Orange is probably my least favorite color, but when I saw that Modcloth had my favorite skirt in other colors I had to get every single one, including this orange one. I’m really glad that I did too, because as it turns out I really like this color on me. It just goes to show that you have to be open to trying new things, because you never really know if you’ll like it unless you give it a try. I really love the midi skirt trend, it feels very 1950s to me. I have tried countless other midi skirts and this one has been my favorite by far. Some of them tend to be pretty pouffy and well, my pear shaped figure has enough pouf ;). This skirt has just the right amount of volume while still being flattering. There is still a mustard colored one that I have yet to get, but don’t worry, I’ll get you my pretty ;).

Aaron and I went to our local park again to take pictures and we saw the sweetest little frog (you can see him in the last picture). I really wanted to bring him home with us, but Aaron didn’t think he would be too happy. He’s probably right, but he sure was cute :).

I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend! It’s extra special for us, because our fur babies, Brutus & Diesel, turn 3 on Monday. And yes, I’m one of those people who celebrate their dogs’ birthdays ;).

    I’ve been eyeing a mustard one just like that too, I think it was on Ruche but I swear they and ModCloth carry a lot of the same exact items.

      Thanks, Ashley! I think I will start wearing a lot more orange. It’s perfect for fall too ;).

  • Love that skirt on you! I’d be purchasing it in every color as well ;). I too celebrate my dog’s “birthdays”. Since they’re adopted and we have no idea how old they are, we celebrate on the day they became a part of our family.

    • Truly, Tamara

      Aww thank you so much, Ashley! Dogs are definitely part of the family too. It sounds and looks like we might have a lot in common ;). Your blog and style are adorable. Thank you for stopping by!

    • Truly, Tamara

      Aww thank you so much, Rebecca! That is such a sweet compliment! I do love Mad Men ;).
