Orange You Glad It’s the Weekend!
Ohhhh many thanks for this streak of Indian Summer. After a nice coastal run fueled by a delicious fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie & hot coffee courtesy of M, I’m settling in to the makings of a pretty great Saturday. So here’s what’s on my rambling mind today…
I don’t know about you, but I tend to fixate on certain colors. I go in phases that can take a couple weeks or a couple years to cycle through. But I have 3 favorites that are pretty much mainstays in my “signature” color palette (if there is such a thing). And orange is one of them. On trend or no, orange & I have a thing, an understanding if you will! It’s warm, happy and can handle all four seasons with its varying shades – think mandarin, coral, jack-o-lantern then downshift to the more mutable peach, clay & sunset.
Art & illustration should make you happy. Every time I look at this (it’s on my desktop) I smile. I wish I had notecards, a t-shirt, coasters & a hat with this on it. Oh, and a poster size for my office. Alas, after trying to hunt it down, I can’t find the original anywhere. So if you know who created this, let me know so I can give proper credit and say thank you!
I’ve mentioned this clutch before. And am going to pony up for this beautiful orange number. Clutch #3 to my collection. Trust me, you’ll never regret it. You can hold all your cards/money/iphone/lipgloss in this fabulous piece of art. It comes in a rainbow of gorgeous colors, you will go back for more! ♥
I was exposed to the beautiful world of Thomas Paul by my fabulous girlfriend, Jenna. She has incredible taste and a knack for buying you the perfect present. She bought me these sea life small plates that I still use almost every day!
Obviously, these pumpkins are right up my alley! Coastal, beach and so dang cool. If you are crafty, Coastal Living has the step-by-step on their website, here, to recreate these beauties. Warning: it involves power tools. For the record, my pumpkins will look nothing like this, but a girl can always admire other people’s artistry.
On that note, I’m throwing on my absolute favorite Orange Vix bikini (above), unfortunately that’s not me, and going for a dip in the sea to pay homage and say thank you to mother nature for this streak of warmth & sunshine. Happy Saturday!!! ♥
