Outfit Post: Orange Inspiration

My darling friend Kari featured orange on her blog this week. Which inspired me to take these pictures:

This outfit is brought to you by Thrift Town - well mostly. The corduroy skirt was a Thrift Town find, probably around $3, along with the sweater, 99 cents. I love how tight the sweater fits on my waist and bust but how large the sleeves are. It's a great play on proportion and works wonderfully with a tight skirt.
The boots are my newest score from YSJ Vintage. I love YSJ, it's clean, organized, open and filled with beautiful beautiful things. If you don't live in Sacramento, they have an Etsy store!
I also picked up that long pearl-chain necklace at YSJ.
The chair was left behind in our apartment by the ex-tenant. He left a bunch of stuff, including an antique ash-tray and some random art. We're moving now, and I'm trying to decide if the orange is really my style. I think it might be. Unfortunately, it's a terribly uncomfortable chair to actually sit in.
My husband took these photos and he did a fabulous job, i'm very pleased.
I wore this look to a party and while many of the other girls were wearing silvery-sparkly-tight numbers, I felt comfortable in my orange and navy get-up. I felt a little sassy, unpretentious and ready for a good time.

In events news tonight the Sacramento Flyers are hosting an art ride! Also I going to be in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Old Sacramento, riding for Practical Cycle! I'm very excited. We get to wear adorable green Marty May shirts.
