thoughts on orange

DSC_6824Orange is one of those colors that I just don’t wear very often. I think it’s due to a combination of two things: 1) I’m convinced it would look terrible on me, and 2) I’m concerned that I’ll end up looking like a jack-o-lantern. So when I found this blazer in a lovely shade of orange-y red (or perhaps reddish orange?), I thought it might be a nice way to compromise and add something orange-ish to my wardrobe.

I think I like the end result of this outfit–I could get into this orange thing. How would you wear the color orange?

  1. I think this outfit is super cute! I share your fears about wearing orange. I find I wear it more in the summer and pair it with navy and tan to tone it down.
