Autumn Leaves are Brown, and the Sky is Gray


I knew our awesome unseasonably warm and sunny fall weather had to come to an end soon, and it did yesterday. It rained pretty much all day, and this morning, although the sun is shining again, it's dropped below 50. But it's not snowing or freezing, so it could be worse.

 I've been kind of bad about mentioning what item(s) is being rescued for No Repeats, but I have been digging through the depths of my closet and/or unpacked moving boxes. This sweater hasn't seen the blog since February 25th.  I like the space-dyed pattern of it, but the color totally washes me out, so it needs to be paired with bright, bold colors to prevent that.  Similar to how Kristen broke up her all-cream-on-top ensemble with a bold teal scarf.  I bought this sweater before I had a good handle on which colors I should probably avoid, but tricks like this help me dress around that.

Cardigan: Gap Outlet
Tank: Target
Jeans: Old Navy
Necklace: New York & Company
Shoes: Born


  1. the bright top totally makes the cardigan work, and this doesn't seem like it's going to be the best fall... leaves are brown without turning orange first and the rain is miserable.

  2. They turned orange and yellow here first, but it's like they've fallen off the trees overnight!

  3. I think the purple top looks great on you, and it definitely makes the light cardigan work on you.

  4. Love how you added the color to punch up that great cardi!  The fall weather is finally stay, I think!

  5. I think the bright blouse totally works to make the cardigan work as well.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Anne.

  6. I think you did really well pairing it with that bold top! It looks like a pretty color/pattern! I'm also loving that gorgeous necklace!

  7. See, for that sweater, the bright purple works nicely. Well done!
    (And thanks for the mention. :))
