Orange: The Right Bright

Orange is having a major moment this spring. If you’re a fan of the bold, fiery color that’s said to exude enthusiasm, then you’re in luck because orange finds are plentiful. From makeup to clothing, orange seems like the right bright to sport this spring.

I found today’s featured top, the J.Crew Matte Crepe tee, on sale in-store. The top has a basic t-shirt cut with a T-shaped seaming detail in the front. Its color was the main attraction for me. By the way, to expand the wearing possibilities, I had my tee shortened. The tee was initially quite long on my short self and I would’ve probably had to wear it tucked all the time.

    I absolutely adore the style! And the hair!!! I can never get mine natural hair to do that! My high bun never turns out like that.

      Aww thanks, LaTunya! My high puff requires a little coaxing to look like this.

    This color is beautiful on you! Love the pop with that clutch.

    Oh and I love your hair too!

    P.S. Making my way through the 100 black blogger list! I thought it was a great idea 🙂

    I never would have thought to put together that orange and that green. But it is a combination that looks fantastic on you. Your hair looks wonderful too.
