Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
First, I'd like to acknowledge this day in our American History, 9-11, a day I will never forget. I remember distinctively what I was doing and where I was the moment I received the news of what took place and the feeling of fear that overtook me knowing my mother was working in NYC that very moment. I don't think any American will forget that day, it's become so engraved in our hearts and with that, I will never take for granted the lives that so unselfishly responded and acted with such bravery, paying the ultimate price to save whatever life they could. A family friend of ours, a nurse practitioner, was a volunteer days after and has since suffered health issues. May we never forget and always value the commitment our first responders, soldiers, and volunteers both here and abroad, dedicate for our freedom.
How was your weekend? On Saturday, we had my sister and brother-in-law come over to celebrate Eddie's birthday, which as you know was last Thursday. These past two weeks has been a whirlwind with family coming and going to see Aviah, especially since she recently turned two months; I still can't get over the fact that she's growing so fast!
Anyway, there are some colors trending for this upcoming season, one of which is orange! I know it may not be a favorite of many, since it's quite bold, but there are different shades and ways you can wear it in a way that's suitable for your personal style. I've teamed up with my blogger babe Quinn of Qustom Quinns to, hopefully, give you some different ideas on how you can wear the color this fall.
With a spectrum ranging from neon to rusty tones, there's a shade I'm confident that everyone would look great in and feel comfortable in. When it comes to skin tones, I'd suggest if you have cool undertones, you opt for shades, like the one I'm wearing, that have blue undertones, in addition to rust, leaning more towards brown. If you have warm undertones, shades that have more a red or golden undertone would look great on you, nearing the neon shades. Of course, true shades of orange would look great on anyone, in my opinion.
Since we're still in summer and the temps are relatively warm, I decided to style a linen orange blazer with a pair of denim distressed shorts. To add some fall-like touches, I added in my Louis Vuitton bag, which I tend to wear most this time of year leading into fall, along with one of my favorite sandals that are in a rich camel color. By combining the orange with darker browns, you instantly and subtlety enhance the fall-time mood, creating an outfit that's perfect for this time of year.
What are YOUR thoughts on this color trend? Is orange a color you'd consider embracing and if so, how do you see yourself doing so? Hopefully Quinn and I gave you some inspiration to work with!
Thanks so much for stopping by, my gorgeous friends, and I hope you have the most amazing start to your week!
