Name that Hue

I just came across a folder on my computer that had a bunch of forgotten photos from this fall. So even though its not Throwback Thursday, we’re taking it back a few months with this post… Maybe we can make “Wayback Wednesday” a thing?!

I was trying to think of a post title when I realized there really isn’t a “pretty sounding” name for this brownish-orange color… burnt orange, rust, mahogany, terracotta, deep carrot, dark pumpkin, tawny brown… All gross. Obsessed with the color, hate all of the names.

      Oooh, good one! For whatever reason, I normally only think of cognac when it comes to leather-y textures, but it definitely works for this sweater. 🙂

    I’ve seen this color called apple cider. (0r just cider.) I also like the sound of cinnamon as mentioned by another poster.
    But I might also describe that color as bronze or copper.
    Loving the shoes!

    How do we feel about “Sienna” ?! It’s one of my favorites. So rich without being too dark! It also pairs do well with dark denim. You look great!

    New or old, loving this simple daytime look! And even though it was shot month ago who cares, it’s still freezing and this look still totally works!

    Love this outfit combo!! Hmmm, I want to say cognac but it seems a little spicer than that. I want to say “Regal Bronze”.
