an orange a day...


 Jacket - flea market / Top and jewellery - H&M / Skirt - Primark (vacay in England) 
 Clutch - Old Navy / Shoes - Random shop on Orfus Road

I wasn't planning on wearing this skirt today (seen here), but when I checked out one of my favourite blogs, Pretty Shiny Sparkly, the Bloggers do it Better assignment was up and calling out my maxi skirt! I was really excited about this. I immediately spotted my printed and wooden clutch and knew it had to be a part of the outfit. Because the orange is so in your face, I had to pair it with a light colour... and why not white? Originally, I was going to pair the ensemble with a light jean jacket, and then I saw this old army green one in the back of my closet - time to come out of the dark! I think the combination of the two kind of goes. Besides, it's a little chili at night so it definitely came in handy. Overall, I think the focus remained on the loud skirt and nothing really competed with it.

  34. This outfit is fan-freakin-tastic. lovelovelove the skirt and the color of it! I found you "twice" tonight. lolol. The 1st time was your feature on Fashion Bomb Daily. Then a couple hours later, I checked out the 'Arm Party' entries on Pretty Shiny Sparkly and noticed that you participated. Anywho, what I'm trying to say is that I like your blog.
