This rust orange is a color I hardly ever go for. If given the choice, I almost always choose a true, bright orange (I know you’re not surprised). Today, however, that’s not the case. Maybe it has something to do with the impending Thanksgiving holiday (this is a very Thanksgiving-ish color, no?) – not to mention, the major cold front that blew through last weekend – but I saw this sweater at Intermix and couldn’t resist. (Side note: Intermix is having a sale right now Get on it!) I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well this pumpkin-orange pairs with other hues. It’s an instant uplifter to my gray denim, and it looks good paired with brighter oranges and yellows like in this mini-skirt. It also happens to be one of the softest sweaters I own so that might be one more reason I’m all the sudden cozying up to this color.
