Friday's Fancies: Overly Orange



(Images via 1, 2)

***

Greetings, my loves, and happy Friday!

What a pain was the blogger meltdown this week? Makes you wonder what in the world we did before all these beautiful blogs were established, right?! My Pink and Green Thursday post from yesterday was deleted, unfortunately (along with some comments from Wednesday's post), and I had to republish. I probably wouldn't have even bothered going to all the trouble, but I was so in love with the Plum Pretty Sugar feature that I just had to!

Anyway, it's Friday now, blogger is up and running, and everyone should be smiling for the weekend. I'm joining my friend AV today and doing my very first Friday's Fancies post!



The secret behind Friday's Fancies (and its crazy popularity) is all about dreaming BIG. Forget about the price tag or the practicality and let your fashion imagination run wild! For my first link up I wanted to share some gorgeous citrus-inspired images that I've been collecting this season. Everywhere I look these days I'm seeing nothing but orange!

How would I do orange? With a little color blocking, of course!

You can find a list featuring each item on my Brown Eyed Belle polyvore site.

Are you loving the orange trend as much as me? Maybe it's because it's such a good shade for my skin tone and hair color, but I'm smitten!

Sadly, orange is not my color, though peach is kind of nice on me. I love that last outfit!! Gorgeous. This is a fun idea :)

haha, I'm laughing at what Lauren Grace said - Criss and I were having a panic attack too! Love this post - I'm just as smitten with the pops of colors and bold orange being integrated into my wardrobe, yet I haven't found "that piece" that I know I'll love... adorable post!
