Tangerine Dreams

The title of this post is very fitting today.  Why?  Because I seriously dreamed about this color and post last night.  I think it was my subconscious mind stressing because I didn't finish up until this morning.  I always do my posts the night before and that didn't quite happen yesterday.  I had bigger fish to fry...like hanging out with my girls in the "hood".  I mean, what would you choose, work on a blog post or have some vino on the back porch with your lady friends?  Well, I obviously chose the latter and it's going to be a long day, if you know what I mean.

Today is My Friday's Fancies with av at long distance loving.  And I love the theme that she chose this week...Tangerine Tango.  It is "the" color for Spring in both fashion and home decor.  The skirt was my inspiration for this look.  I love everything about it: stripes, color, length and the pleats.  I am typically not a fan of white shoes, but I came across these wedges and fell in love.  And the pint-size purple shoulder bag is less than $3.00!  A serious score! 

Tangerine Tango





What is your favorite color for Spring? Have you jumped on the tangerine bandwagon? 

Cheers to not stressing over undone blog posts, enjoying girl time and of course FRIDAY!!



I am also linking up with these ladies!

The tangerine with the purple color combo is really striking! I have yet to wear tangerine because I think I am way too pale to wear it. Maybe once I have my summer tan, I can invest in some tangerine. :) Have a great weekend, Shanna!

Great set! I like those shoes because there is not SO much white, the heel breaks it up. And I am always a fan of all things Kendra!

I love tangerine but it looks awful on my skin tone. Maybe when I get a little bit of tan I can rock it.
My favorite color for this spring is indigo blue. I think I'm obsessed with that color. Literally can't get enough of it.



Also thank you for commenting on my blog. I really appreciate it.
Lots of Love

Yes to tangerine, in fruit and in color. I'm partial to coral these days but I love the pop of the oranges and tangerine colors.
