Orange ya glad I didn't say Black!

Orange and black, I normally wouldn't put those colors together, purely because of the risk of coming off as too halloweenie.  Yes, I said halloweenie.  However, if there is a week for this to be done, this is it!  I actually ended up liking this combination more than I thought I would.  It might be because this wonderful blouse is more on the rust side of orange.  That's okay though, it's always fun to try new things!  So excited for Halloween this week, finally decided what our costumes are going to be.  Stay tuned for the reveal!  :)




Hat: Gap (similar) // Blouse: Jennifer Lopez  //  Skinnies: Target // Heels: Express


 Chain Bracelet: JCP (similar) // Gold Cuffs: Bip and Bop

Heels: Express



Have a spooky Holiday!

  4. This looks amazing! I love the hat. I think you could definitely wear this at other times of the year without it seeming too halloweeny!

  12. Haha, such a cute title for this post.
    I have a neon-ish yellow top that I think would look great with this purple cardigan that I have, but I haven't put them together at the risk of coming off too Halloweeny. Lol. It's what I'm wearing to work tomorrow!
    Love your hair and glasses here, and the way you wore your hair with the hat. Very cute!
    And thank you very much for your condolences.. I really appreciated your comment. :)
