Friday Favorites: Orange

orange.jpg(Warning: Sports fueled post follows, yes, even girly girls obsessed with fashion and beauty can be crazy sports fans!) So orange is not really my favorite color but my reasoning is that my Phoenix Suns are so stinkin’ good this season that I now embrace this color with glee! Not since the championship of 1993 has Phoenix had such sports fever. I mean, the amazing Insight Bowl, the nail biting Fiesta Bowl and the upcoming BCS Championship were all in my hometown this year; and I’m hearing rumors that Randy Johnson is on his way back to the Diamondbacks! But to top it all off the Suns are on their way to the most amazing basketball season ever! It is a much needed positive turn after enduring another disappointing AZ Cardinals season and my beloved ASU Sundevils mediocre year. However, one thing I don’t love about sports is most of the team gear. I am not a fan of women wearing hugely oversized, cut for a guy tees and sweatshirts, sometimes it just comes off too sloppy! And simply because I am watching sports and maybe enjoying a frosty beverage doesn’t mean I have to look like a burly man. So either I’m forced to find a top that fits a little better or buy some of the cutesy girl tops, which there really isn’t a huge selection to choose from in the first place. My solution during times of sports fashion emergency is to just buy clothing in my teams colors, then I can still look put together but full of spirit at the same time! Like this Alpaca crewneck at Banana Republic is over $20 off and is very soft, lightweight and comes in honeydew (looks like Suns orange to me!) Complete it with some dark rinse jeans, a Suns baseball cap and maybe even some purple and orange beads around my neck and I’m good to go! Eyes on the Prize Suns!

    I love orange because it reminds me of Hermes, and I adore all things Hermes!

    Lovely day to you.
