Happy last day of August! This month really flew by, didn’t it? If we’re being honest, the whole summer went by way too fast. I didn’t even get to the beach! My donut floatie and I sat by the pool all summer wishing there were some waves to splash in and boardwalk fries to munch on. Oh well, Texas can’t have everything can it? I AM really excited about the fall season unofficially starting tomorrow though! Pumpkin spice latte everything, right? Before the first day of every basic girl’s favorite season, let’s chat about some fall wish list items and great color palettes for the season!
In the above collage, you’ll notice a stark difference in colors between the first few items and the last few, yet it blends beautifully. We tend to think of fall colors as being red, navy blue, tan, dark green etc. If you have a warm skin tone, then those colors are made for you! However, other skin tones don’t look as hot in them. Shades of gray, turquoise, and plum fit the bill for people who can’t sport Texas Longhorns orange. Best of all, those colors are really popular this fall!
The next thing we should chat about is what you might want to include in your fall wardrobe. There are a few classics I’ll never get rid of, such as the J. Crew quilted vest and a warm, plaid blanket scarf. I’m also really excited about adding a cape top like the plum one above (it comes in 3 colors too!) and the tan peep toe booties to my closet! Seriously, that cape top is so cute! Pairing it with that Kate Spade plaid satchel bag would make for a great outfit. Last, but definitely not least, I’d love to have those tortoiseshell Kate Spade earrings! They’re a great neutral piece of jewelry that looks nice with pretty much anything. Who doesn’t love that?
I’m leaving a link to everything so you can scroll through and find your favorites (plus there’s a few other surprises in there!)-Liz
