Out of the Notebook and into the blog: Robins Egg Blue

Robins Egg Blue

I'm always switching between favorite colors, usually I have multiple favorite colors at once. Often I'll ask someone what they're favorite color is and they'll say something like "navy blue" and I'll say, oh! Me to! And almost immediately as I say it I remember my favorite colors are robin blue, yellow, turquoise and white, (not saying that white is technically a color, but...), with a hint of blush pink. I also love certain shades of purple, darker the purple the better - or in clothing a twinkly purple.

Is it so bad to love all colors? I tend to lean towards sunny regeneracy colors though, the ones that you'll see in the prettiest vintage dresses from the 1890's - 1900's.

A simple color can evoke such emotion and feelings, it can make you feel beautiful, light and airy, it can take you back to a different time period, it can also have the opposite effect, making you feel dark and dreary.
