Shari Braendel, author of Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad, recommended bordeaux as a fashionable color for fall.
I thought I couldn't wear bordeaux. I thought my red hair would clash with it. I avoid red and pink tones in clothing. Shari suggested I try wearing a few accessories in bordeaux with a color that works well for me: olive.
That sounded like such a fresh and fun color combination, I just had to try it.
So I've been collecting accessories in bordeaux.
to wear with this moss green shirt (moss is very close to olive, right?).
which I will probably wear with an indigo denim shirt and an olive skirt or olive jeans, and big olive earrings.
I found this amazing nail polish, which is a color somewhere between bordeaux and black. I'll wear it with my connemara marble ring.
And my husband crocheted a hat for me. Yes. My husband rocks.
It fits kind of like this hat, except I wear it a little further back on my head:
Last week I was hunting in my garage for a curriculum guide I need for my children this year and I found a beautiful Bible cover.
this fall's purse shape as well. I updated it with a scarf.
What color is calling to you this fall?
