Color Me Orange

Vest & Tank: Club Monaco, Skirt: Olive Olivia, Belt: Guess, Heels: Brian Atwood, Bag: YSL, Necklace: F21, rx Specs: Warby Parker, Watch: Gucci

I have been a heavy orange phase recently (never in my life have I uttered those words before) and I don't really have an explanation for it besides "it speaks to me right now" (god I love it when I get deep). I was immediately drawn to this skirt when I walked into the store...besides the color it has a very Mary McFadden look to it with the fortuny pleats. So classic. So me. Where do I sign?!
My love for leopard started at an early age, 10 years old to be exact. That is when I begged my Mom to buy me this belt and I haven't been able to part with it since. ...so, just in case you were going to hop on over to Guess and look for it,  you'll have to get in your Delorean and go back about 20 years!

 Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

I adore orange with animal prints, probably my favorite color/print combo. It's like red with leopard, only more unexpected. Love.

Also, my fiance is in the process of ordering Warby Parker glasses. I suggested them to him after seeing yours' a few weeks ago. Thanks for the inspiration!
