I know, I know - I missed the year. Tangerine Tango was Pantone's "color of the year" for 2012 and I am just now (again?) using it everywhere. Orange has long been a favorite of mine - since at least middle school - and I see it popping up everywhere in clothing I buy lately.
I'm sure you guys are also sick of seeing my Ikea bookshelf, but too bad! I thought this was a perfect backdrop for my super-70s outfit.
I've has this cardigan for a really long time - I'm talking like, 6 years or so. I bought it at Clothes Optional nearby Clark and Belmont (does that place still exist anymore?) and people remark how they thought it was something current. (The 100% scratchy, 70s polyester gives it away though!)
This cardigan also makes an appearance in photographer Kyle Lamere's "Visitors" book from 2010. Kyle took photos of everyone that came into his apartment during that year (and I was lucky enough to be included in the project!) then made a book out of all of our photos.
Max came home yesterday and was like, "You look sooooo cooool!" I think he's used to seeing me in mostly dresses so he likes when I wear denim.
Max's mom on Saturday was jealous of the watch pendant necklace I have on. She then told a funny story about how she always wanted one but never got one! Aww!
