"Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed."-Elle Woods

Items in this set:
Tory Burch Orange Reva Flats
Steal This Look: Sun Porch by Dale Saylor : Remodelista, $1,125
Bringing Home The Birkin: Bringing Home the Birkin and Barcelona
absolutely beautiful things: The Hermes Blanket
While I don't disagree that orange will never replace pink, I've recently become enchanted with the chicness and versatility of the color. My orange Revas are one of my favorite things to pair with a nautical striped shirt and jeans (blue or white denim) to add a little punch to the outfit.

Orange and blue isn't the only great combo of orange with another color... orange and pink can be a great departure from the traditional preppy pink and green (a la Tory Burch)... and pairing orange with pinks and whites avoids looking like a jack o lantern (I never wear orange with black...not even on Halloween, really!)

Of course, it's the classic Hermes color (how I would love to own one of their cashmere throws... I suggest picking up Michael Tonello's Bringing Home the Birkin for a fashion-obsessed twist on Eat, Pray, Love.) And it's the signature color of Veuve Clicquot (follow them on twitter here.) And of course the very Florida-esque color is a favorite of the one and only Lilly Pulitzer (a go-to for tailgates!)

I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect orange cashmere pashmina... but as a blonde I'm a bit weary of wearing the color in a block so close to my face. 

And who could forget... orange is the color of our trusty friend the blogger icon. I know it lights up my toolbar!


  1. Thanks for the kind words about my book (and for reading).
    Happy New Year and
    be well!

  2. Love Hermes orange! I would kill to sip Veuve while lounging on one of those blankets! xx
