Blazer, J. Crew • Shell, Vera Wang for Kohl’s • Pants, Ann Taylor • Shoes, Nine West Outlet
When I bought this blazer, I knew it was an obvious summer piece – but I couldn’t just save it for a few months out of the year. I was determined to make it work for fall – and why not? Get your money out of those summer staples by pairing them with fall colors. Fabric weight is a lot more important than color for seasonal items – my eyelet blazer, for instance, is way too light for October. Plus I get another chance to wear my favorite cords with an outfit like this – seriously, could Ann Taylor have designed a more flattering style?
And how perfect I’m wearing plum – that’s the color for this month’s Color Challenge! Also called eggplant, burgundy or my personal favorite, aubergine, this is one of my favorite fall and winter colors.
Joining in the Color Challenge is easy – just come back in a week (Thursday, October 18) and add your blog link. I can’t wait to see your plum outfits!
