{Outfit Inspiration} Brown & Orange

Orange is a tricky color for me. Not just because of my general paleness, but it's one of those colors that is iffy for a blonde. Without enough saturation, it can send me straight to Jaundice Land (not a fun place to be!). Also, I have a fear of looking like The Great Pumpkin, Charlie I use it in small doses.

When Will, from one of my favorite blogs, Bright.Bazaar, posted this stunning picture, I was instantly inspired.

If you're going to hose a room down in color, then go for it with vibrancy! But what keeps this room from being garish, is anchoring it with dark the sideboard, table legs, table and lampshades. I love the mix of patterns, and how the white in the rug and chevron chair ties them together.

Here's my outfit interpretation from this beautiful room:


Could I look anymore painfully awkward? I'm actually bracing myself against the tree so I don't tumble into the staph-pond! But I guess it's a step-up from the headless self-photo I used here. (Thanks Jen for being my straight-faced photographer!)

Oh, and since some of you emailed me for outfit details last time:
(cardi -- jcrew (where else?!), ruffle top -- target, skirt -- forever 21 (or 'In there forever' as Mr. Sugarplum refers to it), shooz -- Nine West)

What about you guys? Does orange appear much in your wardrobe or home decor?
