While strolling through the mall last week (specifically for some 2 for $25 and an additional 20% off candles from Bath & Body Works!) we came to an unsightly conclusion: beyond the Autumn fragranced candles at this bath store, Fall was absent from the entire mall! I wanted to swing by the Gap to find a nice orange sweater for the season. About 5 years ago, I purchased an orange pull over identical to this week's color, and it had a bit of brown stitiching in it, and to me, it clearly embodied what Fall was all about. Since then, the sweater has aged and ended up in a donation pile, but I am seeking a new clothing item that can offer that same nostalgia. And to our chagrin, everything in the clothing stores was navy and red. I also noticed a surplus of black, white, grey, and silver tones! But no warm oranges, browns, or golds in sight! It was somewhat of a depressing scene. It was almost as though our local retailers had bypassed our favorite season and jumped right into winter.
This color of the week is dedicated to that very orange that is nowhere in sight! That's the beauty of color- if there's a color you need to be surrounded by in your life, it's simply only a trip to the paint store away!
