I started with a dark ruddy brown leather pencil skirt and then loosely tucked in a short sleeved, creamy, batwing blouse with fashion sketches on it. I topped that with a cobalt blue cardigan cut long with dolman sleeves. For shoes I chose cobalt suede pumps and the handbag is a leather and woven combination in dark brown and dark beige. The earrings are cobalt blue. As crisp and refreshing as a cool fall morning.
This third look started with the idea of boots, but I actually chose the high necked, sleeveless sweater dress first. I love the rich ruby color of it. I added a ruby and gold scarf to the neck for accent and gold earrings and cuff bracelet for more gold. I made sure that my gold was a really yellow gold so that it would pull the color from the scarf and sweater. Because I topped it all off with this very golden yellow sweater. Then I added the ruby boots and bag. Not quite the ruby slippers that Dorothy had, but I'll bet they get you home.
With as much of this tone as I've used lately, you'd think I would wear it a lot. But I really don't. It's one of those colors that I haven't been able to find lately. But I'm looking for it. 1, I like the color, and 2, I look good in it.
The fall palette is so rich that you can't help but be amazing on Monday or any other day of the week!
Hope you had a great weekend. See you tomorrow!
