The 'It' Color

Sweater, shoes, bag: thrifted. Chambray: my mom's. Jeans: Old Navy. Belt: J.Crew via gift. 
Necklace: Charlotte Russe (similar here)Sunglasses: F21. Watch: my grandpa's. 

Once again, another outfit from the cool spell.

So if you haven't heard, Pantone named 2012's Color of the Year to be Tangerine Tango, much to my dismay; not because I don't like orange, but rather because this is the second year in a row (last year's was honeysuckle) that the color does horrible things to my skin tone.  I have very orange undertones, so bright pinks and oranges make me look the color of an oompa loompa.  Not so flattering.  However, when I found this necklace a few weeks ago, I decided that it couldn't hurt to try this years 'it' color in a small dose.  I'm so happy I took the leap, because I am in love with this necklace.  I'm definitely going to get good use out of it. 

Also, I'm really liking my thrifted leather backpack lately.  It's so effortless and super roomy.  Amber thought I looked a little ridiculous and made me sing the backpack song from Dora the Explorer before she took any pictures of it.  Obviously, I obliged.  Anyone have thoughts on backpack purses?  Could you love 'um or leave 'um?
