HTML HTML Forms Choosing Options Create a Select Menu

Not sure why I can't pass this challenge. They asked me to create a label for the "select" element and I thought I did.

I am not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
        <label for="color">Shirt Color:</label>
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
        <option value="purple">Purple</option>
        <option value="blue">Blue</option>
        <option value="green">Green</option>
        <option value="orange">Orange</option>
      </select>




    </form>

Hey Shanen,

Try putting the label outside of the select element.

Think of elements as containers, so if you wanted to write your name on the container, it would be better to put it on the outside instead of the inside, right? :D
