Block Party

13 Sep

I have been looking for the perfect pair of colored denim jeans for Fall. While out shopping the other day I found these beauties and was thrilled with the color and fit. They are the perfect twilight blue, really soft and they aren’t clingy, making them oh so comfortable.  I wear so much denim in the Fall and Winter that it will be nice to switch out the normal “blue jeans” for a nice pop of color.

New Combinations

25 Aug

It is inevitable that color blocking is not going anywhere this Fall. Wearing solid colors mixed together was so strong for Spring and Summer and with Fall this trend is still present.  However, with Fall’s new color palette this allows for some amazing color play and great combinations that are pleasing to the eye. The colors are still vibrant and strong, just not so electric, but richer and more jewel like. (as I discussed here) Wearing gray and orange seems like a perfect match. I am loving the burnt orange, instead of the fluorescent variety and switching out white sandals for neutral flat boots, adding a cropped jacket really completes the outfit. Especially for this days when it is 77 and sunny during the day and then the temps drop below 65 at night. A few of my other Fall color combinations are Mustard Yellow and Navy and Orange with Camel. These pairings are classic will undoubtedly last far beyond the Fall 2011 season.
