If you can finish the sentence from the title of this post, we are destined to be best blog friends. If not, well, I suggest you quickly brush up on your classic movie knowledge :)
I've never been a big fan of orange (especially when it has to do with a certain university in Texas.) I've always considered the color to be an enemy with my first and true color love, pink. But when I saw this orange number at Ann Taylor, I had to try it. Sure, it had all the wrong things going for it...the color, the oversized bag-lady territory...but something called me to try it on. And I'm so glad I did, because I LOVE it! I wore this last week on Cinco de Mayo when most of you were sunning on the patio and sipping margaritas. But I was stuck working a shift at the store, so I figured if I had to be putting back clothes instead of cocktails, I could at least look festive doing it :)
Open cardigan: Ann Taylor (sold out in orange, but here in different colors)
Dress: J. Crew (its navy jersey, but looks black in the pictures)
Necklace: vintage; from a trip to Cabo
Ring: David Yurman
Earrings: my mom's from the 80s :)
The orange looks a little different in real life than it does in these pictures, but I guess that's what you get with not-so-awesome bathroom lighting :)
I got this chunky beaded necklace when I went to Cabo one spring break in college, and even though I love it, I always have a hard time pairing with actual outfits. So when I couldn't decide between the beaded or the gold necklace, I just decided to wear both!
PS: Notice a different background from my usual bathroom OOTD pics? When Matt and I moved a few weekends ago, we had to start sharing a bathroom. Which sadly meant my wall of jewelry storage system had to be relocated (tear!) It took some getting used to, but I'm adjusting :)
So while my love for pink is still in full force, its going to have to make some room, because I have a feeling this orange number is going to see a ton of wear this summer. Is anyone else being a traitor to their favorite color this season?
