  1. awesome! although the black sunhat may be a bit too witch-like for me. lol. i like the orange and grey. not quite halloween, but still halloween enough to be festive! i think i may wear a dark orange tank on monday with a black sweater and grey skirt. unless i get real ambitious and go out and buy an orange blazer. hmm…

  2. There’s definitely nothing hallow-lame about any of this! Love it! I have a pair of bright orange platforms (bought for a friend’s wedding) that I have been a little nervous to pair with black for this very reason. You prove that you can totally work this color combo!

  3. You nailed it. Black and orange can look fantabulous together until it starts looking “costume-y” as Michael Kors says. Thank you for this post!
