Changing Colors of the Seasons: The Oranges of Summer

To me, each season is filled with its own colorful wonders. Fall is filled with the colors of change & falling leaves. Winter is cold & filled with blues & grays, even black. Spring is soft, a different kind of change, gentle colors that transition from the cool colors of winter. Summer is sunshine & warmth, the opposite of winter. Orange is one of these summer colors. I love it's intense heat & the brightness that it brings. It's one of my favorite colors! What about you? What colors do you associate with the changing seasons?

Here are a few things, from some of my favorite shops, featuring my new favorite color of summer & beyond: orange.

Confession: I am completely intimidated by bold colors (which is totally ironic given my post today!), but I do love seeing them. Orange is just a little bit dangerous- part of why I love it!
