A Shot of Orange


Once upon a time, I declared orange to be the ugliest color of them all. Oh, how mistaken I was! Lately, I've developed a bit of a crush on this misfit in all its hues. From rust:


to tangerine:


In doses large:


and small:


It's gorgeous as an accessory:


and punches up my favorite wardrobe staples:


Maybe someday, I'll even become brave enough to tolerate it in the home. I like it paired with soothing whites and grays:


or in little accents, like boxes and books:



rugs and artwork:


But perhaps my favorite source is outdoors, where it pairs so nicely with natural woods and greenery:


While I've learned to admire orange from afar, I think for the moment my adoration will stay confined to the tangelos on my citrus tree. And perhaps that orange belt... :)

I have this great pair of orange globe earrings that I throw on occasionally with navy and white. It's very "kicky". But I can't decide if I look awesome or like a Florida Gators fan. All your orange photos float my boat!

The orange looks so great in the photos but it never looks great in my home or on me. Of course you would look fab in every outfit in the above photos.
