I used to rage against pastels, people. RAGE! As a lifelong devotee of saturated colors, I couldn't for the life of me figure out why anyone would want to dress like an Easter egg. And now, I find myself all egged up at least once per week. Like several other significant shifts in my personal...

This cardigan does a great job of making a decidedly summery dress feel autumnal, as do the boot socks. Due to an abundance of soft, flowy layers and flat, cushy boots, I felt just as comfy in this outfit as I would've in my PJs. * I tried several dye remover products, but nothing worked....

This outfit seemed slightly off until I added the belt and watch. Pops of color can liven up many outfits, but in this case, I needed some pops of pattern! Are you more likely to use patterns as centerpieces in your outfits, or accents? **Disclosure: Actions you take from the hyperlinks...

This bold green plays so nicely with other bright colors that I piled on gobs of purple accents. Some colors are just magnets for other colors, it seems. Purple, emerald, and other jewel tones are big for fall. Are you a fan of this palette? **Disclosure: Actions you take from the...
