I used to often say that January was the brown dress in the back of your closet month. That it represented this brownest, most boringest clothing item you owned because it was hands-down the most boringest month of the year. I’m pretty sure I even wrote about that when used to write a fashion column (Because, apparently, you can use words like boringest in fashion columns.) (And Ha! I used to write a fashion column. Super Zoe can you even beeelieve that?!) back in the day, before gum was invented.
But that was long before brown became the new black, and orange became the new brown, and pink became the new orange. So, really, when you think about it, by the laws of transverse property, the laws of boomerang trends, and the laws of the state, this clearly means that brown is the new pink. Which means, January is all about pink. And if you followed that, then you’re completely drunk. Cheers.
And cheers again. Because it’s 2007.
And just as fashion has changed a bit, I guess my mind has changed too. Because I no longer think January is Boring McBrown. I think it is fantastically pink. It’s new. It’s fresh. It’s clean. It’s basically like calling do-over in a game of Go Fish. You totally get to start over. If you want to. And in some ways, I think I do.
Like with my closet for instance. This is another post entirely, and so it will be. But it’s a work in the works. Oh and I’m taking up green tea as a coffee replacement. Or at least a partial replacement. And for sure I’ll be eating more oranges. And smiling more. Those aren’t resolutions, per se. They’re just things I’m thinking on and starting up again. Or starting over on. Or with. Or in. Or whatever. But the reality is, they’re my new things. They’re soooo 2007.
And so is pink. Because it seems there are a lot of new and fantastic pinks being born to some of my favorite pinks around here…like baby Lydia, baby Tate, and the anticipated (and sassy) baby Flossie and baby Smith. (Of course, baby Atticus and sweet new baby Finn are the exceptions, but seriously, someone has to date all these little girls!)
New babies (and before you get too excited mom, let’s be clear, there are no new baby announcements being made around here), new boots, new ideas, new goals, new possiblities. You have to admit, that’s totally pink. And that’s totally 2007.
Happy new year, people.
