Alphabet Soup - Letter of the Day is O

O is for oasis.  O is for ocean.  O is for oil spill.  I am deeply saddened by the lack of regulations regarding the EPA and the oil spill that grows by the second.  Did you hear they are talking about months before it's stopped?  I love the ocean.  Sad.  Just sad. 

Well, the color orange is hard for me to wear, but I think it's a very cheery color.  So here are some lovelies to cheer us up.

  3. yea, it is really saddening how crazy this oil spill is getting and how it is affecting our ecosystem. my friend was supposed to go on a cruise in october that ports in new orleans but they have already cancelled it b/c of the oil spill. =(

    i definitely don't have enough orange in my life, b/c like you, it is hard for me to wear. i do think it is a fun color though! great picks!

  6. I know I shouldn't be so suspicious, but I keep wondering if BP would feel more urgency if the spill was occuring in the North Sea. It is an international company, but the Gulf of Mexico is not "home". I'm probably off-base on that.

  8. Argh everytime we see the oil spill on the news, the boy just gets depressed. It's so sad and maddening to see how many times they try to plug it and fail!

  9. Ohhh, the oil spill is so sad. It's just so distressing. I honestly don't even know what else to say about it. On a happier note, I LOVE orange! I truly think that anyone can wear it; it's all about finding the perfect shade :)

  11. Oh.. the oil spil.. I can't with that! If everything would done as must be done from the beggining nothing of this happened. It's REALLY SAD.

    I don't wear usually this color, but there's some cool things!

  27. That's a great (and conforting) story about your grandma. Thank you for sharing that.

    PS - I read that the head of BP would like to "get his life back". Doesn't sound like the spill's ecological impact is his top concern.

  39. I have one orange item of 'clothing' - a pair of bright orange Tigers. They are my favourite pair of shoes. I love how I can wear them with a pair of jeans and a shirt and they stand out and automatically make my outfit fun!

  40. Wow wow, and wow. All of your orange items are fantastic.

    I also am very sad by the oil spill. It's infathomable how much oil is being lost as well as home much damage it will cause.

  44. I love the orange Maxi Dress. How gorgeous. It is sad about the oil spill. It's sad to see it spread and hurt even more of the environment. It just makes me sick.

    Orange can be a lovely colour but I like it when it's more muted. But it can look really lovely.
