21 Jul Orange
Joy + Creativity
Orange is such a vibrant colour that conjures up so many emotions and feelings. Predominantly associated with joy, warmth, heat, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, balance, sexuality, freedom, expression, and fascination, it is no wonder that this colour features in my closet more than once. Deciding to shoot this look in this colourful alleyway was a no-brainer. The fusion of colours in one shot that captured the essence of what the colour means and I couldn’t have picked a better location. The bold colours are balanced out by the denim and simple make-up look and this was on purpose for the soul fact of wanting all the colours to pop.
The colour is a combination of red – energy and yellow – happiness. As I have mentioned before, colour makes me happy and the more I wear of it in the summer, the better I can express myself and my emotional state of mind. I use colour as an expression of who I am. I love to wear orange in the summer time, but when fall comes along, the colour takes on a different meaning – think all things pumpkin related and delicious.
Strength and Endurance
While orange denotes happiness and excitement, it is also a colour that is associated with helping people bounce back during periods of hardships. It is said to be optimistic and uplifting and can rejuvenate the spirit. It helps one endure the difficult moments in life, and make it through to the other side.
If you don’t have orange in your closet, I suggest that you go pick up an orange shirt or scarf or both because we all need a little piece of something that can help when we least expect it.... N. xo
