I love how certain color palettes correspond to specific seasons. When fall rolls around I always find myself drawn to rust, mustard, navy, and wine. Color that are a little more subdued, but still rich. Fall has so many of it's own colors that it's hard to not be inspired by my surroundings. This herringbone skirt is a fall staple. I almost never wear it during any other time of the year, despite it being one of my favorite pieces. The warm weather is lingering on, but this outfit with a pair of tights and a cardigan would work just perfectly once the temperatures drop.
As always, I'm mixing prints. I have a deplorable lack of leopard print in my closet, especially for a blog called Delightfully Tacky. I feel like leopard print perfectly walks that line of being delightfully tacky. It's luxe but also a bit kitschy, which is right up my alley. Of course, sometimes leopard print can stray into full-on tacky (oh hai, leopard snuggies), but I love when it's deployed well. Some more discerning people might avoid pairing leopard with other prints, but I'm pretty sure I can't not mix prints, so of course I am. Next time, though, I think I might pair it with an LBD for a date night. The bright orange would be a fun punch of color against black.
I saw Rebecca post a picture on instagram wearing a huge stack of bracelets and I was inspired to create my own "arm party." I wear so few wrist adornments because most of them are too big and just fall off over my hand. I had to remove four segments to get this watch to fit, but I'm glad I did because it makes me feel pretty fabulous. I really love the look of stacked bracelets and watches, so I might start doing it more often! Elastic bracelets work better than, say, bangles. I'm pretty sure I could wear most bangles around my upper arm. Maybe I'll start doing that too. A little Xena Warrior Princess realness, eh?
