color my moment: tangerine tango

I'm not a huge fan of orange.

It may have something to do with the fact that it's the main color of this team. Boo.

But also because orange doesn't necessarily represent many good things. I mean, prison jumpsuits, traffic cones, reflective vests...

But this year's Pantone's Color of the Year for 2012 - is Tangerine Tango. It's a gorgeous shade of coral-y orange. It's such a wonderful color for spring and summer. Here are some pretty Tangerine Tango-ish pieces.

Even if you're unsure of wearing Tangerine Tango in a large wardrobe piece (like pants or a dress), you can totally rock it in an accessory or two. Think earrings and shoes or a big statement necklace...or even Tangerine Tango nails/toes.

 What are your thoughts on this color? Yay or nay?


  1. Coral! I actually just recently Googled this color as I was researching ideas for Brandy's book cover art. I have no idea how I knew to call it coral (this is the color that comes up when I type that in, bytheway), but it's a lot classier than orange, I think.

  2. I don't usually like orange either. At my old church we had an event where we all wore these pumpkin orange t-shirts and I swear I looked like a zombie in that shirt!
    I am loving all the Tangerine Tango though! I have the skirt, of course, the toes, and, just yesterday I got a bracelet at Dress Barn too :)
    Thanks to your blog, and a few others, I am trying lots of new things in fashion and I am loving it! Even better, my husband has told me severl times recently that he is loving it too :)

  3. the only thing I hate about this color is that it is so trendy right now!

  4. I looove this color. So fun and springy.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
