You Know I Dream in Color

One of my favorite things to do, that has nothing to do with my title or outfit, is to drive with the windows down and the heater on full blast with some great music. It is an amazing feeling, to have the fresh air in your face and the heat from your heater keeping you warm. Try it 🙂 I would like to add, using the heater doesn’t waste gas.

new cardigan – Forever 21, tank – Wet Seal, shorts – Forever 21, shoes – Aldo, bracelet – Mom, purse – Aldo, necklace – Forever 21

I love color. I know I don’t always wear a lot of color, and if anything, one color at a time, but when it comes to art, my paintings are rich with color. Portraits drawn in pencil and charcoal, not so much (speaking of which I have some portraits in the works and will show you them soon!). I took an animation class a few years ago, just to dabble in the concept of changing my college major of Advertising to Illustration, and alas, that was the end of that. We weren’t allowed to use ANY color for 4.5 months, (it was semester system) and I just about died. This is supposedly how beginners practice animation, but that on top of drawing the same thing over and over and over, no way Jose, not for me! 

I was drawn to this cardigan because of the beautiful greenish turquoise. Just stunning, even under the fluorescent lights of the Forever 21 store. The shorts are a bit big, as I bought them back when I weighed 10 lbs more, but I love the buttons and bow detailing 🙂

    Hey Jess, thank you for commenting on my blog about the MMU but for some reason, the comment's not there now! LOL But anyways, I think it's good for oily skin too if you apply primer and finishing powder. You can always drop by a MN studio to do a makeover first.& another vote for your dad's trip as I really hope he can go too! ;)
