POW – That’s Color!

When I think of color, I think of the words “BAM” and “POW”! Can you tell that I have a 7YO boy under my roof? It’s all about super heroes, transformers, and every other character that has magic and power.

 But, in all seriousness, color IS powerful. It creates a confidence, it’s eye-catching, and can ‘stop traffic’! Wouldn’t you want to stop traffic? Well, in a good way!

 Color is a great way to break out of ‘the norm’. We, especially women, have a tendency to fall into the world of neutrals, because it’s safe. It’s slimming and safe! (Yes, I wouldn’t have even had to say the word ‘safe’, because, as women, we only hear the word ‘slimming’.) There is nothing wrong with the neutral world – it’s a basic canvas of where we can infuse color.

 If you are ‘new’ to color, this is a perfect time of year to try it, because color is EVERYWHERE. This spring season has exploded with varying shades of color from pretty pastels to the neon shades of the 80’s. So, pick your favorite shades and give it a try!

 Just keep these few things in mind:

  •  Don’t go head to toe in color, or more, specific ONE color. You can get away with varying shades of one color that compliments. 
  • You can go ‘all color’ by color blocking your outfit. Just make sure not to use more than 3 colors in your color blocking combination.
  • Infuse color into your outfit/wardrobe where you are comfortable. Maybe, a dress in a bright color is too much. You could try a blouse, scarf, or a fabulous pair of shoes as a way to ease into the color world.
  • Make a statement with color. Don’t be afraid to pick your brightest and boldest shade of your favorite color. Be confident and proud.
  • Avoid being too ‘matchy-matchy’ with your accessories and your outfit. It’s okay to pull in the neutrals or balance one color with a complimentary color.
  • Have fun! Color is a confidence builder. It is guaranteed to put a little extra spring in your step when you look in the mirror and even make that smile a little bit bigger.

 I have found myself totally addicted to the color trend this season! I have quite a collection of colored denim from spring and that has translated into various colored shorts for summer.

 Tis’ the season for color! Enjoy! 

Yummy…..Love Mint!

You hear the word ‘mint’ – you may think of a flavor, freshening your breath, or a piece of gum. But, the ‘Mint’ I’M talking about is an adorable new boutique that opened in Jenks, OK. Yes, in Jenks, OK – the antique capitol. There amidst treasures of the past sits a hip, urban, and trendy boutique. 

Mint Boutique Business Card

Mint Boutique

Two sisters have started this business. They were driving down main street, Jenks, over the Christmas holiday, saw the space, and thought, “why not?” And, so it began, with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears – they opened their first store, with hopes of already opening more in the future. 

Full of Color

The boutique is following, in line, with this season’s trend – COLOR! Lots of options to put together the perfect summer wardrobe. It is definitely an edgier, trendy vibe that targets a younger customer and/or the very hip fashionista. But, with that, comes a very reasonable price tag, which is favored, when trying to stay with the latest and greatest trend of the moment.

It’s an adorable store that will soon be on your ‘must stop’ shop list. New merchandise arrives weekly and they follow the ‘when it’s gone, it’s gone’ motto, as there are no reorders on existing merchandise. 

A perfect opportunity to check out Mint Boutique will be during the Jenks Freedom Fest on July 4th. Mint will be having their own party amidst the other festivities with yummy treats, special sales, and a drawing for a gift card too. 

Go check it out…this boutique is sure to unleash a flavor for fashion…..
