Orange You Trendy!

I read this article on Realsimple.com about orange being this spring season’s trendy color. And I thought, “Perfect! I just bought some cute orange earrings.” I had been seeing the color sprinkled in stores like Target and New York & Co and was surprisingly drawn to it. So, I thought I’d work it into my wardrobe modestly. I got these at Compass Trading Company.

I used them to add a tiny citrus splash to this outfit. I only almost sprained my ankle twice while running Mommy errands and grocery shopping. These shoes are cute but not made to chase a two year old down the cereal aisle. By the end of the day I noticed strawberry stains on my pants. Again, my two year old—they were his afternoon snack. And, some other kind of stain on my backside. Great. This is why I’ve only worn these pants from Express like three times in the past five years.

And FYI, basically the article recommends wearing orange with:

Navy

Hot Pink

Violet/Purple

Paired with too light of pastels and you end up looking like an Easter Egg.

Pin It!
