March 29, 2018 – Orange You Glad… (OOTD #257)

…I didn’t say “orange?”

Was that knock-knock joke as much a part of everyone else’s childhood as it was mine? I’m pretty sure I laughed for hours the first time I heard it — and every time I told it to someone else. My poor parents, they probably heard it over and over again for years, but they still tolerate me.

I’ve been making an effort to wear more outfits with strong color palettes lately to complement my new Instagram posting schedule that forms a rainbow effect, and this orange outfit is a part of that effort.

The tricky part of these new color-themed photos is not so much forming outfits that follow a color scheme (though I have been struggling a bit with purple — for some reason I just don’t own much of it, but in finding a background that also follows that color scheme.  As you might know, I’m a bit limited in the colors I can find on Notre Dame’s campus, especially in the winter when all is grey and the ground’s covered in dirty snow half the time. That’s part of the reason why I’m so eager for spring to get here already — I want to take advantage of the colors of some of the beautiful flowers that bloom!

Sometimes though, I’ll find patches of color in unexpected places — like this collection of prints that are currently on display in the Riley art building. I don’t know what class they’re a part of, and I don’t know what they’re supposed to mean (though I think it may have to do with PSAs?), but they had a nice orange theme going on, so I jumped on the opportunity to get some shots when the building cleared out for the night.

I wonder if I’ll find any more hidden bits of color in Notre Dame’s various buildings while I’m here. Exploring empty classrooms at night has become like a new hobby for me, though it can be a bit isolating and creepy. One of these days I wonder if I might bump into the ghost of Father Sorin or something strange like that.

That’s it for today. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame! Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!
