Orange You Glad

I secretly think Pantone's dictums about the color of the season are a bit ridiculous, but I do like the orange it choose for springtime--it's bright and cheerful and goes with all the pinks and yellows I typically love. Plus it makes a great occasion to reference out the oldest and most repetitive fruit-themed knock knock joke in the book.

Totally with you... don't really understand how the Pantone gods dictate to us earthlings what colour we must wear this season BUT I am kinda digging orange.
I've been influenced... dangit.

I love your skirts, but it's so refreshing to see you wearing jeans! I hope that didn't sound patronizing or mom-like, haha, I didn't mean it like that. So crisp and classic!
