Signature Color

Posted on: August 4, 2016

I’ve quite often read about people who have a signature color in their 

style and have thought 

“There are too many colors to love, not for me? ” 

I’ve recently found mad love for a sweater and the more I thought 

about it the more I wonder if this just might become my signature color…


This all began brewing a few weeks back when I wore this outfit and received 

quite a few compliments .  

I had bought this sweater in 2014 when Pantone called “Radiant Orchid ” 

The color of the year, but I didn’t wear it much….

Radiant Orchid, 31 Purse, Over 40 fashion:

Then last September, a dear friend gifted me this 31 purse for 

my 50th birthday, and mad love for the color started forming….

Over 40 style, IsaacMizrahilive leather jacket, floral top:

I love the bright pop of color with the nod to the color in 

my print blouse….

Black & White Ouftif, Over 40 Fashion, leather leggings. .:

And another pop of color with a black and white outfit…

one dress 4 ways, Over 40 fashion blogger:

And don’t even get me started on how much I loved this look

with the brown, bookending it with my scarf…. 

Olive Pants, floral Top, Over 40 fashion, Spring Outfit, purple shoes:

How about a more subtle way to incorporate the fuchsia,

by just a touch of it in a pattern?

Then I noticed that I had other pieces that were in that shade,

beginning with this thrifted poncho……

Patterened Pants and Bright top,with white acesssories for Summer: :  over 40 fashion blogger:

a basic tank…

Summer in White Jeans:  Over 40 fashon blogger:

A sleeveless summer tunic

Maxi Dress, Love...Women Over 40 fashion blogger:

My fun loving maxi dress…


A wonderful summer shrug…

Fuscia Pants, Purple leather jacket, Floral top, Over 40 Fashion:

I even added pants in this color for Spring….

I think this is just one of those funny moments when life comes full circle…

After all, I had a guy in high school call me Pinky because he swore I 

wore shades of it every day…. He could pick out a spot in a print of purple 

and still insist it fit the nickname, he didn’t stop there he included my love 

for burgundy as well….

So my dear Readers do you have a color that seems to stand out in your wardrobe as one

you have throughout different categories such as shoes, purses , jewelry, tops, pants, toppers? 

Leave a comment, Chime in ?  


I am grateful that my rabbit is recovering nicely from her surgery and back to her cuddly spunky self. 

I am grateful that my children all spent a week together in my son’s Richmond apartment nursing the bunny back to health and making fun memories together.  

I am so grateful that my children love each other and enjoy spending time together.  

I am grateful that after a week of no kids, that my daughter and youngest come home today. 

I am grateful for time with my niece alone this past week…

I am grateful for cooking adventures with my niece, I tried Spaghetti squash for the first time!  

I am grateful for exercise and the empowering feeling of mastering control over this weight gain.  

I am grateful for the anticipation of the cruise and how much it has energized my exercise routine.

It’s funny how when you really start analyzing your closet—the things you can pick out, right?
I absolutely love this color—but really I’m like you in so many ways! I really, really love them all! Of course, I might say yellow is my fave right now, but that doesn’t mean it’s my signature!!
ps…when is that cruise? I bet you are getting so excited!!

I think in winter I have a strong affinity for green , so of course I can’t just ever pick one… My cruise is September 24th. Yes, I am excited and counting down the days, but grateful I have a month and a half to work on this weight loss…

Great signature colour for you my beautiful friend! LOVE this post and how fuchsia is in every outfit, though every outfit is different and unique!

I don’t have a signature colour (haven’t heard this term before–I learn through blogging) I’ll check my wardrobe and let you know if I have one. Dusty pink comes to mind because I love it and have quite a few things in that colour, wonder if I have enough to follow suit and do a post like yours. 🙂

Enjoy your cruise!


YES, the beauty of blogging is how much we learn . Glad you found it interesting and something you can apply to yourself!
