According to our calendars, Fall has arrived. According to our forecast...not so much. We're still in the 80s in Baltimore and showing no signs of cooling off.  I took advantage of our extended Summer temperatures and wore this off the shoulder, ruffled dress. This roomy dress gets an A for comfort and an A+ for drama. I mean, do you see these layered ruffles? Love! I'm also loving this color.

I don't have a lot of red in my closet, but I always feel great when I'm wearing it. Not  many colors rival red when it comes to attention grabbing. Red is known as a high energy color symbolizing power, strength, and sometimes danger. It's interesting how colors can represent who we are. What color do you wear most often? I'm exploring commonly worn colors and what they mean below, so keep scrolling! 


Lets start with black, the most mysterious color we can wear. The great thing about black is its flexibility. Whether your destination is a party, a funeral, a mall, or a date, you can go there in black.
