 Energetic, excitement, enthusiasm, warmth, attention getting, ambition....these are all descriptors I found when researching the psychology of the color orange.  Seems to me that my beloved orange is in fact a perfect color for fashion.....the happiest color of them all!
Who wouldn't be happy wearing a twirly, shiny orange dress?

Orange at the Emmy's

Would you dare?

Orange perks up an otherwise neutral outfit.

Orange just seems to make everyone look healthy.

Would you combine orange and camel?

Apparently orange can help you concentrate.

I love that her lips match her dress.

Without the orange shoes...she'd just be....smokin hot Cameron Diaz.

I love love love the orange/hot pink combo. Yes.

Talk about "attention getting."

Maggie G. adorable in orange lace.

Love this.  Makes me think of Dr. Seuss, but in a good way.

The perfect spring coat.

Simple and perfect.
As much as we adore our orange around here, Braxton and I don't have any of the luscious color in our wardrobes.  You see, we live about 45 minutes from Blacksburg Virginia...home of Virginia Tech....which is home to the Hokie football team.  While I have absolutely nothing against VT or their beloved team, I am not a sports fan, and around here the wearing of orange (the VT colors are orange and burgundy, not kidding) invites comments like "how 'bout them Hokies?" and "do you have season tickets?" and other questions I don't care to answer.  It's just easier living here when no one knows that I/we know absolutely nothing about football....nothing.
Those of you who don't live within a 1,000 mile radius of Blackburg, or those who are Hokie fans, enjoy your orange, it looks great on you.
Have a beautiful day.

Yes, I would combine Orange and Camel, as long as it came with one hump or two :). Brax

Orange & hot pink is my absolute favorite! I have shoes and a watch those colors.

I'm with you on that one Leslie, I can't get enough of orange/hot pink. Do you wear your shoes and watch in the winter?

I too love pink and orange together --- it's been my staple lately.

Yay, I'm so glad everyone seems to love this combination. I've always thought pale
girls like us can rock pink and orange like no one else!
