Color Explosion

I'm sick of drab winter, I am ready for color.... maybe some of you are, too.  Below is a great outfit for a dinner out or a day at work, the cream sweater makes it more work appropriate, but the shirt itself would be good for drinks after work or a nice dinner out.  I found this beautiful orange top at J.Crew - the detailing at the top is a fusion between flowers and ruffles - perfectly romantic.  It is a bit of a splurge item, but the top could go throughout the seasons and from office to night out - when a piece is versatile, it is worth the extra money.  I like the muted tones for the rest of the outfit, and then for a complementary pop of color I found this goooooooooooorg navy bag.  If you're not a nerd like me, you might not know that orange and blue are opposite on the color wheel... which is why these two colors work well together.  Also, the blue is a little less in your face than the orange satin top, so they don't fight for the attention of the eye, they just play off of each other for a very put-together chic look.
