COLOUR OF THE YEAR. So I've been wearing bright orange since many years ago, so I declare hipsterdom over whatever Pantone will decide for the 2013 colour of the year as well. Keeping it super simple, since all my traveling this summer has led to no-makeup-wearing, no-accessorizing, simple no-ruffles-no-fluff, barely-can-even-call-them outfits. I would call it minimalistic but that would imply effort and crafting simplicity instead of laziness. For a family dinner with my dad's boss and his wife (hi! I'm super flattered they read my blog) and watching the long-awaited Pacific Time NBC broadcast of the London Olympics opening ceremony today (7/27). I tweeted my thoughts on the outfits during the Parade of Nations but after a while it got harder to keep my eyes glued to both screens at once. Fashion recap post tomorrow!

Thanks Dad for these quick snaps before the sun dipped below the horizon. Forgot my orange faux leather bag in the hurry but it's been a handy gift from JJ's Mom that surprisingly goes with everything. Along with my mithril silver sweater, this is so casual I could sleep in it. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BLOG. The past few days have been cray and hectic (note: cray > hectic in measured chaos) because I'm finally organizing everything for my impending move to start med school. Guys, this is insane. Back to the Midwest in 7 days!! Should I do that big reveal I've been talking about forever now? Okay. I'm going to OHIO STATE Med School and proud to be a Buckeye again. Ohio has always been my home, filled with friends close enough to be family. Rest assured, I will keep blogging because it is the stress outlet I dearly need and cherish. My goal is to become more of a person of ritual and habit than the spontaneous mess I am now, so an hour a day dedicated to you guys is more than possible.

Oh and I'm making my photos public on Flickr again from now on so you can Pin them :) And I'm helllllla tan after Hawaii. These photos don't even do my darkness justice.

Readers - have you worn Pantone's Tangerine Tango yet?

Congratulations on starting medical school soon. Thanks for updating your readers. I've been following you since you were studying for your MCAT. I love the bright color of the skirt and the restraint of the blouse.

You are looking tan and fabulous. Mature, in a great way! Love the color and the touch of sparkle. I unfortunately don't wear much bold color but easing my into it by wearing prints.
