Fashion Friday My Love Affair With Orange

Happy Fashion Friday!  I’m so excited for today’s post and hope you can all link up with me!  My absolute favorite color to wear is coral, so of course I am thrilled that orange and shades of orange are in this season.  They brighten everything up and I know it sounds cliche, but make me happy!  Why?  Well, I did some research on the color orange, and here’s what I found:
“The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.”  Wow…see, what did I tell you?
“Orange relates to our gut instincts, or our gut reaction.”
“The color psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit.”
“Orange brings spontaneity and a positive outlook on life and is a great color to use during tough economic times, keeping us motivated and helping us to look on the bright side of life.”
“Orange is extroverted and uninhibited, often encouraging exhibitionism or at the very least, showing off!”  
Words associated with orange: “sociable, optimistic, enthusiastic, cheerful, self-confident, independent, flamboyant, extroverted, adventurous, warm-hearted.”
Well, now I see why I wanted this orange Cole Haan bag so badly today!!!

  1. I love how a pop of orange can completely change an outfit or space. I can’t pull it off when I wear it so tend to go more towards coral. I would like to get a cute pair of orange wedges or a a cute clutch to go with some new white summer jeans!! xo

  2. Hi Kori! Thanks for the FF hop! Love the first pair of shoes and your new cole Haan bag is to die for! Super cute.

  3. Orange is awesome! It’s one of my favorite colors, but I have a hard time wearing it with my skin tone. I’m best in the burnt variety. Loved all the facts about the color!

  4. I am loving orange too- oh and melon and peach or whatever everyone is calling it…I especially love the first set of shoes! -Jessica
