From Tracie: Rainbow Day - Being Bold

Rainbow Day - Being Bold

I looked out of my window this morning and saw grey clouds. It made me think of the sparkly rainbow girl, and all of your comments. It seems that most of us were not bold rainbows as kids, but it is not too late to be bold now.

I decided we needed a rainbow day. I told Katarina to pick out whatever clothes made her feel really happy (even if they did not match), and I did the same.

Tracie Rainbow
These were the items I was drawn to when I looked in my closet this morning:
  • Bright yellow short trench coat. (It isn't even cold outside.)
  • Bright pink shirt.
  • Teal Scarf. (It is my favorite, and I made it.)
  • Comfortable jeans.
  • Plaid hat in teals and purples.
  • Makeup! I wore sparkles and the dark red lipstick that I hardly ever use. Katarina did it for me, which made it even more fun.
I did not find a tutu in my closet...but maybe next time!

Katarina Rainbow
Katarina is slightly more seasonally appropriate (minus the scarf), but equally as happy in her rainbow of colors.

Today, we are rainbows.
Bold and unafraid.
Breathing in life, and living out fun.

  3. How fun! My kids have to wear uniforms to school, so I try to let them dress however they want on weekends. You guys look great!

    1. Uniforms are great for making school day preparation go faster, but I imagine that it would get boring wearing the same thing every day. It is great that you give them freedom on the weekends to have fun with their clothes.

  5. Just beautiful. My three-year-old chooses her own clothing a lot and usually pulls together some rainbow zany look. I love it! This brightens an otherwise grey day.

  16. Oh, I absolutely LOVE this!
    I've begun to embrace color in my old age (especially yellow, I love yellow so much), I need to take a cue from you and be a rainbow once in a while. :)
