OOTD :: of orchids, silver slippers, and complimentary colors





I love these kinds of challenges. I really do. Because there’s nothing quite as inspiring as nature.

I’ve done dressing like a tree here, here and here. So now, thanks to more madness from Anne @ SpyGirl, we have Orchid Awesomeness.

Now, I don’t think she meant the flower literally, per se. I think she may have had the color in mind (it is one of the Pantone colors of the year, after all). But you know me, Literal Lucy. At least, when it comes to challenges anyway. So off to Pinterest I went and I found these stunning photos of orchids and decided to go forth and create.

I chose three completely different orchids for your viewing pleasure this week so you wouldn’t get thoroughly bored with the same old pink and white variety. Today, I’ve chosen the most vibrant of the bunch in honor of Patti’s Vis Monday linkup, but I hope you stay tuned for the rest of the lovelies (the flowers, not necessarily my outfits) for the rest of the week.

      Thank you, m’dear. Nature is a miracle worker. I was all set to cull this sweater too but now it’s found a new lease on life.

    That’s a stunning color combination! I can’t imagine a human coming up with it, but Mother Nature isn’t timid. How are you going to top this?

    • mtsedwards says:

      I’m probably not going to be able to top the vividness but hopefully I can equal the accuracy with my next iterations.

  5. Patti says:

    What a gorgeous interpretation of the challenge – you cannot beat mother nature for beautiful combinations. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday! xox
