My Latest Colorful Finds

Color is a part of my being, and it will stay with me till I die.  I am just amazed at how every thing you wear doesn’t have to be neutral or muted – there’s a color for it!  Two recent things I purchased to add to my bright palate are a pair of colorful sneakers and rainbow lenses.  Let’s check them out:

I took a look at my old sneakers and said to myself, “I need to get more colorful ones that are a reflection of me.”  I was definitely going to hold out until I found the right style and colors, and it wasn’t until I randomly walked into a Big 5 Sporting Goods store that I discovered my dream shoe, the Nike Alvord 10. It was funny because I initially went in there with my boyfriend to help him on his never-ending quest to find the perfect shoes and then I started to look at the options for women.  I was drawn to all the shoes that had pink, turquoise and/or yellow in them, and I picked up the Nike Alvord 10 in a turquoise color with orange on it.  I think I said out loud I need more color on this shoe and the employee that was nearby mentioned they did have another style I could look at.  Out came this beautiful pair of shoes with all my favorite colors and I was sold!  Sometimes you don’t know what you’re holding out for until you see it, and that was my moment.  These Nike Alvord’s were made for me and there was no hesitation to buy them!  I mean, just look at all the vibrant hues on this shoe!  I will definitely wear these forever and everywhere – I don’t think there will be another shoe that can top this!

Rainbow Lenses

Another thing I wanted to colorize is my sunglasses.  I realized that I should definitely have some rainbow sunnies, so I first saw that I could buy frames I like and replace them with rainbow lenses from Oliver Peoples (another random walk-in). It took a few months to find sunglasses I really like (sorry no Ray-Bans), and then I thought that maybe I don’t want to change out the lenses for $85, I actually like them as is.  Another random stroll into Old Navy a few weeks ago and the perfect rainbow sunglasses were found! Just $15, as soon as I put them on I knew they were the one!

It appears the coolest things I discover are usually when I’m not expecting it, which is awesome.  The question is, what is there left to color on me?  To go all the way out, my hair would be the next thing.  It’s in the style picture above, but am I ready to rock hot pink and purple strands?  Not sure yet, but it’s something to think about.
