Color My World

by Kay~Kacey on 10/7/2008

Color has always been an important part of my world. The brilliant colors. Subdued colors. The shades and hues and variety. I reach for certain colored clothes when I want to be cheered up. Other subdued colors, like my favorite gray sweatshirt, sit there waiting for me when I want to just sit back and chill out. (warmly 😉 )

When I was growing up my favorite color was yellow. Probably because my mom’s favorite color was yellow, so she dressed me in lots of yellow. It wasn’t until I went off to college that I realized I could choose my own favorite color… 🙄 Not that my mom was still dressing me in high school, you know. I mean, she still bought me lots of yellow clothes, but I did pick out my own clothes. Mostly. Well, she gifted me a lot of yellow clothes and we shared clothes a lot. My mom has awesome taste in clothing. I’ll move on to my next favorite color…

Then I was all about red. Red sweaters. Red scarfs. Red shoes. Red cars. Even a brief stint of red hair… 😆 Red. Red. Red.

Then in the last 8 years or so it slowly became all about the Pink.

I love pink. Bright, brilliant, glorious pink.

It’s a happy color. Shocking pink, love that the most.

I feel a bit fickle. I mean, most people just pick a favorite color and keep it don’t they? Well, I’m obviously not very loyal to my colors… Please don’t think less of me… 😉

How about you? Do you have a favorite color? Has it changed over the years, or is your favorite color from childhood still your favorite color now?

Blue – I’ve always loved this color from childhood to now. I’ve changed the variation of blues with navy or royal being my favorie but getting use to teal or aqua.

Love shocking pink, too, and have polish the same color! But my fave, fave color is Paris green, which is kinda lime green really. Anis green as well. And then that kind of aqua they call tile blue. And orange. And red!! Just about every color, really, except navy–especially when it’s paired with yellow. Yellow alone, fine, but that combination, I just hate!

From childhood into adult, purple was my favorite.
In the last few years, orange has taken it’s place. Still like purple, but orang is my favorite. It’s so cheerful.

redheads and pink do not mix….but I do like it ..

blue and greens for me…but you are so right colors really are important ~change is too you are not fickle

My fave color switched a bit as a kid. But, for a while it’s been yellow. Yellow makes me happy. 🙂 :rofl:

I, too, love yellow and pink, but I tend to wear a lot of monochromatic colors. I swear by Revlon’s Pink Velvet shade of lipstick for day and Lilac Champagne if I want to bolder look at night.

Suzanne October 7, 2008 at 7:59 am

Love pink, too, but sage and wine are really my favorite colors now and for awhile!

I love your pink toes!

And soft blue is my favorite…it reminds me of clear skies and sparkling seas.

I actually like white. I just love the clean look of it. I love it in shirts and on my walls. Most people think it is boring, but it has always been one of my favorite colors! Drove me crazy that you could rarely use the white crayon!!

But I also love red.

Mental P Mama October 7, 2008 at 10:02 am

My favorite is green. By the way, you have the cutest little baby tootsies! :beer:

White has always been my crisp standby but my accent colors have changed over the years. I love sage green on my walls and even for clothes. Up until last year I though pink shouldn’t be worn by anyone over the age of 5… THEN… I found this awesome pink jacket and it was all downhill from there. 😉

This year, I’m all about brown.

Tori Lennox October 7, 2008 at 11:32 am

I’m all about the pink, too. Well, I like purple/lavenders too, but pink is the big favorite.

Tug October 7, 2008 at 12:27 pm

My favorite colors have pretty much mirrored yours, but I’ve moved from pink to some color of green that I don’t know what it is right now…with blue accents.

I need to brighten back up. :cool2:

I couldn’t possibly choose a favorite. Red (obviously), blue, turquoise — I love to wear turquoise. But I really like lots of colors. There are a few that I don’t like — peach, rose… LOVE your shocking pink toes, though. 🙂

First, let me say your flower photo is breathtaking! Second, I love your pink toes 🙂

My favorite color for as long as i can remember is green. It reminds me of the rebirth of spring, the woodsy scent of evergreens, and all things fresh.

That SuperGuy is such, well, a GUY! Perfect choices, and if I asked, probably along the lines of what GB would say.

Me? As I grow older, though I love all color, I find myself leaning toward pink…HOT pink..magenta…purple…maybe it really is hormonal…WHATever!!!

Jakki October 7, 2008 at 10:39 pm

Urgh…I’m terribly boring. My favorite colors have always been white, black and brown.

hellokittiemama October 7, 2008 at 10:56 pm

My fav color has changed over the years too.

My son’s however has always been green – I’ve never known a child to love a color as much as he loves green.

MAYBELLINE October 7, 2008 at 11:25 pm

Just can’t pick a favorite. 😕

mp October 8, 2008 at 1:34 pm

brown and pink are big favorites now.. It used to be purple and pink. I love red though….and green. I love SO many colors.

Sandra Foyt October 9, 2008 at 3:45 pm

I am loyal to the blues. Even now, when I get together with my BFF we still argue about which is better – blue or green. When we shared an apartment post-college we ended using both for our decor!
