You know what makes me sad? That mustard yellow is among Pantone’s top 10 colors for fall. I don’t know about you but mustard yellow is no friend of mine. In fact I could probably name one person mustard does something for. If you love this retro color and wear it frequently please comment in the posts below so that I can look you up on instagram and change my mind about it. Until then I’ll be stocking my closet full of another one of Pantone’s colors for fall, Dusty Cedar. I will admittedly say that Pantone could have picked a prettier name for this hue so we will collectively refer to it as dusty coral for simplicity’s sake. This color is a nod to 2016, aka the year of rosÃ©, and Pantone’s co-color of the year, Rose Quartz. And here you thought a bunch of bloggers ordering sparkling wine is what started the trend. A deep hue of coral like the one in this top is perfect for fall because it pairs so great with denim and cognac (tan) accessories.
Since I live in the South and it’s hotter than deep fried Hell down here right now I’m also a little sad it isn’t quite yet fall. However, I will be living vicariously through the pages of this blog and will be previewing some of my favorite fall trends over the coming weeks. In some of the posts I will be sweating to death but this one in particular was totally bearable. If you’re like me and are yearning to dress in fall clothes you can solve that itch two ways. Number 1: follow along in the weeks to come and go ahead and start shopping for fall (this is my favorite obviously). Number 2: Plan a date night, pray for a cool breeze and wear an outfit like this one. I love this look for pre-fall because it follows a cardinal rule of wearing jeans in late summer – leave room for your body to breathe. To do this simply cuff your jeans, wear open toed booties and add an airy blouse on top (tank top underneath optional). Stay tuned as I’ll be sharing more fall trends over the coming weeks and let me know if you have any specific requests in the comments below!
