You know, I so wish I could tag this post as part of the “What’s In My Wardrobe” category. Instead, it stubbornly resides in “Aspirations” with no real hope of crossing over. Unlike last year, I didn’t have a chance (or, honestly, the motivation) to parse the Fall 2012 Collections. After first checking out the trend report at style.com to get an overall sense of the season (we’re talkin’ brocades, prints, peplum tops, etc.), I went the more practical and expedient route of visiting several retail sites to see what would catch my eye.*
There you have it–my relatively down-to-earth fall fashion picks. And I’m usually not that into the color blue for my wardrobe but as luck would have it, Pantone just announced its top 10 colors for Spring 2013. What tops the list? Monaco Blue and Dusk Blue.
* I realize this could work better as a Pinterest board but geez, I don’t know if I can handle committing to yet another social media platform.
Update on Sept. 20, 2012: I headed to J.Crew after a rewarding day at work and bought the Excursion vest in navy. (The warm bisque color wasn’t all that flattering on me.) The store was having a spot sale so I got it for 25% off. It’s warm with a streamlined silhouette and just the right amount of puffiness. Perfect for October days to come!
