Getting Old, Being Bold

I never cared much for pastels. As pretty and girly as they are - frankly I am too loud a person for such soft colors.

I knew it in 1987 at my aunt's Easter Party.

My cousin sent me this photo today and when I saw it, I was struck with the familiarity of me in that bright color surrounded by pretty ladies in pastels.

I may be loud but I am nothing if not consistent. Holla!

I love that you are wearing the same shade of turquoise in both pics.

Hahaha! Love it. Frankly, pastels wash me out. I don't generally do them either. (I wore a dress the EXACT same color on our last cruise!)

Randall said...

Oh, I'm with you... no pastels for me. I'll take red any day!

That's not being loud! It's being bold, bright, vivacious -- clearly a representation of your personality!

I, am not a pastel girl. Not at all...
