Since I can remember, I’ve never really followed the “fashion rules.” No white after Labor Day?! Who are you kidding, I loveeeeeee winter whites, although I’m known for staining my white clothes the first time I wear them! Along with the “don’t mix blacks and blues,” the mixing black and brown rule also does not apply anymore! I think the lighter the shade of brown, the nicer it goes with blacks!!!
I chose to mix a chestnut fall tone with black to slowly and sadly creep into the fall color scheme. Two-toned color blocking seems so boring to me, so throwing in another neutral toned (cream) clutch, helped add a little more to the outfit.
9 times out of 10 accessories determine your outfit theme. If I would have chosen to wear a strappy heel, my outfit would have been over-dressed for just a nice day in Newport! Instead I chose to go with bootie-short heels, and added a hat to tone down the over-dressed vibe. Ladies!! When you feel overdressed, don’t over-do your hair! My HMUA threw a cute little messy fishtail in to also tone down the dressy vibe.
It’s time to whip out your favorite skirts before under-layering with tights! The leaves will change so so soon!
