Orange Crush

Someone told me recently that I pair colors in unexpected ways. Is that a kind way of telling me that I don't match? ;)

If you look closely at these photos, you'll clearly see that there are pops of bright orange in this mostly pink scarf.

Jewelry: Various stores around town and the internet =)

Whether I match or not, I have fun wearing bright colors and pairing colors that people might not usually wear. It helps me to feel like I'm spreading a bit of sunshine everywhere I go. =)

Monday was a very rainy, dreary day and these bright orange, highlighter hued tights helped to cheer me up every time I happened to look down.

That was a polite way to deliver that sentiment, at least. My daughter doesn't show as much couth when she tells me that my clothes don't match :)

I love bright colors and putting them together, so I'm completely with you. And the scarf is a great way to tie them all together.

This is such a fun outfit! Love those tights.

Amanda Cobb said...

If people think you don't match, they clearly just lack vision. The tights go just fine with that scarf, and you've balanced it nicely with neutrals. I think it looks great. :)

Also, I was wearing the exact same tights from Target this week!

rlutz said...

i have always love how you have styled such bold color combos. the scarf and the tights are perfect with the rest of your neutral outfit!

Kelly @ Kiwi Womens Style said...

Who says we have to match anyway. I love unexpected pairings and can't wait for the weather to cool off a bit so I can start layering with my coloured tights again.

Thanks for joining in with WW !
