I always gravitate toward neutrals, especially when it comes to fall pieces. I mean how can you go wrong with a cozy taupe sweater or a gray scarf? Bold colors can be intimidating during the fall months. Tans fade, your complexion becomes milkier; hot pink doesn’t look so cute when you’re resembling Casper. But with recent life changes and risks that have proven to work out in my favor, I decided to give add some bold pieces to my fall wardrobe. This full sleeve red top turned out to be an immediate success. The bold red complements my (slightly) new hair color, and I paired it with my favorite heeled mules. Venturing outside of my comfort zone has not only propelled my growth, but it has also opened my eyes to other and new passions. Whether you wear something you thought you’d never wear, accept a job in a different field or decide to try out a new sport, take a leap outside of your comfort zone and see where it takes you. If it doesn’t work out, at least you can say you tried something new.
I think it’s safe to say that when in doubt, shades of grey are your best bet. This outfit is a personal favorite of mine, the Banana Republic windowpane black and white peplum sweater is one of my staples, I like to call it my “Class Act” sweater because it’s sophisticated enough to wear to work, but it has a casual/fun side making it easily worn with
jeans all colored denim for that matter. To top this look off, I layered it with my Ann Taylor 3/4 sleeve high collared jacket, which has become such a part of me, that it’s much like Linus van Pelt’s blanket (excuse my Charlie Brown reference).
On days like today when it’s difficult to pull yourself out of bed, let alone brush your hair, create a shades of grey look of your own– it never fails.
