Wardrobe | “New” Fall Color Combinations


This season I’m challenging myself to maybe try some color combinations I wouldn’t normally wear. Grey is a neutral I usually steer away from because of its cool tone. But I never thought to wear it with brown until recently. And believe it or not, this shirt is actually bright red and white chevron, but it appears pink from afar. We’ll just call it pink. Mashing all these colors together? Makes for a feminine, vintage-inspired color combination just perfect for fall!

Oh, and guess what? I found a new setting lotion for my hair, and can finally achieve the Rita Hayworth locks I’ve been aching to wear. Well, almost Ms. Hayworth. I’m not about to grow out my bangs or grow out all of my layers. But! Close enough, eh? I’ll share more about it another day when I can take photos.
