For October's Color Adventure, we're all about orange on orange on orange! When putting my outfits together, I realized it's a color I rarely wear. It was a fun challenge to create orange-focused outfits that incorporated several shades of the juicy hue. Here's what I came up with...

Flowy and Floral — First up, we have a colorful and cozy outfit! It's a great transitional outfit for going from summer to fall. Since the dress on its own is perfect for warm days, I threw a chunky knit cardigan on top and ta-dah! It's ready for fall. To complete the outfit, I slipped on my favorite hot pink heels, but it would also look great with closed toe mules or booties.

Fall Creamsicle — I love the contrasting tones in this outfit! I chose a silky burnt orange top (that's actually a bodysuit!) and paired it with an apricot wrap skirt. When styling with the same color, picking contrasting hues is typically a good way to go: one light, one dark so they clearly contrast but work together. I went with metallic silver heels as a neutral option that still brought a bit of pizazz to the outfit.

Bold & Retro —  These pants are bit bolder than I would naturally gravitate towards on my own (the orange reminds me of a traffic cone!). BUT, it was fun to try something different and get out of my comfort zone. It's very a retro ensemble, and I loved how everything came together. Since the pants are bright and intense, I paired them with a more airy vintage floral top (look at those amazing sleeves!) and crisp white shoes for contrast.

Matchy Matchy — I don't typically wear totally matching outfits, but how fun is this? It's from the Target 20th Anniversary collection and fits perfectly into this month's orange theme. One great perk about matching ensembles? They make picking your outfit in the morning SUPER easy and looks super put together. All the hard work is done for you ;). To complete the look I slipped on some grey booties perfect for fall!
