Yay, Orange!

Black mini-poncho, INC. Orange sweater vest, Cherokee. Black sweater, Merona/Mossimo/M-something. Gray skirt, Eddie Bauer. Gray tights, Merona. Orange slingbacks, Gianni Bini. Orange brooch, thrifted.

Yay, orange! I love orange. I don’t care that redheads aren’t supposed to wear orange (or red or pink).

I closed all the doors in the hallway for this shot – trapping Zoro in the basement. Monty then wanted to play “paws” under the door. Here is my orange cat, in the orange hallway, with my orange-accented outfit.

Your outfit is terrific. I am one of those who happens to think orange looks great on redheads. I am also a redhead and many times receive compliments when I wear orange - go figure. I have just recently discovered your blog and find it to be a delight. Your individual style is so refreshing. A nice change of pace from the "cookie-cutter" outfits we all see too often. You have been an inspiration to me to put together new outfits from my closet. I have also very much enjoyed several other blogs you have listed. Keep up the good work for all of us and keep the photos coming.

Love the shoes! I am the same way about yellow. I love it and wear it in all its wonderful shades regardless of any rules.

I think the whole "redheads can't wear..." thing is silly. I have red hair and I wear red, pink and orange all the time. I think your skin tone has more to do with what colors look good on you than your hair color. People just have to find the right shades of colors. For me, jewel tones and more saturated colors look best. I'm super pale so pastels just blend into my skin and wash me out.
