Fall Color Crush : Deep Teal


I mean I don’t just “like it,” or even “like it like it.” I luuuhvv it with all my heart.

I honestly, can’t even put my finger on exactly what it is I love.  I hate the cold. Everything is dying and rotting. I can’t stand mums. My yard FILLS with nasty walnuts.

But the jewel tones, and spices, and riding boots, and flannel; Halloween, and fall break (I work at a college) my birthday, Thanksgiving…

These are a few of my favorite things.

Oh and did I mention – Deep Teal?

Saturated. Rich. Intensely Deep Teal.

Like…don’t tell my husband about dark teal, because he may get jealous…It. Is. This. Bad.

Literally…I can’t even, though.

I honestly don’t know what my deal is (seriously) but I am crushing pretty hard on that deep intense teal color that I am seeing all over the place. Maybe it’s just my mind picking it out because I think about it all the time.

Y’all, I want to drape my entire life in this color.  I want it in my house, on my nails, in my closet, in my jewelry box– I want this color errywurr.

If this color were a person….oh man. Lord, help me.

Last year I bought this actual rug for my house, and it’s not that fancy (It’s from WalMart), but I stare at it constantly, wishing my life was that…uggh…teal!


It’s just one of those colors that looks good with everything.  I mean it, guys, I’ve got a fever and the only prescription…is MORE TEAL!! (Christopher Walken Voice)
