You ever browse around online, spot something in a color you love, and have an immediate mini-obsession with it? That was me recently, and it was with the lovely, orangey-hued persimmon. Persimmons (as in, the fruit) don’t technically come into season until fall, but if you ask me, this color is au courant almost anytime. How adorable are those espadrilles?!

A quick cross country move update: I’m sure I’ll report back more later this week, but we’re officially in NYC and settled into our temporary lodgings! And we already Seamless-ed in takeout. Are we officially New Yorkers?

    I love this color! This is definitely one of my go-to options when I am looking for an outfit that will “pop”!

    Welcome to NY! :)

    Gap has kind of been killing it lately — I love that cardigan! I have a recurring obsession with coral, so persimmon is a perfect baby step away from it. Cannot wait to hear more about New York!

    I love this color! I got hooked on persimmons (the food) last fall, and can tell this color will be my new style crush throughout the summer.

    And yes, Seamless-ing food officially makes you a New Yorker. Can’t wait to see you on Wednesday!

    I’m officially obsessed with this color. I’m not sure which I love more: the actual color or saying persimmon haha.

    I picked up a pair of shorts from J.Crew in Neon Persimmon only a few weeks ago! It’s the perfect summer hue and it looks great against my dark skin tone :)

    Glad to hear you made it to NYC safely! How is the apartment hunt going?

    Seamless is an integral part of NYC life- I order in at least once a week!
