the issue forced me to weep for delight. Now i’m grateful for this service and as well , pray you are aware of a great job your are undertaking teaching some other people using your web site. More than likely you have never met any of us.

    Love the advice – I spoke similarly on my blog recently about wanting to take fashion risks in 2013, step out of my comfort zone a little. I started by wearing a fedora, which is something I never thought I could pull off. :)
