{Color Me Pretty}

Accessorize yourself with...

Pops of Color

I know I probably sound like a broken record. Color, color and more color. Sure, I love neutrals. Yes, I have plenty of brown, grey and black clothing to go around a time or two. But this season, I've decided to stop my routine of wearing mostly brights during the spring and summer seasons and start adding them to my fall and winter wardrobe as well. For instance...

I decided to invest in a few new items for my closet, including colored jeans. Cobalt, teal, maroon, rose, mint...I wanted to have more of a variety when it comes to pants. It's already proving to be worth the investment. I love a good, dark pair of jeans...but for those days when I want to wear a neutral-colored, over-sized knit sweater or spice up an otherwise traditional 'winter' outfit, these definitely do the trick!

Sometimes, just one piece of brightly colored clothing is enough to make a bold statement. Another item of clothing I love in a great color is a coat. Over the years, my coat collection has grown...and I'm slowly working my way through my favorite colors.

My top-pick color is red. It adds such a pop to your look and compliments every skin tone. I also have grown fond of mustard yellow, burnt orange, bright purple and kelly green. I've got my eye on a certain color this winter, but may need to practice a little self-restraint and add it to my wish list for now.

For me, a perfect fall outfit is a chunky sweater, paired with colored jeans, a lot of gold accessories and a fabulous pair of boots! Or perhaps a little black dress with colored tights and an eye-catching overcoat. Or maybe even...well, the possibilities are endless!
