My mom used to have a "color card" in her purse from the 1980's. From the time I was about 7, my mom let me know that because of we have light eyes and pale skin, we look better in "cool colors". Which means I need to stay away from "hot (fun) colors" like reds and pinks and browns. Telling a little girl she shouldn't wear pink? Real nice, Mom. (Juust kidding).
Since then, I've embraced this "cool color" family whole-heartedly. I decided to get some mint-chocolate ice cream to celebrate. Which melted REAL fast. But I have to admit, it was stranglely refreshing... HAH!
This week is all about getting inspired by things that will cool you off. So grab a really drippy ice cream cone, sit on the gravel bricks by the water on Lakeshore, and watch the sun go down so that you can relish in a refreshing night out.
