Koi

It's Koi day for the Pantone Fall Color Challenge - which as I said yesterday I actually struggled with a bit, but I made it work!  I had a 25% off deal on Cartwheel for one Liz Lange maternity item from Target, so I bought this cute maroon and orange polka dot t-shirt last night - which you totally can't see the polka dots, though I got a close up in a picture further down.  Then I pulled out this fun scarf I picked up at the two birds garage sale last year.  Added a warm sweater from the swap this weekend because it is chilly and it slushed outside this morning and I'm good to go!


I really do love orange hues, I don't know what it is.  I have said time and again it never used to be my favorite color, but in the last two years I've really grown to love it and find myself grabbing more and more of it!  It is definitely perking up a gray day today!

 T-shirt - Liz Lange, Target
Sweater - swap
Pants - Liz Lange, Target 
Scarf - two birds garage sale
Shoes - Steve Madden, thrifted


You still can't see the dots real well when I take off the sweater.  So, I took a looking down at my bump shot and then you can see the dots.  And you can now see what I see when I look down.  I can still see my feet if I lean over the bump a bit more, but to look straight down, they're definitely gone!


What do you think about orange?  What is your favorite color for Fall?

  2. I love that outfit on you! The scarf is so much fun! As you know I LOVE the color orange. And surprisingly enough I don't have a lot of that color in my wardorbe...hmmm I think something might have to change there!

  3. AWWW! I love this! LOVE the bump shot, hehe. I am not a huge fan of orange, but Kyle loves it so I end up having a lot of orange things around. But they make me think of him and that is always nice :)

  4. The polka dots are so cute with the scarf! I don't think I actually own any orange in my wardrobe, believe it or not!

  5. The scarf really does make this outfit so special, I love the pattern of it! The clogs are super fun too and perfect for fall. My favorite fall color is hunter green I think. Green has really grown on me, just as you say orange has grown on you! :)

  9. Nice scarf in the Koi ensemble, Bethie! Ya, been sick. I feel a ton better now. But when I usually get that sick I have to start back slowly or I get slammed again. Ya know that feeling that you are mountains behind so you over compensate? That's where I am now. But I had to come see you. I missed you and your little baby bump. (hug)
