Do you find yourself wearing the same colours most of the time? When you go shopping do you often choose the same colour palette?
There are times when I try to resist the temptation but it seems as though I'm locked in. Years ago I wore mainly dark colours and my dad and a former school teacher of mine (who also became my colleague), kept insisting that I put some colour in my life. Thankfully I listened.
Approximately two years later I overheard the former school principal where I taught Art/Craft, suggesting to another teacher that she should come to me if she needed advice on colour. Yes thankfully I listened.
I'm not gonna get into the technicalities of colour theory ( that can be googled ) but what I'll mention is how much colour can have an impact on one's mood.
After my first Canadian winter experience I have surrounded myself with colour and that really helps during those long dark cold days.
So yes I may buy my favorite colours( green, teal, turquoise, orange) when I go shopping I'm not afraid to deviate a bit at times.
