nothing but blue skies from now on

It was a long, long winter, my UGGS seemed glued to my feet and the extra blankets
never left our bed.Just recently i noticed the plants on my desk turning towards the window to grab the beautifulbright SUNLIGHT!!! It's finally here!
Fashion has seasons as we know and my favorite is summer-the colors are fantastic-
bright and cheerful.

I am a huge turquoise fan and my collection is filled with turquoise so i am in heaven.
In the morning it is hard to choose which colorful way to go-today i am in a coral mood.
Color theory has always been a passion and it rules my choices-i have always 
been a believer in the science of color since my days at Parson's.
Here is a basic chart of a few color studies:
A relaxing color.  Blue lowers blood pressure, calms, gives a sense of security, and suppresses appetite. 
This is an organic, earthy color.  It can make you feel cozy. 

This is the easiest color for the eyes to focus on for long periods of time.  It soothes pain and is associated with optimism. May make one feel happy, clean, fresh.          

This color is friendly, relaxing and ambitious.           

This is a youthful, feminine color.  Pink is also a soft, sensitive color. This is basically a "happy" color.           

This color is often associated with royalty.  It is also a contemporary color. Purple has a list of associated feelings, from feeling mournful to creative.           

This color raises the blood pressure, stimulates appetite and conversation and is often associated with excitement, action, impulse.
White: White is often associated with purity, cleanliness. Also associated with nothingness, and in some cultures death and/or mourning. Can make one feel clean/sterile.

Yellow: This color is an eye irritant and a highly emotional color.  After long periods of time, yellow invokes feelings of anger and hostility.  However, yellow, in small doses, is a friendly, happy color.
Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see
Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my how they fly
Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on
