Purple, the it color still?

So what is your favorite color this season? Purple is still the “it” color these days. I have found some shades of purple that I am loving right now, like this beautiful scarf from Nenee.

Deep purple shades like this scarf scream urban chic. I would gladly replace my black clothes this season for this lovely color! Even bright purples can look fabulous. The shirt below looks amazing with the addition of gray to balance this particular shade of purple.

My favorite color this season is olive! Why? Olive can be funky, urban, elegant, glamorous, natural, hip…you get the point. Here are some of my favorites! This delicious hat makes me want to play in the snow all day! Too bad it doesn’t come in my size (children only!)

While the hat is funky and cute olive, the knit scarf below can be hip or fabulous!

Christmas tradition I make every year

During my annual Christmas tradition of making an ornament for every person in my family, I decided to make a couple of extra and sell them on Esty. This year I choose a snowman (maybe they are snow women, as they are very dainty) theme, soft colors, and pleasing to the eye. I think I am going to add a Santa and a reindeer to this collection, we’ll see how far I get in this process. Speaking of which, I have included some photographs of the creation process and some of the final snowmen/women ornaments.

I am going to sell these + some others, which are awaiting a photograph, on my Etsy shop which can be located by going here flipflopfloat.etsy.com. Each snowman is designed different, no two snowmen are alike! Anyway, this project should release some pent up cold weather energy I’ve been having lately. Maybe I just need to get out and play in the snow.
