author’s note – I’m working from Florida, on my laptop. Any drop in the quality/resolution of images is a result of that – I apologize profusely! It’s quite the change from working on the monster monitor that I have in Chicago… If you see anything egregiously in need of repair, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Love, Janice
Marigolds! So bright. So cheery. Such a nice step into fall… I’m a little bit stunned that someone would use them in a fragrance, but I’m not a “nose,” so I might easily be missing something, eh?
Many of us might find this a tough color to wear, but remember that you don’t necessarily have to have a ton of bright orange/gold in your outfit to pay homage to the flower, or the color itself!
Let’s see how it might work; you might not think of this as a color that you would wear with black, but it could be just the ticket to stand out in a crowd of formal-wear blackness:
Orange/gold with olive is a really nice touch – it’s just enough brightness and warmth to bring an autumnal touch to your outfit:
Maybe you have citrine earrings that you wish to wear more frequently? Add a perfect scarf and your navy outfit takes on a whole new look:
If I had to pick a neutral with which I thought marigold would be perfect, it would have to be brown! This just screams “fall’s here!” to me:
Conversely, if I had to pick a color that would be really difficult to wear with this warm gold, it would have been grey. But once I found this scarf, everything came together pretty well (I think?):
And if you want to wear a lighter beige into the cooler weather, the warmth of marigolds helps give the look more of a fall feeling:
Are you at all tempted? I’m not going to wearing anything this color, but I would certainly be happy to see it out and about on other women! I think it’s striking, uncommon, and could be very flattering on the right woman.
