burnt orange, not banana



 



Gap Corduroy skinnies, f21 cloche hat & top, feather necklace via Something Urban

The weather today has made a complete switch, and it feels like Spring (boo for allergies).  Although I enjoyed the sunshine and the cool air, I want Winter to finish what it started...PUHLEASE. I still have some really awesome acrylic sweaters to rock, and I'm not ready to show my pale legs just yet! haha

When I saw this shirt, the bright red orange (Have you seen cardigan from the Steven Alan men's lookbook? LOVE) really caught my eye and it was made from a cheesecloth fabric--which is lightweight and gauzelike so its perfect for layering and for Springtime days like this.

Colors are the first thing to catch my eye, and I love bright bold colors because they can brighten up even the gloomiest of days. Check out some the color trends for Spring 2011 from Refinery 29! Are you excited as I am? 

What color are you most excited to wear/try?

The color I'm most looking forward to wearing is definitely purple/violet :) I saw these amazing purple trousers in the River Island lookbook & I really (badly) need those!

I'm sensing a more coral vibe here (and lucky! that you found a beautifully colored wall to match your oufit's theme!). It's always fun to look at what's deemed as the "official it colors of the season," but at this point I'm not sure. Maybe yellow! Just because I take it as a challenge to wear (to put it bluntly, because I'm Asian, haha) and it's all bright and sunny. :)
