Return to innocence in white

Honestly, I have no idea what color is the "IT" color this summer.  I think the whole color wheel is in. If you play darts, chances of you hitting it is 99% even if blind-folded.  I feel like I just transported myself back to elementary school mentally by talking about my favorite color.   "What is your favorite color?" is such a basic question when you are curious enough to ask, but it hasn't been the easiest question for me to answer.  Sometimes I'm afraid my hesitation makes the person asking feel like I'm so complicated or just a scattered brain!  It has been 20+ years, and my answer hasn't changed, "I like all colors, but if you make me pick one...", it would be the color that this entire post is dedicated to.

A heavenly combo: shear, feathery fringe, shiny,  and pure-white

Money can buy you a designer white wedding gown, but no money can buy a true and pure heart. Isn't that why we spent so much time worrying about attracting the wrong person with what we wear and how we behave?

One day, I will feel like a princess in a white wedding gown.  Hopefully in one as pretty as Kate's or Princess Charlene's.  The color white is one that I adore the most because it's so light, fresh, pure, and innocent.  A white wedding dress means a brand new life, like the next blank page in my half-filled notebook that is waiting for me to fill it with memories of happy times to come.  When I want to  relive my innocent days, I turn to my favorite white t-shirts and sneakers, or dress minimalistic for simplicity.

To make a long story short--if i could use the color white to describe myself: " I might look fragile but I got strong bones!"
