WWL: Tangerine Dream

I know with fall rapidly approaching... I, as a fashion blogger, am supposed to write about burgundy and houndstooth and cognac colored boots and how excited I am for pumpkin spice lattes. But... I think this fall I want to focus on adding colors to an otherwise drab day-to-day. And since Pantone named the 2012 color of the year Tangerine Tango [which I learned from my friend @ A Bit of Sass], I think we should embrace tangerine right up until the END of 2012. I just don't think it is fair that hot summer months get all the brights. 

You see, there are ways to for tangerine to tango right on into your closet- no matter the season. I am lusting after that dress paired with black tights and boots, and a big/bright carry-all that will fit every one of my worldly possessions?? LOVE IT. A scarf or necklace + an all-black ensemble is an easy way to break up the routine a little bit. OR, just some lipstick will do the trick. Either way, I think we all can agree to make it mandatory to stand against boring and welcome tangerine as many ways as possible while it is still the color of the year. Orange you glad I did this post??

*As a final note... those hair ties?? AMAZING. LIFE CHANGING. I received one as a sample in my Birchbox a few months ago, and have since ordered a couple packs. You can put your hair in a ponytail, braid, or bun... and it won't leave a kink or bend in the hair. Trust me. You need these.


  1. I love this color, too! It was such a hit this summer, I'm hoping it will still look good in the fall as well.

  2. Color is always welcomed in my book! I'm not ready to give up all the bright colors come this fall!

  3. Love this color! Definitely more exciting than wine red!

  4. OMG that dress. I don't know what it is but I always go for dresses in orange more than any other color. Great picks!! xoxo
