Lately I have been obsessing about orange bags
Now, orange has never been a favourite colour of mine, quite the contrary. It’s one of those colours that I normally avoid (beige, lime green, mustard and most shades of brown also fall into this category). Not because I don’t like them but because they don’t really do me any favours…
But now I find myself thinking that maybe my wardrobe needs a splash of orange for summer… (Actually I did experiment with some softer shades of orange, or coral / peach, last summer, so it’s not a completely new idea). And given how much blue I have in my wardrobe, an orange bag might actually be a good investment. I mean, one bag that goes with at least half of my wardrobe…
Hmm, now I just need to find the right bag. Any suggestions?

Orange is good as an accent color, so a handbag like one of these would be smart. It'd perk up your outfits.
I totally agree: I think I would only ever wear orange as an accent colour. It's not really the best colour for my skin tone.
I 've got the same thing with those colours……..but last weekend I (yes I) bought an orange top!! And I must quite frankly say, it looked to my suprise good! I am so in love with Michael Kors, so you are spoiling me with this post. Have a great day!
I think it depends on the shade of orange, if you find the right shade for your skin tone it will look amazing.
I vote for! Orange is great with blue, of course – and if you find the right shade, it can also be absolutely stunning with your signature fuchsia. To my eye it's best to make sure the orange is not at all pink in tone, to look its best with the fuchsia – but do try out the combination.
You're giving me ideas here… Actually, I just bought a bag in sort of salmon pink / light coral, and I plan to wear it with purple (and with blue, of course).
The Kate Spade one is my absolute favorite!!!!Carriecurlycraftymom.com
It is a cute bag, isn't it?
I think that an orange cross body bag looks nice into a casual blue outfit, particularly with jeans, something comfy & chic!. besos
Oh yes, orange and blue is a great combo, and I love crossbody bags.
