Neutrals and Nudes

Now that some cooler weather has come my way, I’m starting to fall in love with Fall (okay, I was always in love with Fall) and the neutral color palette of browns and grays it brings. Jumper: TK Maxx / Shoes: Aldo.

I also read this interesting story about some scarves produced by Anthropologie and wanted to share.

To further mark the changing of the leaves, I was reading a collection of Robert Frost poems and came across this lovely verse:

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold,
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

I have been pretty much living in neutrals this month. I love them so much, and I feel like it might be making my blog photos slightly redundant. I am trying to mix it up with brown paired with black, and especially navy paired with black. Hopefully that will keep away the boredom.
