How is summer treating you? I am gorging on ice cream and sorbets already, and my shorts and sundresses are finally seeing the light of the day.
Talking about summer, I keep reading everywhere that "Orange" is the "New Black". Many consider this true and have started living by this new rule. However, I do not believe this will ever hold true for a person like me. My entire wardrobe is full of a hundred and fifty shades of black and I intend to keep it that way.
Having said that, I love love LOVE orange! A nice bright orange is a great pick-me-upper any day. I especially adore orange nails and lips. Also, a nice orange dress (link here) or a perky little skirt (link here) can brighten up an otherwise dull day.
So why pick and choose, when you can have both black and orange, in the same outfit?
I had put together this outfit for a lunch last week. Although, I suppose, this would work perfectly for a fancy dinner too. Formal shorts paired with a simple silk shirt and black kitten heel pumps. The clutch makes the ensemble a little fancier, whereas, the choker just gives it a quirky little edge.
Hope you like the outfit and are tempted to shop for some orange!
