Orange You Glad


Orange you glad it's Hump Day?  Orange you glad this frigid cold blast is almost over?  Sorry, I just couldn't control the Good Humor jokes today. 

The only positive of this artic freeze - cold weather gear.  Case in point, this orange wool trench.  I love how a good pop of color in your outerwear can completely revamp a look or outfit.  It is certainly helping me add a little spunk to my neutral palette rut.  Perhaps I can blame it on the weather, but I am in a neutral slump these days.  I find myself forcing a touch of color in either jewels or accessories on a daily basis.  I have never been a 'brights' person, but I may have fallen too far on the other end of the spectrum.  I am trying to make the most of these chilly days by bringing out all of my colorful snow-bunny gear (although sadly, most of my coats are black and white as well...)  Luckily white is a neutral, so I will be rocking my winter white with a side of grey. 

Do you ever get in color slumps?  I hope everyone is staying warm.  Please remember although they have fabulous fur coats, your pets need a warm place to sleep as well.  Please don't leave them outside!  My two pups are rotten and sleep in the bed with us every night. 

Thanks for reading!  Go crush your Wednesday!  Linkups below.

  1. Ok I love this coat! I have a similar coat (it's the same color) that I've found tooth and nail saying it's Hunter's Red (whatever that is) instead of Orange but I guess it's time to give up the fight. You're right it's orange. :) You look fabulous - found you via Shanna!

  2. I love white pants with a tan top! Great outfit!

  3. I always say the exact same thing - my bright green coat really helps in the winter! It makes me happy in the midst of dreary colors. And I am the same way - I have been wearing grays and blacks since after Christmas. I don't know if it's the cold or just a desire for more calm colors? Either way, I'm hoping to get out of the rut too!

    I am so glad I found your blog via the linkup - I am a new follower via GFC!
