With Halloween just a few days away, it feels like the perfect time to pay tribute to the quintessential color of this time of year: orange. I’m admittedly picky when it comes to orange. It has to be the right shade, and how I define “right” depends on the object. For example, I’m quite fond of muted oranges and rust tones in my clothing and accessories, but likely wouldn’t wear a dramatically bright or neon orange unless it was just a pop. The same goes for home decor and other non-wearable items, although I do love a nice vibrant orange when it comes to mid-century vintage pieces (my most prized piece of kitchenware is an orange Pyrex daisy bowl that was my mother’s). Regardless of shade, there’s no denying that orange is October’s official color. The items above represent some of my current favorites.
It’s Friday you guys! I’m spending the rest of the morning tying up work stuff for the week, and then I’m taking a short road trip up to Milwaukee to meet Robbie and the band for their two-night Halloween run. Each year, in a different city, they play two shows in a row the weekend before Halloween. The second night is always quite the event. The entire evening is a mash-up theme, so they play mash-ups of different songs, and the band, crew, family, friends and fans wear mashed-up costumes. I’m not going to reveal my costume yet, but I’ll post some pictures on Twitter and Instagram (user name bubbyandbean) tomorrow before the show.
What are your plans this weekend? And what about orange? Love it or leave it?
