Orange. Not the fruit, the color. (While the fruit is fine, they are kind of a PITA to peel. I know. Whaah.)

It's always been one of my favorites. It's sunny, and bright and happy. I started wearing orange when I was a teen. I think my dad bought me my first orange sweater and I was hooked. I wear it well.

I went to the University of Tennessee. Probably so I could wear orange and not be laughed at. Or something like that. Football had nothing to do with it. Maybe.

I am a Denver Broncos fan. Orange Crush. (Although they could use a little more crush lately. That's ok. I'm no fair weather fan. I'm all in, baby.)

I do not fear the orange. I fear that it is underrated.

My husband has a great winter shirt that's orange. My daughter loves it too. Or used to, anyway. You know kids these days. *throws up hands* The boys haven't embraced the orange quite yet, although HB#2 does like the Broncos. There may be hope for him, yet. #1 though? I'm not quite sure.  His current favorites are purple and turquoise. I'll let it go. For now.

So. Orange. How do you feel about it?


Don't like this post? Blame her.

Funny that you went to UT and love orange: I lived in Knoxville for almost six years and I think, BECAUSE of overexposure to it, I have an aversion to orange!

I love both oranges, actually. Also, I find that yellow is highly under-rated!

I love both oranges, too. I just don't wear it because it doesn't look good with my skin tone. Neither does yellow. My husband looks great in it though.

I've totally kept with the orange.

My social dress was orange. :)

I know I don't buy them because they are a PITA to peel! I've done very little in orange but I do love pumpkins.

Frankly, I am not a fan of orange. I love red, true blue red.

Who knew that you had such an affinity for orange? It is my favorite color, Broncos notwithstanding. I read a book long ago where a color was described as "scintillating orange" and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since.

I love wearing orange. I have orange shirts, orange capris, orange crocs...lot of things with orange in them...goes well with brown which I also love to wear. I think that I am a fall colored person...browns, oranges, purples, certain greens!
