For today's outfit of the day, I felt inspired by the ever-present marine layer here in San Diego. The marine layer (affectionately called "May Gray" and "June Gloom") makes the skies all gray and hazy. Usually it only lasts in the morning but it's known to stay all day.
It was especially gray this morning so I wanted to brighten things up with a pop (or two) of color. Last monday, I did it with pink; a few weeks ago, I added some yellow, and today I was feeling orange. I missed my weekly spray tan appointment last week (yes, I spray tan and am proud of it!), and orange seems to work well with my skin tone sans the glorious mystic tan glow.
So I went with blues and oranges for the day...

I was really excited to wear a few pieces of jewelry I got from my favorite new local jewelry & accessories boutique - Style Studio SD. Style Studio is run by two of my most favorite friends, Katherine and Liz. Kat and Liz just opened their home & web-based boutique a few months ago and I recently went to one of their shopping parties and spent WAY too much money. But I am in love with everything I got, so it was worth it! Style Studio will be launching their website soon so in the meantime, check out some of their awesome items on their Facebook page and drop them a line. Make sure to tell them I sent you! :)
Oh and before I go, here's a pic of my Monday orange and gold arm party - (doesn't my office floor make you dizzy?) **I'm still working on getting that camera to start taking real outfit pictures but this iphone + cameraplus image will have to do for now!

How do you feel about wearing orange? Is it a trendy color for you or a staple?
