Last year, two of the items I particularly loved were my floral purse with teal, orange, and brown (which I dragged out again this year – it just speaks to me) and my white jacket with orange-red, lime and gold flowers (it is really more subdued than it sounds – it is just joyful).
So perhaps those two favorites have inspired me. I want to wear bright, clear oranges. Red-oranges. Anything that is vibrant and orange will do.
In fact, I just bought a red-orange outfit today. Just a skirt and a tank – a base outfit that may look good with a black jacket and some zebra print shoes. (Ha! Thought I was gonna say leopard, didn't you?)
I also bought the brightest orange peasant-style top I have ever seen today. It is so bright I almost can’t stand it.
But I will wear it. Oh yes I will.
And next summer, I will probably look back at this year's purchases and wonder what the heck I was thinking.
But right now, at least, I feel orange.
