Warm & Cozy Colors

Fashion Color Report #4 & #5 - Coffee Liqueur & Nougat

My poor little blog has been neglected! I have styled numerous families in the last couple months & have been taking photos, building up my portfolio as my hobby may just turn into something more... soon!?!  My time has been spent searching, pairing, accessorizing, clicking & editing. Now, time for a little reprieve to give a little love & attention to the blog while hopefully giving you all tips & fun fashionable finds!  Back to those fabulous fall colors...

Seriously, these two - coffee liqueur & nougat, just sound so delicious and toasty warm for a cool crisp fall day! I love the pairing of a bright pop of color with the more subdued brown tones. GORGEOUS! 

A little color inspiration for my first look!

These are my Polyvore Sets using the brown tones... 
I could see this first look for a casual photo session, play date, or just running errands around town! Layer with a patterned tank & a neutral coat for all of you experiencing COLD weather. Pair with skinny jeans and Uggs too!

This look could work for a little dressier photo session, or perhaps a lunch date, or even to the office! Again, loving the pop of color in the headband or bangles. This OLD NAVY dress could also be paired with a long sleeve tee under the dress, in a brown or ivory tone. Hey, maybe belt it with your favorite wide animal print! You know I could never have a post without animal print, or mention of it!
PS - I included my FAVORITE boots... Frye! LOVE them, I have this pair in black. They are THE most comfortable pair of boots I've ever worn. Find them at Nordstrom or Zappos.
Here's a warm chocolate look. YEP, another budget dress! This one is from Target. But remember, I am notorious for pairing an inexpensive piece with nicer accessories & handbag... does so much for the overall look. Change out the belt for one already in your closet, add a cool patterned or textured scarf and coordinating earring like the ones shown for another way to wear this dress. Bundle up with your neutral winter jacket and fashionable mittens... your set!

Here's a look at infant/toddler accessory options, of course perfect for a fall/winter photo session! All pieces can be found on Etsy from these shops... Lolly Bop Baby, Oops I knit it Again, Yaso Kids, Bellas Boutique, Cherry Blossom Boutique & Artistic Inclinations.

Here are my pinterest boards... follow my fashion inspiration @!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you found some inspiration for your fall/winter wardrobe. Remember to own your personal style and don't be afraid to kick it up a notch every now & then. Whether you're into the faux fur vest, sparkle dress & peep toe booties, or a comfortable cable knit sweater, jeans, & uggs are your thing... at least one piece in "chocolate liqueur or "nougat," should most definitely be a staple in your closet this fall and into winter.
Stay warm & cozy!
