Fat Tuesday

"Fat Tuesday" is the literal translation of "Mardi Gras". The time period of Mardi Gras varies from city to city, but some traditions consider Mardi Gras as the period from the Epiphany to Ash Wednesday. Cities famous for their Mardi Gras celebrations are New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The colors associated with this celebration include purple, green and gold.

I decided to pay homage to the celebration today by incorporating all three into my wardrobe.
