Remember back in the day when women would swoon over Frank Sinatra singing, “I’ve got a Crush on you Sweetie Pie”?  That’s exactly how we feel about orange outfits and accessories…swoon-worthy!  

Here’s the deal…not only is it a great color for summer but also for fall.  Don’t you think a pair of orange loafers is a fun way to step into fall?  No wonder we’re loving a pair of Tod’s driving shoes.  Wicker totes are ideal for both seasons, and a Lowe’s wicker tote with orange trim is great for seasonal transitioning.

When was the last time you drank an ice-cold Orange Crush?  Just like this delicious beverage, an orange dress looks so refreshing on a hot September day. Planning a trip to the farmer’s market?  Spell & Gypsy’s printed midi dress will give you that effortless farm girl look….just add Birkenstocks or Teva’s!  

Are you looking for a cool new alfresco dining location?  Tinie’s rooftop terrace at 113 S Main Street in Near Southside gives our hometown a LA vibe!  Anthropologie’s tiered maxi dress is a great choice for rooftop dining.  Wear it on or off your shoulders…your choice!  And we think Shop Bop’s polka dot belted midi skirt makes a charming statement.  Wear it with white sneakers and a tee or with sandals and a blouse tied at the waist.  Make that a “Casita Margarita”…please!

Don’t you just love how a kimono dresses up jeans and shorts outfits?  I’m especially loving a printed maxi kimono I recently purchased from Cotton Rose.  It looks adorable with jeans and sandals, and later this fall, I’ll wear it with boots.  Whether you are relaxing on the patio or by the pool, Anthropologie’s orange printed caftan is perfect for a lazy end of summer day.

 Show me an orange accessory, and I’ll show you a chic way to complement your outfit!  Hazen & Co.’s stunning Catalina bracelet pairs perfectly with a Johanna Ortiz pareo or wrap skirt…the ultimate in chicness!  Another way to make a posh statement is with one of Lowe’s two-toned handbags, or a Boho Couture copy….scene stealers, indeed!

So, I have to ask….are you swooning?  And one more question….“orange” you glad it’s almost fall?
