May is one of my favorite months of the year--partly because it signals the return of 
real spring weather and because it holds my birthday :) While I was in NYC this weekend, 
I made my pilgrimage to the Kate Spade store on Mercer Street in SoHo. Gorgeous as always, 
the store was decked out in the color of the month for April: a beautiful spring green. When 
I inquired about the color for the month of May, one of the sales associates quietly 
said orange. I nearly squealed with delight!

Over the years, I have always gravitated toward the color orange {along with cobalt blue 
and yellow, coming in a close second and third respectively}.  I know it may not be a 
favorite of everyone, but this girl loves sporting vibrant orange pieces. In honor of this 
upcoming announcement from Kate Spade, I pulled together a few of my favorite orange 
pieces from across the internet--until their new pieces appear, of course!

So, I'm curious: what is the one color to which you always gravitate?

Can't wait to share some more photos from my NYC weekend, including the fabulous blogger 
meet-up that we had on a perfect sunny day in Central Park! Hang tight--they're coming soon :)
Much love to you all this Monday! xoxo {av}

  1. Always blue, I can never get away for blue no matter how hard I try. I'll go the the store and promise no more blue, and I do it anyway. Luckily I have blue eyes though :) So it all looks good.

  8. In the past it's been green or purple, but I'm loving this shade! When I was in middle school, I wore an bright orange shirt and my grandmother told me I looked like a pumpkin, so I'm so glad that coral is more popular, because that, at least, I can pull off. So cute!

  15. orange is so pretty, but I feel like I can't wear too much of it because of my red hair (I feel like it doesn't mesh well). My go-to color has always been a purple or green!

  26. Lately I've really been finding myself drawn to orange and yellow (mustard yellow, especially). I've never worn those colors before so it's a bit weird. Need to go shopping and get some! I love your orange picks.

  29. It appears as though I'm a big fan of orange myself - because I have pillows, blankets, orange hunters, skinny belt, and other accessories in orange. It's a great color! I always ALWAYS gravitate towards turquoise though, no matter what!

    I'm hosting a cute little giveaway to thank my readers - come chcek it out!

  32. I gravitate towards different shades of purples. It's my favorite. I love it in so many things--although I don't have any shade of purple shoes besides running shoes...I think it would take a special pair.

    ReplyDelete

  37. Ok YOU have an awesome blog! Thanks for your compliment on mine :) That was quite sweet of you.
    Oh + turquoise for me! I'm a lover of all colors though; to me any color is a great color.

    Again, kudos on {LDL} - true quality blogging!

  38. First off, let me tell you how amazing it is to know that you have the same exact car as me, right down to the color. If you love yours, I definitely know I'm going to love mine even more than I already do.

    Second, I love the orange theme. My luck when it comes to finding cute clothes that are orange is extremely low. I love all the outfits you have posted though, too cute!
