Ok people, when does it become frowned upon/socially unacceptable to wear my beloved burnt orange on occasions that don't involve tailgates/sporting events?

(This is not a rhetorical question... this is an actual post-college dilemma. Opinions and comments are strongly encouraged. Think Regis Philbin/"Ask the Audience" style, minus the million dollar prize for correct answers).

Reason I'm asking is because recently my office mates have honed in on the fact that I "sure do wear a lot of Texas stuff." And by Texas stuff, I assume they mean burnt orange in general. (No, I'm not rocking a Vince Young mesh jersey with a giant Longhorn emblazoned across the chest). You know -- a scarf here, a crop jacket there, boots on occasion.

I mean, for a solid four years, my closet was a carefully cultivated mecca of burnt orange. Once upon a semester, prized were the shopping finds that incorporated the color. And now, in the face of subtle workplace scrutiny, I'm wondering if half my wardrobe is screaming "I'm so fresh out of college, my cap and gown are still warm!"

  1. You keep rockin' the burnt orange, and heels! I wore high heels my first week (I work at a battered woman's shelter) and got the whole "you can tell it's your first week" spill from several people. I'll have you know 2 1/2 months later I'm STILL dressing up AND I work the night shift from 11pm to 7am and see 1 other employee the whole time. Ha! If you like fashion, there are no limits. The end! :)
