HUE DU JOUR: ORANGE

6ec02e8033dd32317f53ab3b9374e391Forgive me for my sudden nationalistic sentiments, but with Holland’s 2:1 defeat of Mexico in the World Cup yesterday, I can’t help feeling this surge of pride for our footballers. Sad as it may seem, having them win feels a bit like winning ourselves, which is of course very good for our sense of patriotism. It is for that reason that I choose to celebrate the color orange today (our royal family goes under the monniker the House of Orange and it’s our national color). Not only does it stand for Dutch harmony, but it’s also just a very chic color that actually features quite heavily in my home and wardrobe. And it’s a big color in fashion this season, so enjoy all that citrussy goodness!
