I follow a lot of blogs, but one of the most colorful ones (literally) is the Lilly Pulitzer blog. A lot of the posts revolve around store openings here or there or travel guides to magnificent warm places (sigh…), but my favorite regular features on The Juice Stand are the “Print Worth Celebrating” posts. They’re so bright and beautiful and feature what Lilly is known for best: her prints! I have a thing about color… I love buying magazines not really for the stories, but for all of the wonderful colors (it must be related to the same part of my brain that enjoys reading blogs…). Colors elicit an emotional response from me; something is either “happy,” “colorful,” and “bright” or “sad,” dark,” and “dismal.” This time of year in particular I am super sensitive to colors and all the emotions that come with them. That’s why I love to set my computer desktop background to these delicious Lilly prints. They’re spunky and creative and help me stay cheerful when I’m doing work and the sun is setting at 5pm.
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
