Happy Friday, everyone!
I hope this blog post finds you all in good health despite the infection-ridden season! A few of our family have sadly been taken down with a cold/flu: NOT GOOD FOR SINGING! Especially with this holiday season being BOOKED with weekends of performances :-/ I have fortunately been blessed to have avoided it thus far, but prayers would be appreciated for speedy recovery/continuing health!
I adore a good pop of color in an outfit! Bringing out a hint of vibrance found in a print, or introducing a new hue altogether into an otherwise subdued ensemble really gets me inspired. I find this with any design in general. Monochromatic hues commanding the overall look, with bright reds or blues adding interest and excitement is one of my favorite forms of design!
You know, if you think about it, an outfit is a design too. The way the articles of clothing complement each other in color and shape, and work together to form the look is very much like the design of a pamphlet or website. In order for it to take on a good aesthetic, the various components must make each other look good, whether it be the colors, typefaces, images, etc.
The weather displayed in these photos is quite the reverse of what is happening outside our windows at the moment! It’s snowing cats and dogs outside, with ice lain down nice and solid. The perfect December weather if you ask me 🙂 I despise it when it gets into the 60’s and wet whenever it should be cold and snowy ;P I’m just crossing my fingers that the chilly white stuff sticks around at least for the holidays, as these past few Christmases have been beautiful, yes, but grey. bleh.
