Orange! The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

collage The good Buy/Good-Bye Book

And the theme is Orange! Such a wonderful color to wear this season. If these outfits don’t cheer you up, nothing else will!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Orange!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the EdgeOrange tights

 

I freaking love my orange tights from Sock Dreams! Such a great buy. And I was worried that I wouldn’t have many occasions to wear this color on my legs, but they are so fun that I wear them quite often.

Here we have Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Styleorange cardigan

I’m sending over a photo of my orange sweater that I knitted many years ago!!  It’s on Instagram here

This is Laura of I do deClaireOrange sandals

These orange sandals were a good buy! I love the fun pop of color they add to my summer outfits!

Here is Kellyann of This Blondes Shopping BagFashion bloggers in Orange

My orange pants that were definitely a good buy! Love them more than I ever thought I would and they pair so nicely with other colors!

Grace of Graceful RagsA monthly series by fashionbloggers

This orange skirt was a great buy because even though I bought it for a vacation back in 2012, I still love it just as much today. It makes the perfect date night outfit with a black mock-neck top and edgy heels, but it would look just as good dressed down with a pair of sandals.

I love all of my oranges, especially the citrus bright cardigan that shows up in a few of these photos.  (I got it at a consignment store, too!). Hope you’re having a great week!

This is Jacqui of Mumma B Stylishoutfitinspiration by fashion bloggers

The cold shoulder top is from Matalan and is so versatile, it’s a slinky fabric that looks good with jeans, skirts and these wide leg trousers.

Here we have Mireille of Chez MireilleOrange top

The top which i recently featured in a blog post is an old buy from Old navy. Since it is very flowy, i usually either knot it or pair it with fitted bottoms. I love the pop of color! Orange is fun!

This is Anne of SpyGirlorange outfit

This one was a Good Buy, it’s an Indian skirt that I turned into a pinafore.

 

Here we have Michelle of My Bijou Lifebloggers series

This top is one of my orange good buys. It came from Poshmark. It’s light and airy for summer and I love the color.

Here is Michele of seechele_stylesorange tanktop

Good buy this coral tank.

And finally my splash of orange!Orange and red

I love orange with red and orange with pink. This top looks so vibrant, just a bit of sun in a outfit. It’s a old one but lately I only think of it as a Good Buy!

Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.

I would love it if you could follow me on Instagram!

This is where I linkup!

Augusts theme will be: Metallics!

    Orange is my favorite warm color, and at times can be difficult to find. I love seeing everyone’s orange items altogether. So much fun! Pinning!

    Can orange ever be a goodbye, I wonder. Judging from all the orange loveliness you and your fellow bloggers are showing us here – all good buys! – it cannot! Loved all the orange on a grey day, on which the sun did another disappearing act on us! xxx

    Was so sad not to get into this line up. I am sorry I sent my outfit late. Will try to get better on top of things for August. LOVED this theme. Orange. Who knew? I think one of my first orange pieces was an oxford cloth button down that had an embroidered patch about reading that I bought at a library conference. Not sure what prompted me to buy orange but I had many compliments when I wore that shirt. Probably need to work more orange into my closet.

    I love everyone’s looks. Orange is a color that has a kind neutral quality to it. Looks good with so many colors. And denim!

    Going to start thinking about metallics for August!! XO
