 Green and blue, too good to be true? (Sadly, a syllable too many in the second half I think, but not a bad rhyme or phrase. I never did have the patience for poetry...)   Anyway, lots of blue today, by way of overreaction following my challenge fit from yesterday... 
Gonna stick this one in here, unless I think of something better later in the week...  
 I'm an inquisitive person by nature, so couldn't resist looking the etymology up (http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/burnt-orange). Burning in this case refers using a thermal calcination process to alter the colour of a pigment through burning it with lime (no, not more fruits, the mineral!).

Looking forward to the weekend...

Rule-breaking by using patterned trousers in a large-scale glen plaid. Not using patterned trousers is not a hard & fast faux-rule, I suppose, but it's certainly only seen rarely in this thread. They also happen to be trousers from a suit, and wearing suit elements as separates is also rare here:  Plus, yesterday's fit. In a way I...
Spectre: Funnily enough, that was the original plan but then I ended up booking enough stuff in for work that I figured I might as well wear a tie. I don't normally wear ties with BD shirts but a knit seemed OK. But yeah, that's why the shoes & tie are a bit mismatched. Anyway...
 That's the kind of power I wield. The shoes are a bit more shapely than they seem. They always look like slippers in pics, but IRL they're regular suede loafers in a fairly sleek last. Oh well. *shrug*
