For Fun, Wear the Happy Colors!

Vintage Chicos Jacket
Black Blouse: Kohls
Short Pants: Stein Mart
Michael Kors Platforms:
Garment Exchange
Necklace: Chicos

Since this is still the middle of San Antonio’s Fiesta Celebration, I decided to research what colors are best for happy times!! My research resulted in the following colors and how they make the wearer feel:

Green makes one feel happy, clean and fresh

Orange makes one feel friendly

Pink makes one feel happy and youthful

Red makes one feel excited, impulsive, and want to eat. Since the food during Fiesta is fabulous, event coordinators probably prefer everyone wear red. Just thinking of those funnel cakes makes me want to reach for another shirt!

The jacket says ENERGY in red...That's Right!

I was surprised to discover that if you wear yellow too long, you will become agitated. Interesting. My conclusions? For a celebration, wear green, orange, pink, or red. Those are your best options!

It has been fun to dress with color in mind this week just to celebrate Fiesta. Gigi has gone Fiesta-forward and really put me to shame!! I think I actually need to be wearing a lot more blue. Blue makes the wearer feel relaxed, calm, secure, and suppresses appetites and lowers blood pressure!!

This outfit wins for my favorite
FIESTA Look of the week!!

Gigi is extremely happy in PINK!

A perfect FIESTA necklace!!


  1. Chico's jacket, fiesta outfit and pink outfit. Some beautiful clothes there.

  2. I love the colorful jacket! I have a similar jacket full of color (lots of teal) that I am waiting to wear (a little too cool here yet). Gigi's black & pink outfit is similar to what I wear.....matching with a pop of color. You both look great!!!!

  3. I came across your blog from Brett's Blogger Darling of the Day. I loved your answers almost as much as I love this colourful ensemble! It's interesting to know that certain colours can affect our moods in different ways!

  4. Fabulous celebration of color! You and Gigi are ideal Fiesta reflections. I love hearing about celebrations that take place in different parts of the country. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love all this colour! I am wearing lots of colour today too (big surprise, har har). Funny, I almost never wear blue, but wear tons of yellow.

  6. That colorful jacket seems perfect for a fiesta. I like happy colors!

  7. This is the funnest looking jacket EVER Pam!!! Love it:)

  8. Love all the pretty Fiesta clothes! I love color, print and florals! Can't get enough of them!

  13. gah! your jacket is fabulous! and super colorful to boot...oh, i love it swo.

  14. Funkadelic!! I love your top Pam, its totally fun!! you seem so fun and vibrant, I love it!! xoxo J

  15. Pam, i love the print on your jacket! And, I think it is time I stopped wearing yellow...before I grow agitated.

  16. isn't it interesting the effect colors have on us?? it was fun to learn why blues/greens were used in doctors' offices, and why red is used in chinese restaurants, lol! this jacket sure incorporates all of the colors.
