Autumn Looks in Shades of Chestnut and Rose

The full beauty of autumn in NYC.  Leaves changing color, whispers of cold air passing through, and quiet moments between here and there.

Sharing two looks today – a color story of beige in Central Park and shades of rose-red in Times Square.  Both looks embrace the essence of autumn.

Pockets of foliage are changing colors in Central Park and it’s breathtaking.  This is just the beginning, so expect more blog posts from this incredible place =)  Celebrating the different textures and colors of Central Park, I wanted to create a look that captures the harmony of patterns, anchored by shades of orange, chestnut, and ecru.  Mixing plaid with checkerboard prints in similar color palettes, I pulled out one of my favorite trench coats and turtlenecks.  Pairing them with chestnut colored accessories to pull the look together, I relied on my go-to pieces – this ‘Alunna’ bag and classic tan suede pumps.

I’m not much of a pink gal, but I love it when pinks are used in strong looks, like a suit.  The balance of something soft like rose colors with something structured like pants suits are a winning combination in my humble opinion.  Playing with the idea of pinks + reds, I layered my pink suit (currently sold-out, but here are some amazing ones: Ted Baker soft pink suit, Rachel Zoe magenta pink suit, ASOS double-breasted light pink blazer) with a merlot bag.  I love the style and design of these bags.  It feels a little vintage.  Maybe because of it’s tall briefcase-feel rectangle-ish shape?  A little familiarity mixed with something modern!

I hope you enjoy both looks!  As always, thank you so much for reading!
