Floral and Orange

I'm always on the lookout for bougainvillea, which is the pinkish red flowering plant that we have just about everywhere here in California! A big, blooming bush of bougainvillea always makes for stunning photos, so you can understand why I seek it out as a backdrop! I have one "go to" spot for bougainvillea, which I thought would be perfect for this adorable floral top but, unfortunately, it was less than spectacular in its bloom when I went to take these photos. Nevertheless, I used it and then found another bougainvillea nearby that was abundant with flowers! I don't know why bougainvilleas in close proximity bloom at different times but my guess is that it might have something to do with the amount of sunlight they receive.  

Another thing I'm always on the lookout for are colorful pants! I love a good pair of brightly colored pants to make an outfit pop! At this point, I think I have all the colors of the rainbow covered, but for years I have been without an orange pair of pants. Luckily, this year, vibrant colors are in vogue, so it was easy to find my perfect pair of orange pants! These pants from Zara are more of a reddish orange, which is the shade I prefer, so I was excited to get them to complete my rainbow collection of pants!

  1. You're in bloom along with the bougainvillea! What a terrific pair of orange pants; I love how they bring out the orange in your top. They also make a great backdrop for your leopard clutch! :)

  2. Oh I LOVE THIS!! The colors, the outfit, the shot. Good job!!
