There are two types of people in this world.
People who love rainbow sprinkles. Who think 50 cents extra is a small price to pay think for the earthly form of happy unicorn tears. Yes, we think sprinkles are unicorn tears, don’t burst our bubble! Rainbow sprinkles instantly make us smile.
Then there are those who think rainbow sprinkles are stupid, an utter waste of money, and they don’t even taste good!
It should come as no surprise, I’m a rainbow sprinkles fan. I once jumped in a pool of rainbow sprinkles, remember?
Let’s be honest, I’m still that kid whose temper tantrum, explosion of tears, could be dissipated by the arrival of ice cream. Like a rainbow poking throw the clouds on a stormy day, tiny pieces of multi-colored, crappy sugar brighten my day.
It’s silly I know but for some reason it works. Thus I’m constantly on the look out for ways to achieve what I’ll call the Rainbow Sprinkles Effect without actually getting ice cream.
The Rainbow Sprinkles Effect
My newest discovery came from the racks of Goodwill. There, amongst a sea of beige sweaters and faded black wool, I stumbled across the clothing version of rainbow sprinkles. I grinned.
A rainbow sequin top originally from Top Shop. It was full Rainbow Sprinkles Effect. Who could be depressed wearing this shirt? Sure, it was a lot of shirt…sure it would be intimidating to wear….but I knew I’d have to try.
Rainbow Sparkles Effect. None of the calories but all of the joy of the Rainbow Sprinkles Effect!
I only want to wear it on sunny days so I can literally sparkle in the sunshine. It’s definitely a look that polarizes the two types of people I mentioned at the beginning of this post. There are two types of people and they either say, “I love your top!” or “That’s an…interesting shirt.”
Which type are you?
I went all the way and paired my rainbow sparkles with my TOMS blue suede shoes. Remember when I used to be a wallflower? Impossible in this outfit! These TOMS are the most comfortable wedges I’ve ever worn and the only footwear I enthusiastically recommend to anyone who wears heels. I’ve run 5 blocks in these 3 inch wedges and been shockingly comfortable- that’s a must-have trait for a chronically late New Yorker who’s constantly running all over town. I Citibike in them too! They come in a million different colors if blue suede is too Elvis for you.
Do you have an outfit that just makes you happy wearing it?
THAT MAKES YOU SMILE LIKE YOU’RE EATING ICE CREAM?
