I've learned that I'm easily swayed by subliminal messaging, apparently. I mean, really, while I'm not such a fan of this particular shade of green that I'll redecorate my house and live in a jungle of draperies and pillows, I find myself oddly comforted by greens, in general, these past several weeks. Not just comforted, but inexplicably drawn to them.
Perhaps there's something to this whole color of the year thing, after all.
Or is there?
Am I attracted to greens because I've read somewhere, on some site, some blog, some fashion magazine, that GREENERY would be the runway color of the year?
Or am I attracted to green because it's really just quite fabulous? I'm going with fabulous.
And ultimately, does it really matter?
I'm okay with the idea that perhaps I'm more swayed by popular opinion than I think, because it's actually helped me embrace my love for this color. I have bright, warm reds and yellows painted in my house. But green? Nah. Never really gave it much thought. Yet, these days, it's all I'm thinking about it, and I love it!
But you know what? It's fine. It's not just fine. The expected and popular has merit and worth and sometimes we don't always have to be the trend-setter ourselves because, let's face it, I imagine that's exhausting! I'm happy to accept that I drank the Pantone kool-aid and I'm owning it! I'll ride these coat-tails for as long as I can this year, I think.
And really now, we can still be fabulous with the same color everyone else is sporting. Because it's all in how you wear it! I plan on going big, going bold, and falling into the graceful, natural grip of GREENERY.
Who's with me?
And also, who hates this color? Ha! I know it can't be that popular!
