outfit of the day: melon orange and carnation pink

Do you ever put two colors together that just make you want to sing? And then actually start singing in your closet because you love your outfit so much? No, just me?

I love this dress. I’ve worn it before on here. I really love it with pink. Orange and pink together is one of my favorite color combos, and one I think, given the right shades of each, most people can pull off.

I’ve had this sweater for forever. It actually doesn’t fit anymore, but I wear it open and no one can tell. I got it on super sale, and I refuse to part with it – for one, the bead work is amazing and the colors look so pretty together. This better might be the last day to wear really summery clothes, so I’m making the most of it!

Dress, LOFT

Sweater, Express
Flats, Talbots

Photos are extra sucky today because I was on a mission during lunch to get some Missoni for Target stuff and didn’t have my usual editing time. I hope you’ll forgive me. The Missoni collection is adorable – I got these amazing flats!

  1. I’m so jealous that you can rock the pink/orange combo! Looks so wonderfully springtime and the colors are so refreshing. There’s no Target in all of Vermont so I didn’t have to worry about the Missoni craze hitting. I like the flats you chose, sometimes the Missoni pattern makes me a bit err… dizzy.

    • I think you could totally rock it!! What if you did pink on top and orange on bottom? You could even do a pale or a really really bright orange, something that is a different shade than your hair? I’m assuming that’s why you say you can’t wear that color! :) So not true!

  2. really love the combo of colors here – so feminine!!

  3. My Target was all sold out of the Missoni flats when I got there. They sure are cute!

    • Oh no! I bet they’ll get them back in. And you know as soon as people start returning the pieces and Target gets their server act together, target.com will have more availability online.

  4. You look great, Catherine! Closing the summer in style!
    Can you recommend a close color combination for a nerdy brunette with olive skin?

  5. I also love that color combination together! I have a few cardigans in my closet that no longer fit, but I refuse to part with them as well!

  6. PRETTY! those colors are so yummy together. I wish canada had access to the missoni for target collection :( guess I’ll have to road trip!!

    • Thank you!! And I cannot believe Canada doesn’t have Target. That is just wrong. I saw their site was back up last night but sooo much was sold out. I guarantee it will come back in stock though.

  7. Yes, that is a cute sweater, understandable that you don’t want to give it up!
