ADVICE STYLE

Rainbow stripes are trending bright

Hello, it’s me Bad to the Blonde. Out with the old sweaters…in with the bold sweaters. The search is still on for the pot o’ gold but I found the Led Zeppelin of 70s style, and had to cave in and add a rainbow stripe sweater to my winter wardrobe. I pull it out with skies are blue, for real. Whenever I am in need an attitude adjustment or need to make it through Monday – this seems to be the perfect way to get after it. I’m a firm believer in what you wear will effect how you feel. Surprisingly, I have never been of fan of the color-way – it’s like too much going on to wear at once – but it’s a really easy way to brighten any day. It’s quite a fun trend! No shadow will steal your brightness.

Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.

Sweater Weather

Sweater weather is everything but boring this season with rainbow stripes trending bright. A little bit of a rainbow; a whole lot of gold. From bell bottoms to fun fabrics – I love retro fashion trends and it’s my go-to style lately. Even though I’m an 80s baby and people still call me “young” at 32, dressing in different decades has a way of bringing me back into time – and I’m feeling it! Every girl remembers Rainbow Brite and the fictional character came about shortly before I was born in 1985. In the second generation, I think the Rainbow Brite Starlite Horse became more important. Oh, that colorful tail. I remember that horse more as a child than the actual girl. Starlite is Rainbow Brite’s main source of transportation, galloping on his magical rainbow and taking care of her like a good friend does. I often feel like that horse.

Take that magical rainbow straight into Spring. It will get you through those cold and unmotivated, perhaps gloomy days. It’s truly a fun, childish fashionable piece to have in your closet. Rainbow stripes will brighten even your darkest days or radiate your happiest. I just feel a little pep-in-my-step when I wear this – it also seems to make other people instantly happy.

Feelin’ like a kid again

I’ll never forget my “What Makes a Double Rainbow” science project and my Mama’s idea to set out a pot of Rolo’s (for gold). When everyone else did the pop bottle tornado project – we had real 4×6 photos to illustrate. I remember being quite proud – I thought we were quite creative. Every time I put on this rainbow stripe sweater outfit it brings me back to that trim-fold poster board project in elementary school. If your kid needs an idea, that’s a great one. Look it up! Everyone finds beauty and joy in the colors of a rainbow.
