As September winds down, I'm starting to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Autumn is my favourite time of year (my birthday!!) and I've always naturally gravitated towards fall colours.
Imagine my disappointment when I was around 13 and had my "colours done" at my Aunt Cathy's (it was a mother/daughter party with about 8-10 of us) only to discover that I was a Spring! I wanted to be an Autumn!here and scroll down and check out the pictures! It's too funny - that's the version of the book I remember.
I did art in school and art classes in the summer, so I was familiar with all the shades of colours, but it was how they were grouped by season that fascinated me, and learning about warm and cool shades. And as I said, I was drawn to the autumnal palette. I've believed for a long time that if you love a colour, you should wear that colour - I've always loved yellows, oranges and reds. I recall being annoyed by all the pink I was "supposed" to be wearing as a Spring.
But onto the outfit - I digress!
This is my stretchy kimono top again (last seen here on the weekend), along with a rust-coloured cami (not part of the capsule), and my coral linen-blend skirt (last worn here).
