Inspiration – Heidi Klum
Got a cold snap in Florida finally! It seemed that it might be summer here forever and considering how warm my body keeps itself these days – it wasn’t an awesome prospect. It was nice and chilly this weekend and I met up with my parents on Sunday to walk around a little art festival and eat gyros & boiled peanuts.
Side note – I was just trying to figure out what to put as the color of this jacket and I sat here for like two minutes blanking. Sometimes I feel like a color dummy when I’m putting together these posts. I struggle with too many choices of names for three colors ranges in particular – deep reds, teal-y blues & browns. For reds I feel like I could get lost in the naming of the various shades of deep red, burgundy, maroon, wine, plum, berry, magenta… or similarly for things in brown, I run though tan, caramel, cognac, camel, beige and on and on.
I could get specific and spend time correctly identifying the exact correct name of each shade but what I want to use (and I think would be most useful) is as simple a naming convention as I possibly can without being a total idiot and calling something a color it is absolutely not. The less variation in color terms that I use means that searching & sorting of posts are easier. The more I use the same convention the more like things will appear with like. I don’t want to fall down the rabbit hole of using every possible exact color name. So most of the time I just sorta wing it. Which is how this jacket got called… drumroll… BROWN leather jacket. So original.
