The one with all the orange

Next tuesday our Queen will abdicate, and her oldest son Willem-Alexander will ascend the throne. Even though our flag is red, white and blue, the colour orange is special to us 'Dutchies'. When our national team plays soccer we dress up in orange and on april 30th, when we celebrate the queen's birthday, lots of orange can be seen. Why orange? Willem van Oranje (= Dutch for orange) became the Prince of Oranje in 1544, at only 11 years old! Enough history, on with the good stuff! Orange is far from my favourite colour, the only thing orange I own, is a bottle of nailpolish. But these Etsy finds might change my opinion on this sunny colour.

  5. I like the orange in the necklace. Orange is not my go-to color, so I like that it's a small dose.
