Fall Colors

It took me awhile to warm up to brown/gold (prefer black/silver), but over time, I've accumulated variations of both colors in my wardrobe. To date, I still think this olive-brown cardigan I'm wearing under the blazer is one of the hardest colors to pair. As the main color, it sometimes reminds me of vomit, but as an accent color, no such thoughts cross my mind. I suppose for some things, less is more.

top: Gap raw edge henley blouse (similar)

ring: Forever 21 (similar)

  2. Lol! Dijon mustard usually comes to mind, not vomit! You did a great job pairing these.

    Catching up on your blog...love that you wore your poppy scarf over Veterans Day weekend! I thought of you this week when we discussed Veterans Day in my classroom...the poppies reminded me of you! :)

    1. A few shades lighter and the color can pass for dijon mustard ;)

      Darn it! I wish I can take credit for wearing poppies over Veteran's Day :( Sadly, it was just a lucky coincidence.

  6. I love this colour combination. Olive green looks lovely with autumnal colours brown, mustard yellow, burnt orange and tomato red.

  10. OMG Cee me too!!! I was NEVER a gold wearing person before but I just started wearing pieces recently. It still takes some getting used to and even my mom commented as I would cringe at the site of gold jewellery when I was younger LOL!

    1. Does gold remind you of old people? For some reason that's what I always associated with, haha. Team silver!

  11. That shade always looks good when paired with dark greens and browns, exactly like how you styled it in this outfit! I've always been a gold person.. It just seems more warm and inviting than silver!

  12. Love everything about this look! I have always been a fan of the gold/brown (unlike maybe of the other commentors, i'm not much a fan of silver). Great way to pull it together!!

    Also agree that the brown cardi under ur blazer does not look at all like vomit. It's a beautiful olive mustard! Great for fall.
