Orange & Blue




Dress (Mercer & Madison find:TJMaxx); Scarf (JCPenney); Shoes (BCBG find: TJMaxx)
Earrings (Nordstrom); Simple Impressions Photography

I typically avoid combining orange and blue, since it's the team colors of the Chicago Bears.  However, I'm trying to rise above my fanatic dedication to the Green Bay Packers and think with my fashion brain instead of my football brain.... and so far so good (no hives or disfiguring side effects as of yet).  These bold shades really are great together - plus this look showcases my maturity in that I'm so easily able to wear my rival's colors...
PS. Packers rule and Bears drool ;)

That's a fantastic combination of colors! I especially love the aqua detail on the bottom of the skirt. Beautiful!

It is a great color combo. You can always think of it as NY Mets colors...because who really hates the Mets?

Such a pretty colorblocked dress! I'm with Tara on the Mets colors, but that's probably because we're both in Jersey :)

Haha! I feel this way about wearing my high school colors- maroon and gold. I just feel like I am a "Bobcat" again when I put them on!

Your dress is so pretty! The blue with the blocked cream color is really nice. I don't follow football all that much so blue and orange don't click together for me but I really like it on you.

Ashley said...

Loving the colors on that dress.

Oh PS I'm a Vikings fan and a Georgia Bulldogs fan so orange and blue make me cringe (Bears & Gators) usually...but I think in the off-season it's totally okay! :)

gorgeous, i love that dres

Trust me, the Bears don't want you to wear their colors either. Bears fans don't wear dresses.....only Packer fans would do such a thing.

i like the pop of orange against the blue !

Love the dress and LOVE the scarf with it! I am more of a basketball fan (but I do love f-ball too) and think I don't wear much red because it's a rival teams colors. I'm glad someone else gets it!
