[Insert pun about orange here]

Based on the blogs I've been reading, orange is pretty much the most happening color this spring; and I was happy to welcome this ruffled linen mini into my closet. It was a birthday gift from my Brother and his Wife (hehe, I can say wife now) and today was a great day to be wearing it. So sunny and warm!
Also, based on the other blogs I've been reading, I should have given this post some kind of title involving a clever re-purposing of the word orange.  There are at least half a dozen "Orange You Glads" and "Orange Crushes" out there, and no one can seem think of anything else.

Yup, I'm wearing the MRKT sandals again. If I'm not careful all my other shoes might start a mutiny against me.

Ahh. I haven't hopped on the orange wagon yet. About all I'm craving is orange nail polish. But this skirt looks so lovely on you. I swear, you can pull of ANY color. And your purple nails are adorable with the whole thing.

$100 to Shopbop? I'm on my way...

Loving all of the lovely color you incorporate into all of your outfits! Plus, I'm more or less obsessed with those nails; they're the perfect shade of purple.

Awesome skirt (and I'm really glad you decided to forgo the "orange" based word play!). The ruffle detail is so pretty....and how chic does your gorgeous necklace look with it?

There's something about orange... I love it when I see in on others, and you're no exception- I especially love the turquoise necklace you paired with this dress, the contrast is just stunning!- but for some reason, every time I see a beautiful orange piece in a store, I suddenly balk :( My goal is to own - and be brave enough to wear - one orange piece by the end of the summer. Maybe all I need is some of the good weather you've been experiencing to inspire me :)
xox,

I know, there's not a whole lot you can do with the word orange. Oh well. I love this skirt--the ruffle detail in front is so pretty! It looks great paired with all the other colors in the top and necklace--what a fun, colorful look!

Marie said...

This is the perfect orange summer skirt!:D

I like that you paired it with a sheer and abstract top.. the necklace polishes the whole outfit.:D

I've been looking everywhere for orange this spring but haven't found anything I like yet. That skirt is just darling and I love it with the brushstroke patterned top, I would never have thought to wear that!

Lorena said...

Orange juiced Lydia, I like it.
I searched some time for orange and got me two tops.
I have worn them once and fear pairing it with black and being pointed to as "halloweenesque".

Iris said...

I love all the colors of this outfit, every single one!
