A little orange obsession

So, I have a new obsession.  Well, it isn't really a "new" obsession, but rather a newly obsessed about obsession that I already liked, but maybe didn't really consciously know I liked...  ORANGE!

I love orange.

Now, I've always loved orange.

Oranges, orange juice, Tang, tangerines, tangelos, blood oranges, orange-flavored popsicles, lollipops, Starbursts, Skittles, tic-tacs, etc.

I love the taste of orange.

When I reached the age where I could legally consume alcohol, one of my favorite drinks became the Mimosa.  I mean, there can't be anything better than bubbles and oranges!  Seriously - so yum.

Aside from my food-based obsession with oranges, I always kind of somewhat liked the color orange, but for some reason never brought orange into my life with clothing, shoes, or decorating.  Now, however, I seem to be drawn to all things orange.

I recently went shopping with an amazing stylist at Nordstrom, and she talked me into getting a pretty bright orange cardigan.  I was a little skeptical of it to begin with, but very quickly fell in love with it.  And, I find that it is surprisingly versatile too!

Everywhere I look, I see orange!

Love these adorable orange birdie tea-light holders.  $7.95 at CB2

These orange metal stacking paper trays are just the right pop of color for an office.  $12.99 each at Container Store.
Love these orange trays.  16"x16" square.  $39.95 at CB2
These little laquered boxes are so cute to store any number of things (large or small) in.  Prices range from $6.99 to $17.99 each at the Container Store.

This zig zag rug is adorable.  Available in several colors.  Prices range from $49 to $199 at Urban Outfitters.

I love animal things.  And, now I love orange animal things.  Like this goldfish pillow.  So cute.  West Elm.  On sale right now for $24.99

This rug is also super cute.  The pattern is a little more subtle than the zig zags, but still a fun addition to any room.  Love layering textures and patterns!  West Elm.  $49 to $699 depending on size.

If you are into stripes, check this little orange cutie out.  West Elm also, $19 to $299 depending on size.

Need a little side table or spare seating? How about this little orange stunner?  West Elm.  $129. 

Want some orange that you can wear?  I know I do.

Alice+Olivia flats.
On sale now at Nordstrom
 A super cute embroidered dress.
Love this sequin tank top.

  I have this tank in Aqua, and am about to order in Orange.

The possibilities with orange are endless - there are so many shades and textures, there is something orange for everyone!

What orange tickles your fancy?

Until next time, bask in the loveliness of orange.
