Color Crush

Although it’s not technically fall yet, I love looking at all the fall arrivals in stores and online. I like to pick up a few new items each season, but I also enjoy finding different ways to wear old favorites. One theme I’ve been seeing lately is the fresh pairing of soft, indigo blues with deep, burnt orange. Many people avoid wearing orange, however, I think paired with blues it can make a beautiful combination that’s rich in tone and texture.

The Inspiration:

I tend to gravitate towards burgundy, navy, and olive green for fall, but orange is growing on me. I already picked up these orange corduroys that will go great with chambray, heather gray, and even hunter green.

The warmth of the orange with stormy indigo creates a refreshing blend that’s pleasing to the eye and stands out in a sea of black leggings. This is a color pairing I’ll be sporting this upcoming autumn.

    Love these outfits!!

    I waited a while to seee if Jcrew got some duffle coats for the fall, and here it is: PS, I am considering “grey” in both of the coats.

    Here it is from Brooke Brothers:,nb_NO,pd.html?dwvar_SW00012_Color=GREY&contentpos=6&cgid=0246

    I have about the same haircolour as you (little darker in the roots with sunbleached stripes in the ends) but I am considering to get my whole hair as the colour it has in the roots, I think it is dark blonde/light brown, because I want the colour to be more “whole” than it is now!

    Hope you can help me! 🙂 as always, I am so grateful for your advice with shoppingdecisions!

    Hugs from Norway

      I still love the Brooks Brothers one best! I think the toggles have a nicer appearance and the coat has a better texture than the J Crew one. They are both great choices though and I know you’ll love having a gray toggle coat! I definitely agree with going for one hair color for fall/winter than the ombre look. It’s always fun to try new things and hair can always be changed or grow out. 🙂

      Let me know which coat you go with!
