inspiration : current color crushes

Hi y'all! Some of my favorite colors, yellow and pink, have been favorites for many years. Some, mint and coral, are favorites that have developed more recently in the last few years. But then, there are some new favorite colors that just kind of sneak up on me. I don't realize how much I love them until I've caught myself buying them over and over again. Does this ever happen to you?

My most recent discovery of my new color crushes comes as a real surprise. I've never been that big of a fan of cobalt blue, mostly because I don't like wearing blue tops with blue jeans. I feel like I'm walking around looking all smurfed out. But it started with seeing this hot, cobalt blue nail polish being worn on a reality tv show this summer, then I bought a sweater, then clothes for Joey and the kids, all in the same cobalt blue. 

And for the neon purple, I've always loved purple, but neon purple is a new shade that I'm really crushing on now. I first picked it up in a makeup bag set that I needed a new one of. Then some skinny jeans, then some nail polish. And now, before I realized what happened, I've discovered that my recent purchases are always leaning towards at least one of these two colors. Also... there's a fuschia/neon purple colored Escalade driving around Lubbock. I've seriously discussed with Joey that when we buy a new Tahoe for me (down the road) I want to paint it that color. He's not agreeing to that. Yet.
