How To Wear Orange & Not Looking Like A Pumpkin

Happy Friday, y’all! I find myself smiling ear-t0-ear today as I prep for our first-ever “Couplesgiving” — a Thanksgiving-styled dinner we are hosting in our home this Sunday with four of our closest couple friends. I’ve already started setting the table, D’s going to fry a turkey, and every couple is bringing one side and one pie. Yeah, it’s going to be a delicious good time for sure :) and just see until you see what I have planned for the tablescape [I’ll post pictures next week] it’s filled to the brim with some of my favorite fall colors, including orange!

Orange is always such a fun color to decorate with in fall, especially for Thanksgiving, but not so much to wear, well, without at least looking like a pumpkin ;) personally, I have found it wearable over the years as long as you manage to find articles of clothing where it’s the main color mixed with other colors. Sort of like this dress you see me in today!

This bold beauty I acquire while in Seattle this past Spring after my husband urged for me to try it on [have I mentioned that he has great taste?] it simply had to be mine after that with its unique pattern and delightful array of not usually paired together colors. Once I got it home, I knew I wanted to play off the light pink dots for my accessories . . . the only problem was I could not for the life of me find ANY hue-matching shoes. I mean can someone please make me light pink shoes? Preferably in suede. Lol. Thus, I had to go the non-traditional “Jenna” route and landed on this unusual pair by Sam Edelman with their fun, little ball tassels. From there, glasses + flamingo purse and BOOM = another quirkily-perfect outfit for yours truly.

Do you see how the dress’s pattern made me NOT look like a gourd? Haha. It will definitely be a number I wear time and time again. What personal ways have you found orange wearable? I’d love to hear your thoughts :D until next week, have a wonderful weekend! I better get back to getting ready for Couplesgiving. ENJOY!
