I’m out at sea this week, so while I’m cruisin’ around Mexico I’ve got several lovely ladies taking the blogging reins for me. Let them know how much you like their posts by leaving words of wisdom in the comments. See y’all when I get back and sadly no, my pasty white self won’t be bringing back a tan.
Hello all you Slow Southern Style readers! I am Jasmine, from Sequin Crush, a fashion blog about my personal style and my fashion crushes of the moment. I am excited to be sharing this post about my inspiration from the runway to real life looks. One particular recurring trend from the Spring 2012 runways really caught my eye (or made my mouth water) and that is the juicy hues of ORANGE. From lighter, sherbet shades to deep blood orange, and from head to handbag, to toe, orange was everywhere. There are a few ways to recreate these runway looks. Go for a monochromatic look by layering different shades of orange or pair one statement orange piece with neutral shades. If you want to be really bold and make the orange pop even more, mix with the contrasting color of blue. I am not only looking forward to brightening up my wardrobe for spring but also enjoying a nice cold Orange Crush (pun intended) on a warm sunny Spring afternoon in NOLA! But until then, cheers to the short-lived southern winters.
