Manic Monday: Orange You Happy?!

Orange is one of those colors that can feel equally as bold as red, but it has a warmer energy.  While red can feel a little ferocious (not a bad thing!), orange feels sunny, dynamic, and inviting. 

I feel like it’s a great color to wear to work for those very reasons.  It instantly puts me in a good mood, and orange often has that affect on people around you.

Skirt:  Eloquii (No longer available)

For today’s look, I paired a silk button-down blouse in a pretty tangerine color with a simple A-line skirt.  I am definitely starting to think about fall fashion, and I loved that this look had a bit of a fall feel to it.

Since it is still summer, I wanted to keep the overall color palette light so I added an aqua tote.  The mix of orange and aqua is one of my favorite color combinations and reminds me of the beach.

Glasses:  Coach
Locket:  Vintage

The overall look was simple, chic, and perfect for work!

For a more subdued and sophisticated take on orange, try pumpkin and rust oranges.  Pumpkin was a hot color on fall runways, so expect to see more of it as the weather cools down.  Wear it now with white, denim, turquoise, or blush pink for a summery desert/Southwestern feel.

Navel orange, peach, and coral are all easy shades for most people to wear and look great year-round.
