Blood Orange…

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was the perfect balance of fun and relaxation. I had an amazing time at the step show I mentioned in the last post, Friday night and on Saturday, J and I just stayed in and ate leftovers, drank homemade margaritas, and had a Parenthood marathon!! I love lazy days, I don’t get them often so when I do, I take full advantage! lol
As much as I’ve been loving red lately, I am also loving deep orange hues. The blazer I wore to homecoming this past weekend had orange in it (full outfit post coming soon!), the blazer I wore here during J’s proposal to me was blood orange, and finally here in this look, are all examples of how much I having been loving this color. And it’s not just any orange, its the deep, dark, orange, almost red color that I can’t seem to get enough of! It really adds a special touch to any outfit, that a regular orange just won’t do, like in this look layered over a simple oxford shirt, jeans, and leopard loafers!
Style Guide: When wearing this vibrant hue, keep every piece in the rest of the outfit subtle and almost neutral so that the sweater remains the focal point of the look.
Found the cutest pink exposed brick building and I just had to stop for a couple of quick shots!

    I love this outfit! I'm definitely loving blood orange! Another one of my favorite colors this season has been anything in plum or wine. Fall colors just do it for me!

    I love the simplicity and chic style. I am such big fan of burnt orange. It looks great over the fall background

    That sweater is a gorgeous color for fall – and pairing it with those leopard flats is perfection!
