Orange Crush

I bet if you went into your closet right now you’d probably find very few orange pieces of clothing, am I right?  That was certainly the case for me until our son chose a university, the University of Florida to be exact.  Now I’ve developed an orange crush.

On Sunday I wore this outfit to a family gathering to celebrate my nephew’s birthday.  These orange shorts were one of the first purchases I made after my son decided to attend UF.  I remember shopping with my friend at Loft and we saw the shorts on clearance.  Of course they were, no one wears orange unless it’s to show school spirit.  I grabbed them up and figured they’d be good to wear to a football game.  But I was wrong.

This OTS embroidered top I purchased earlier in the Spring.  I wore it here the last time. But I knew when I bought it that I’d be wearing it with my orange shorts this Summer. I love the way the outfit came together. Since I chose my long tassel white earrings I decided against a necklace. It felt like it might be too much and the embroidery on the top is so pretty and so trendy too! I am also wearing a new pair of shades that I am enjoying but for my family the jury is still out. Spending a lot on sunglasses is not something I normally do, these are $12. Maybe someday I’ll invest in a pricier pair but for now these fit my budget just fine!




I read once that orange is a universally flattering color, do you believe that? I suppose depending on the tone I do. In the Fall it seems there are lots of shades of orange but how about for Summer, do you own anything orange? So, orange, it’s not just for football games and team spirit, it’s a legit color. Orange you glad I said that? Hahahahaha, you know I had to slip an orange joke in here somewhere!

Thanks for stopping by, I so appreciate you!  Check back on Friday for a review of some recent NSale purchases I made, all are warm weather approved!  See you then!

    In my 20’s and 30’s, red was my go-to color. But as I got a little older, I found myself drawn to coral and orange. Now that color dominates my closet. It was also my grandmother’s favorite color, so maybe that is why I found myself enamoured of it!

      Awww, how sweet that you and your grandmother share a love of orange! I honestly have very few red or orange pieces but I am slowly changing that. It’s funny how we’re drawn to a certain color or another. My grandmother loved purple, I like purple but love pink. Yeah, I think the tones we like of certain colors mature just like we do. While I still love hot pink in some things it almost seems to young for me. Thanks so much for sharing Robin!

      Blue and orange just look so good together, right?! But heck yeah,wear those orange pants with white to mix it up.

    Orange always looks good on blondes and if you have blue eyes, the blue works also?

    Such a pretty outfit on you! I love that top. I’m trying to think if I have a single orange thing in my closet – which is strange, because I like the color!
