You can thank me later for this one. Right here, on this here blog, I hold the key to your happiness this fall.
Okay, so maybe that was a slight exaggeration. Slight.
It’s September, so technically we are right on the cusp of fall. I live in a state that usually doesn’t get the fall memo until mid-October, but that’s okay. In my mind, it allows me extra time to wear white and decide on one very important, life-changing thing.
My color for fall.
Oh, did you think this was going to be a little deeper than fall fashion colors? Well, it’s not, but it’s equally as important.
You need a color for fall. It’s going to be your signature color. Tita and I did this last year and it was fun! We had signature colors and spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Polyvore looking for combinations with our colors. And then we bought a few items throughout the fall in the color. And whenever we wore something in the color, it made us happy.
And we felt stylish.
I’m not really sure how one color did all of that for us, but it did. And now, when I see something in my wardrobe from last fall, I get a little nostalgic and think, “That’s my color.” Matter of fact, Tita gave me a bottle of nail polish with last year’s color and we both did a little sing songy, “Awwww” when we admired it.
Last fall, my color was plum. Once I decided on plum, I then bought just a few plum items:
1. One pair of plum skinny jeans
2, One plum cardigan
3. One plum cable knit pullover sweater
4. One peasant blouse with plum accents
5. One pair of heeled plum boots
And I bought them over the course of the fall and winter seasons so I didn’t break the bank.
This year, I’m still deciding on my fall color, but I’ve decided to have an accent color (plum), and to add a fall flower to my seasonal collection. The flower is separate from the clothing , however it will look pretty on my kitchen table. The reason for the accent color is because I still love plum, but I’m ready to branch out. And, I don’t want to waste the money I spent last fall.
So change your life this fall..and get a color. Add an accent color if you want. But definitely get a flower too. A fall flower just for you!
