Cognac Fall Capsule Collection
Hello again! I hope everyone is enjoying those last few weeks of summer before we jump into fall. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am a huge fan of capsule collections, I love how just a few pieces can make so many [cute] outfits. As I was daydreaming about my latest shoe obsession (these GORGEOUS Frye ombre sandals), I decided to put together a few simple, everyday outfits using just neutrals. Cognac is one of my favorite shades of brown, it could be because it complements my light complexion but still looks great at the end of the summer with a nice tan…Or just that it reminds me of fall, which as it seems, might be here early this year. I was trying really hard to hold onto my summer mentality, but unfortunately the weather is pushing me straight into September and October. It’s been cool (almost cold) and rainy, and things are starting to turn golden outside. Which means I’ve been starting to bake, I never know why but I just feel like baking this time of year.
Here is a sample capsule collection, and believe me, I could go ON and ON with this one. I feel that every single one of these pieces match things I already have in my closet. For example, the piece below could easily pair with my favorite new Ariat boots (see my previous fall post), to a fall canvas trench coat that has been in there for years, my gold tone jewelry (who doesn’t have that already?!) to cream sweaters, etc. These pieces are both statement pieces, with details like laser-cutting, embroidery, and braided texture and yet they can easily transition into everyday staples. Honestly if I had to pick just TWO piece from this entire capsule collection, it would be the raffia statement necklace and the shoes. Why? Because they are pieces that could match clothes from any season from now until 2050! Maybe that’s exaggerating a little, but if anyone is willing to test it, I’m on board!
