i’ve always liked the color orange…i like it with stripes, i love it paired with light blue and with navy. i went to university of Illinois, the colors of the school are you guessed it, orange and blue…maybe this is why i’ve always had an orange crush….

….i’m not the only one, tory burch loves orange, bright lacquered orange….leandra medine, the man repeller, wore a lot of orange during spring 2016 fashion weeks (actually orange was not only seen a lot in the street, it was a big trend on the spring 2o16 runways)…

….i also love rooms with a bit of orange, jeffrey bilhuber does them well, so does tom scheerer, and then of course there’s hermès, who doesn’t love hermès, especially hermès orange boxes?!

speaking of hermès, today i got an early birthday gift, michael got me an hermès apple watch…i’ve been wanting one, it inspired this post, after all i do have a big orange crush!
