An Awful Lot of Orange

Monday, 14 November 2011



So, did I mention I quite like orange at the moment? I will wear some different coloured clothes at some point soon but for now, you will just have to put up with autumnal themed outfits. The cat print shoes will make an appearance this week though, I promise.

I fell upon this jumper with squeaks of joy when I was shopping in Newcastle. It is just so very, very orange. Am I in danger of looking like a walking pumpkin? Probably. I'd much rather that than drown in a sea of boring black and grey clothes though.





May we all take a moment to glory in the wonderful glittertasticness of these brogues? Who said sensible, waterproof shoes had to be boring?

  1. Your Blog inspired necklace is beyond amaaaaazing! I love that you wear orange and you styled it so well-I got a bright orange J crew cardigan at the thrift store for $3 and I still haven't been brave enough to wear it-I need to suck it up and copy your style-but just a little bit! Xoxo Lori

  5. I love your outfit Alex- that skirt is perfect for flouncing around in, and the orange definitely beats drabness that matches the sky... The bag is proper amazing and glitter brogues get top marks in my book. xx

  10. I love, love, love the netting under the skirt. It pays to adapt things from the high street.
    Also loving the orange colour - more people should wear bright colours, especially on gloomy days.

  18. That skirt is absolutely gorgeous!! The necklace is very awesome too! :) If orange is your colour, embrace it! I'm a purple lass myself. Orange really suits you, and like you said it's better than being stuck in black & grey all the time! Xo

  34. LOVE the orange jumper. Fell in love with an orange (well the shop said pumpkin but...) leather jacket in Amsterdam and am now pondering whether to order it online (they didn't have my size instore). Surely something orange would be the perfect Netherlands souvenir?! xx

  35. Aww you look brilliant! I'm loving autumnal colours at the mo too but I worry that oranges and mustards clash with my blonde hair. Making up for it by buying everything in burgundy though :S Totally gonna have to get some of those shoes, they're amazing! xxx
