A few years ago, I did a capsule wardrobe in the fall, and one of the biggest lessons I learned from it was that there is nothing wrong with sticking to a color palette I love in my wardrobe! Just because other people are stocking up on camel sweaters and burgundy floral dresses this time of year doesn’t mean that I need to–I’m so much more comfortable in my go-to grays, blues, pinks, and whites (with the occasional bit of sparkle for good measure ;)).
When Fossil reached out to me about styling some products from their fall collection, I was a little bit tempted by the brown leather version of their Rachel tote (mine is still available here)…after all, you’ll find a buttery brown tote in just about every “fall must-haves” guide on the internet. Dave is the one who convinced me to go with the steel blue one instead, and I am SO glad he did! The dusky shade feels just right for the season, but will look great throughout the year, and it’s a perfect fit with the pieces in my mostly-cool-toned fall closet. I’ve been grabbing it every time I want a little break from my diaper bag, and love that it’s big enough for all of Charlie’s essentials or a laptop, depending on where I’m headed that day.
Another Fossil piece I can’t get enough of lately? This rose gold watch! It’s a hybrid smartwatch, so while it looks just like a chic, chunky watch, it also tracks my steps, notifies me when one of my “top six” people calls or texts me (the watch vibrates and the hands move to the number I assigned each person), and even acts as the shutter button for the camera on my phone. Technology, amiright? :) I always disliked wearing my Fitbit with dressier outfits, but I’ve been wearing this watch every day!
So, do you find that the colors in your closet change with the seasons, or do you stick to a tried-and-true color palette? I’d be so interested to hear what your go-to colors are, especially for fall!
