You won’t see a whole lot of orange on A Pinch of Lovely, but you might see it in small doses as in today’s post. For whatever reason, the color orange and I do not go well together – I’ve talked about this before. It’s really the one color that just doesn’t work well with my hair, my skin, pretty much everything. I get jealous of brunettes who can wear this color so effortlessly. Nevertheless, I was managed to give it a try and incorporate it into today’s post in the form of this patterned dress and bright purse.

The Red Dress Boutique dress works for me because the orange is broken up into pattern and the real focal point of it is in the SLEEVES. Y’all know I love a good sleeve! These bell sleeves are a total hippie throwback for me, and I did feel a little festival-like. I also felt like it was truly the autumnal season. I mean orange is the color of leaves, pumpkins, candy corn… pumpkin pie. For the first time, I got very excited about October and November.

And also for the first time, I slipped on a pair of boots. I’ve been wearing ankle booties for the past couple of weeks, but once you put on those first pair of knee boots, you’re finally serious about fall. It’s hard to be serious about fall in Louisiana because it was almost 90 degrees yesterday, but I’m going to wear my boots with skirts and dresses and not give a single care. Seen here the Dr. Scholls Melrose Tall boot which means I don’t have to worry about my feet throbbing after 30 minutes of wear time. Who knew Dr. Scholls was making anything but wooden slip-ons and shoe insoles? Well they totally are, and if you check back next week, you’ll discover another fresh pair of their soles + a giveaway! And if that isn’t enough incentive… I’ll also be giving away this French Connection purse on Instagram in the next weeks. Be sure you’re following along to see how to enter! @apinchoflovely
