Orange with Pink

Oh, yes it is shorts weather here in southern CA. Just when we thought we were getting close to fall weather we have a heat wave that will bring summer back this coming week.
Saw this unusual color combination in a Magazine (see photo below):

Not that I was super crazy about it but since I had items in both of these colors thought it would be a cool experiment to pair them. I think it would have been better if I had a brown cardigan instead to anchor these colors. This thin faded gold shrug is another super old item, so is the dusty pink camisole. The orange shorts were a F21 purchase 3.5 years ago. I seem to always find different ways to wear them every summer.  The outfit would have looked killer with my mom's thick strappy brown sandals I wore all summer in Turkey but without access to them and with kids these suede ballet flats will have to do. Wore a very subtle goold necklace but a bold burnished cuff bracelet. Oh, got to wear the gold and rhinestone anklet since finally I am wearing a non 'ankle cuff' shoe.

These two shots look identical but they are slightly different...

Today's Activities: Forced son to go back to bed after his 6:30 AM wake-up call and managed to sleep until 7:40 AM which as many parents will know is considered 'sleeping in'. After showers and getting dressed we headed straight to my mom's for a family breakfast. Kids love going there cause there is an abundance of bacon which I never cook myself at home. They ate heartily and played inside and out. My stepdad took them for bike rides and to a park. We even stayed for a quick lunch (poor mom) before heading home for naps. When they woke up went to my good friend's son's 1st BDay party. It was outside (the weather was perfect) and they hired that kid band we always watch as entertainment. Kids had fun running around and dancing and playing. Since it was a pretty late afternoon party the food we had there counted as dinner so came home pretty late just enough time for baths and bed time. Than did loads and loads of laundry and helped my husband pack. He is leaving for India (for work) for 3 weeks!!!!

  4. Pink and orange is a big favourite around here especially for ethnic outfits. Howerver, have never tried it in a casual combo, looks good.

  5. Wow, nice combo. Looks great on you! Those two bright colours go nicely together! I heard pink and red are a great combo too but I don't have any bright pink clothes anyway....
