Get It Together With Tangerine Orange

I'm sharing my latest EBW Challenge piece in a slightly different format than usual.  I'm participating in Janet's Get It Together link up and sharing some other accessories and fashion picks that coordinate with my new piece.

The July EBW Challenge is Tangerine Tango for the 2012 Pantone Color of the Year.  This is such an inspired choice!  You can read more about it here.  I'm sure that many of you know how much I love orange.  I put together a bangle design similar to my 80's inspired A Material Girl's True Colors bangle that I created last year.

The sandals pick up on the orange without creating too much of a "matchy" look.  I love the deep red and the unique style.  You can dress these up or down for anything.

I picked a more casual skirt for summer that you can throw on without even thinking about it.  Isn't the little bird cute?

I try to branch out in my features and not pick the same sellers over and over again.  But I had to return to Madelynn's shop and select a set of stacking rings.  The orange bangle is so vivid that you don't need to overwhelm everyone with more orange jewelry.  Instead pair it with some other bright colors.

You have to click through to the listing to see all of the ways that you can style this versatile black wrap.

I continued to mix up the colors for this outfit with a purple necklace from one of my newest favorite shops.

The skirt and wrap will match so many different types of summer tops.  I have a hard time finding tank tops on Etsy that aren't really skimpy so I opted for a simple blue tree t-shirt instead.

I finished this outfit off with a rich green leather messenger bag.  Isn't that a unique piece?

My tangerine bangle is available on Etsy right here.  As always, if you'd like something similar in a different size or color palette, don't hesitate to ask.  Voting for the July EBW challenge starts on July 9.  Check back here then for more details.

Have you ever worked with tangerine materials?  What have you been creating lately?

I included this post in Michelle's Delicately Constructed Friday 6/29/12.


  1. I like the mix of tangerine with green and brown. The bag and the birdy skirt go so well together. Love your bracelet. So fresh and "yummy" :)

  2. Love the tangerine bracelet! I love all your options, color mixing is my favorite and you have put together a nice collection of colors and styles.
    Everyday Inspired

  3. I think I don't like using tangerine colored anything but one of my favorite journal pages is mostly orange. I like how it pops and pretty much sings to me when I see it.

  4. I love the color but I'm getting too old to wear it - it's a "young" color...

  5. I don't think I have anything that is orange but I do love seeing a splash of it. It just seems to make everything happy

  6. Very pretty bracelet! I love the skirt with the bird, and the sandals, -- I had a similar skirt (way) back in the day!!

  7. Your bracelet is so pretty! I wear an orange and black caterpillar bracelet sometimes to go with the hometown college town but I don't usually think of using tangerine colors in anything. I might just have to change that!

  8. This piece is so bright and cheery and perfect for summer! Love that skirt :)

  9. What a fun grouping of items you chose!

  10. Very fun 'outfit'! What a great combo =)

  11. So happy you're participating! (just got blog back up after domain switch so no linky this week - but I'll get one up for next week and you can link this one to it)

    Bracelet - Check!!
    Skirt - check!
    Sandals - check!


  12. I love tangerine, and wear it often with browns, greens and creams. The sandals and your bracelet go well together.
