Orange: From Summer to Fall


I think the only color I don't have in my closet is orange. It's so bold and bright - and works for summer or fall - so today I am featuring it for Oh, How Pinteresting!

If you'd like to show us your pins of the week, link up here. And if you'd like to follow my boards, I'll be sure to return the favor!


Now onto my rant - why do I live minutes from the Southern California coastline, yet have only been twice this summer? For real? There are people who have yet to even see the Pacific Ocean, but I neglect it's beauty. There are several weekends left so I better start making the most of it!

Are you having an issue that you want to talk about? It'll make you feel better! Link up with Christianna of The Girl With The Blue Bow and join her What the Hell Wednesday blog hop!

I don't wear orange either. I think you have to have a certain kind of skin tone to pull it off!

Lovely pins.

Best wishes and happy week.
Natasha.

Ps Hope you get to go to the beach soon!

The City Boy said...

i have some orange in my closet, but I feel like i never wear it because it is so bright.

love those orange jeans though! Colored jeans are really popular this fall

Alyson said...

you know that i don't own anything in orange! not one thing. I used to hate it because I thought it clashed with my red hair but it's so growing on me. I was thisclose to buying an awesome orange side-zipper skirt at ann taylor... maybe when it goes on sale it will be my first orange. great post!

Cafe Fashionista said...

I have no orange in my wardrobe either - though I do love the color come fall. Pumpkin spice is a nice variation - it's orange mixed with brown, so it's not so bright, yet still festive! :)

Loving all this orange! I don't have any orange in my wardrobe either! I used to have a lot because my high school's colors were orange and black and so I got a little burned out on orange but now that I've been out of high school for a while I think it's time to put some back into my wardrobe!

I love wearing burnt orange, it just screams fall to me!! I even have a few accent pieces that are a brighter orange. But the darker orange is my favorite.

Heather said...

Love all of the orange!! I'll be wearing tons of it for tailgating this fall. :)

Josie said...

I love orange -- especially those killer pants! It's such a great multi-seasonal color but I don't own much of it either.

Morning! well you're doing much better than I am at taking advantage of being so close to the beach... I've lived in LA my whole life and the last time I went to the beach was in 2006 in Florida! Shame on me!

Christianna said...

Goodness I just LOVE me some orange! I'm glad you featured the color!

And I haven't been to the beach much this year either. I only live like 30 minutes away. We are slackers, but that's ok!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

oranges and corals are going to transition into fall so well! great color choice.

Lauren said...

The closest to orange I'll travel is coral. I can work the coral, the orange just looks awful on me. Though, that *could* have something to do with Oklahoma State and Texas both rolling deep with the orange - and being the biggest rivals of OU. I can admire orange and it's beauty - I just have a hard time rocking it.

San said...

Those are nice pins. I am usually not a big fan of orange, but you picked some nice things... love the dark-orange top :)

Madeline said...

I think orange is such a great color for autumn, it's like you're co-ordinated with the falling leaves..haha! :) I also really like burgundy and darker blue for this autumn. Lovely post!

Orange is a hard colour to pull off, but it's definitely a nice colour to wear in the fall! :D

Jessica Renee said...

Orange is SO pretty for fall but I don't own anything orange either! Now you've given me some ideas so thanks!

and hello, get yourself to that coastline asap!! Do it for us who wish we had it nearby! :p

BellaVida said...

Orange is so pretty, especially the orange roses.

Kris said...

love that orange! I have no orange. I must change that!

drollgirl said...

get thee to the beach! i need to do the same, but the drive to and from is AWFUL and it holds me back! argh!

Jackie said...

I love the color orange and yet as I was reading your post, I realized that I don't have any orange in my wardrobe either. I may have to fix this soon. I really like the orange capri's you have shown.

Katie said...

I don't have much orange either but I love the tank in that outfit!

Christina said...

I don't think I have any orange in my closet, but I love the color. Perfect for fall. All of those pictures are amazing and I really want that wallpaper, but I'm too afraid to wallpaper a room. Hahaha. We live 2 1/2 hours from the beach and only go once a year...in October. When it's freezing and raining. Hahahaha.

Bravoe Runway said...

I feel the same way as you regarding the water...I haven't been to the beach 1 time this summer and what do you know? It is late August!

Jodi said...

I never use to like orange or own anything orange until I was diagnosed w/ MS. Orange is the color for MS so now I have tons of orange stuff and have really grown to like it!!

x_coribeth_x said...

I used to despise the color orange, but it has really grown on me in the past couple of years. I really like it! :)

Chelsea @ {twotwentyone} said...

I don't have a ton of orange in my closet either. I refuse to wear it with black because it instantly reminds me of Halloween. Ha! I like the jean shorts, orange tank, and white cardigan combo.

Punctuation Mark said...

i saw that a lot of stores have a lot of orange these days... i love it!!!

Miss Lindsay said...

I love orange and navy!!! Great compilation.

Mimi said...

i did another post on pinterest too, haha! ;)

anyways, i don't have a lot of orange in my closet either... except for a tank top which i took from my mom's closet (shh!) and a tube top that was a gift from my best friend (who probably noticed that i don't have a lot of orange...).

<3, Mimi

Orange is one of my absolute favorite colors to wear and to decorate with. The zesty bike pic is my favorite.

Girl, please please please go to the beach ASAP! I am BEYOND jealous that you are so close to it!

Couture Carrie said...

Awesome post!
Love those orange pants!

Jess said...

Those orange skinnies are amazing!

Veronika said...

Truth...Orange has always been my least favorite color, but I am LOVING all of these pics! =) Beautiful post! And...I know what you mean 100% about the beach. Hubby & I lived in CA all our lives (moved to Texas 3 months ago) & we lived 10 minutes from the beach & ask me how many times we went together in 4 years...zero. Not ONE time! Can you believe that? First time to the beach together...Our Honeymoon In Kauai. =) SO SO crazy! =)

Marian said...

By far my favorite color for the Fall!! And those skinnies are a must-buy for me!!
