I heart orange
Maybe it is age. I'm not sure. As I get older I am drawn to more vibrant colors. My current favorite is orange. I love it. I love orange flowers, orange clothes, orange food, everything orange. Everyday when I get home I changed clothes and put on a pair of orange Crocs. Yesterday I had a matching orange shirt on. And I wore an orange hat during field work. On Tuesday I ordered a flaming orange halter swim top from Lands End which I will wear on vacation while kayaking in my orange Crocs. I hope they have an orange kayak.
After years of wearing a lot of black and brown, it feels strange to me to be drawn to these vibrant colors. I even have started liking bright spring green. How cool will my orange halter swimsuit look with a pair of lime green swim shorts? Or a poppy red swim bottom? I keep thinking of that Sandra Martz book about being an old woman and wearing purple. I can totally see it happening.
