Orange, Brown & Nude.

I always think of ORANGE as a happy, sunny, make-me-feel-good color and this lovely dress is a vivid, tangerine-bright shade of orange. Plus it is a sweater dress and most sweater dresses are black gray, beige or brown (not this one). I love the fact that it is sleeveless because it is a real light knit which makes it perfect for Spring or Fall. Also you can layer a cute top/shirt underneath it and totally change up the look of the dress. Last but not least I love the cowl-neck.

As you can tell from the background of the photos, these ones are taken inside the Bookstore where I manage at. I love the colorful books, magazines and pretty covers behind me. I love being surrounded by books. There is something so cultural, worthy and learning about them. I might not have time (even if the day had 100 hours) to read all of them, but I do appreciate them and I can flip through many of them. This way I learn more about a particular book as well as its author, etc. It is after all part of my job. =)

I hope you all had a lovely Saturday thus far. I only had a mini-celebration at work yesterday for my birthday. We plan to do it up the right away tomorrow, by the beach. I plan on finding a good seafood restaurant right by the sea where we will eat good food and drink great wine. Ohh and Happy Birthday to My Husband as he celebrates a birthdate tomorrow!! =)

  1. What a beautiful orange dress Ada.
    For some reason I don't have many orange items - i think it is because i always end up pairing it up with black and it reminds me of Halloween.
    But I DO LOVE IT with nude. Great look.

  2. Orange with nude looks great together. Also orange and beige or camel. Also orange and pink is one of my favorite color combinations. I never owned a ton of orange either, but I added 3 orange dresses and 2 orange tops to my wardrobe just the last 8 months or so. =) This is one of them.
