See this new business casual look with my fav skirt

One color got promoted from accessory to full on clothing

I had orange accessories as long as I can think back. And yes, I also had some clothing that had spots or should I say pop in this strong, bold color. I don’t know exactly why, but I never had bought a piece that was a full on solid in this hue. When I spotted this skirt I knew immediately that I wanted to have it. However, it took me about six weeks until I finally hit Check Out. During these six weeks, the clothing piece again and again popped up in my mind like from somewhere in the middle of nowwhere. Like Russell in Independence Day when he shouts out at the Aliens “Im back.”

Never buy a piece of clothing when you don't have already three outfits from your closet with it in mind. #frugalshopper Click To Tweet

Of course, I had already three pieces in my wardrobe in mind that I thought would work with this cirtus fruit color. However, when I bought this skirt I didn’t expect to wear it that often. It had been my go-to this winter. See how I wore these leopard boots and the skirt in fall, how I wore the skirt with the patterned tight trend, and how to make an entrance with an orange skirt, just to give you some examples.

May be it’s its friendly color. It brightens up even the grayest winter day no matter how short the Sun is up. 😉

Orange skirt and jacket styled as a fake suit

You know I’m a big fan of fake suits. They instantly make a business casual look. Well, brown-orange-leo is a great combo to try.

Which piece of your winter wardrobe was your go-to and fav this winter? Had you expected it to be that way?

I picked Robin Lamonte’s post and her yellow puffer jacket. May be it’s my being Alaskan – I mean it’s still below freezing up here at nights. She had me with the 3/4 sleeves and the bright unusual color. Love that she styled it with light pants and a black sweater. What a great winter to spring transition look.
