Orange Crush


Oh orange, I've always had such a major crush on you. There's something oh so luxurious and chic about you. I have a pair of gorgeous leather flats that scream Hermes {they're not...}. And every time I slip you on I feel like a million buck. I have a similar feeling when I put on my boots. And then they're my wrap. You look so elegant hanging on that hanger in my closet or even draped over my chair and each time I wrap you around me I instantly get transported to the Champs-Elysee. It just has that magical power, don't you think?

Can you believe I used to hate the colour orange? But then something happened, I saw a stylish woman wearing an orange cardigan... and of course I had to go out and get one just like hers. I love it now!

I always love orange in interiors when I see it in pictures but funny, I don't have any in my own home! I can't really wear it well but opt for more of a coral which I love!! xo
