Sometimes fall is synonymous with dark colors. But I don’t see why we color lovers need to constrain ourselves! Especially since fall is when nature is going crazy with its beautiful, rich hues spanning from green all the way to brown. So I have decided to combine camel and blush in fall for a wonderful work look!
To make my point, I found this gorgeous tree and used it as my backdrop for some amazing, color rich blog pictures! When you see this tree and all the trees like it you really get inspired to brighten up your fall looks. At least I did!
I picked out a simple blush sweater t-shirt from J.Crew. The pretty blush top against a lovely J.Crew camel woolen skirt looked chic and simple. A good work look I thought to myself. But a tad bit boring too! People have used many adjectives to describe my fashion sense, but boring was never one. So I wandered about my closet and jewelry case trying to spice up the look. When I saw the gorgeous scarf I bought when I was in Quito I knew I had my completer piece!
I recently read this article – The Science of Style. The article was front and center in my mind when I picked out this scarf. The prime objective of this article was to convey the idea that the pieces in your outfit should only moderately match. That was the key to dressing for success! Well that’s perfect I thought as I picked out the bright purple scarf. It was close enough to pink and had tones of camel. Not matchy matchy at all! The work look was coming together nicely. Polished, simple and elegant!
Next up picking out the accessories. It was a cold day, tights was not really an option, so I pulled out a pair of Spanx. For a dash of edge I picked out a pair of animal print pumps from J.Crew and a black back from Kate Spade with calf hair. I am also wearing a Tory Burch watch and a J.Crew bracelet.The great part about this look is that it transitions from desk to dinner superbly. I used the same outfit to go out to dinner that very night!
So what do you think? Do you like it? If you do then hurry up and shop at J.Crew, all these pieces are currently 50% off! Happy Shopping 🙂
