When Your Colors Speak

What are you saying when you show up to the world? Rather, what are the colors you are wearing telling others about you?

Colors have a way of setting the mood and can also reflect how you are currently feeling. When you think about your favorite color, consider WHY it’s your favorite. It has to make you feel some type of way, right?
