While I believe there’s a way to wear just about any color you fancy, even if it’s not “your” color, I get that putting together a cohesive wardrobe is easier when we focus on those colors that we know will work. Some of you mentioned in comments on my last post that you’d like to see more options in cool fall colors.
Above, the color may be cool, but you won’t need to wait until there’s frost on the ground to wear this linen cardigan. The bright berry color would look smashing with grey hair! It would work with just about any neutral in your wardrobe, including olive. And if you’re feeling daring, pair with something burgundy…
Shades of teal and green can also work well with cooler coloring, and I think we’ll have a lot of options in those shades this fall. This teal sweater would pair nicely with navy or grey.
I adore forest green, and currently have this cotton sweater in my shopping cart. Think I’m going to bite.
I’m just getting started on sharing fall colors and styles, so if there’s anything in particular you’re looking for, let me know.
A Plant-Based Diet?
Over the weekend one of my relatives was in town briefly, and stopped by the house to visit. As I was getting ready to prepare lunch, she let me know that at age 78, she has adopted a vegan diet. (Fortunately I’d already planned a big salad…just skipped the meat.) This is quite a change for her. She’s had one major bout with breast cancer (resulting in a double mastectomy a couple of decades ago) and had recently had treatment for a pre-cancerous lesion on her gum. The surgeon who treated her recommended she read this book. She did, and it convinced her to radically change her diet.
She isn’t the first person I know who has mentioned The China Study as the catalyst to make a big dietary shift. I’ve been trying to move toward a more plant-based diet over the last year or so. I’ve ordered the book and will report back. Have you read it? What did you think?
Edited to add: I’m not endorsing this or any other eating plan, just curious about others’ experiences.
A Little Makeover
I’ve been working the last couple of weeks on giving the blog a little pre-Fall makeover. I still have a couple of minor tweaks to do. But I’m quite pleased with the overall look. Do let me know if anything doesn’t seem to be working as it should.
