I was shopping for home goods at one of my favorite stores last weekend. Somehow this little picture came home with me. I'd been wanting something for the now blank wall in my closet, and I thought this was just right. I didn't know how right it was.

When I hung it up, I stepped back to admire how nice it looked next to my blush tote. And the scarves in the bin. And the bins themselves. And all of the skirts. And the tops and dresses and...

This pretty, inexpensive little acrylic-surface watercolor managed to capture all of my favorite saturated midtones of pink, blue, and green, and lighter and some darker tones of those same colors. All of these I wear and love. And it is grounded by touches of yellow, gray, and cognac/brown.

I couldn't have found a better representation of my color palette if I'd tried. It doesn't include the burgundy and black that goes into my wardrobe in cool weather, but those are not favorites the way the other colors are. It's hard to find winter-weight clothing in light greens and blues, or saturated pinks.
