Fall is here and it's time to bring out the favorite sweaters, worn-in jeans and funky accessories. Each year, I eagerly await the fall styles to appear at Old Navy and Kohl's.
This year, I'm having trouble finding anything orange. Is orange out because Halloween is near? Are we afraid to look like the Great Pumpkin? I understand that fear, but come on, I just want one somewhat orange piece!
So far I've found these:
The shawl-collar sweater in "sweet pollen".
The v-neck cardigan in "oxygen".
The twin set sweater in "rosemary green".
The wool v-neck in "regal teal".
A striped pleat skirt, not really orange.
This hideous thing has some orange in it.
My husband could wear that. Ha. ha.
Alas. After several hours of online non-shopping. I haven't found a single thing that is orange that looks decent. If I want to celebrate the color of pumpkins, candied orange slices and my favorite drink (duh...screwdrivers!) I'll have to settle for this little number (and start rooting for the Detroit Tigers):
Yuck. No Brewer's fan would be caught dead in that.
Looks like I'll be wearing a lot of black this year. I've found an abundance of clothing in that color.
