August Challenge Week 4: hot Fall capsules: red and brown

Another fall capsule for the warm days of September and October. I probably need to add more neutrals like denim clams to make this workable. The jeans will be too warm unless rolled.
I welcome your thoughts and ideas

    Love the colours, Joy! No white after Labour Day though?

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    I will certainly wear white after Labor Day. I loved wearing it last year and it extended the wear of my white jeans. White jeans will need to wait until the weather cools down. Most of my white tones right now for warm weather are more dressy. I plan to wait until next spring to replace white cutoffs. You will probably see my white linen pants though.

    Gorgeous colors, Joy! I think a pair of jeans and a cream/light tan colored bottom of some kind would round this out perfectly.

    How long will the warm Fall capsule be in rotation...4-6 weeks?

    I'm really looking forward to seeing you in these colors, Joy. And you have some really interesting pieces here, like that statement necklace and the little capalet! I especially love that ruched long brown skirt - what brand is that?

    Gorgeous.  I love following your thought process and look forward to WIWs.  

    I too wear white whenever the weather dictates.  I live in the south and we can easily wear white into October/November.  It makes no sense to me to put away clothing items are perfectly suited for the weather conditions.  That said, I do get comments from people regarding "white" and "labor day."

    You are going like a Boeing, Joy. And isn't it your birthday soon? 

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    I lost a post with all my responses and will try again. 

    Thank you Carter, Viva, Sterling and Angie.

    Carter, the warm fall capsules will be for about 6 weeks, maybe longer.  I also have jeans, light jackets and long-sleeved items that I can add to each capsule as the weather cools.

    Viva, I think that you are looking at the Lee cargo cropped pants on the right?  I do have a Classiques Entiere pencil skirt in dark brown on the left.

    Sterling, I know what you mean about people and white and fall.  They have stopped asking me but the white blends with my hair color.

    Angie, I have needed to do this and have held back some summer weight stuff to have something that feels fresh for this time of year.  My birthday was just last week and we are still celebrating.  DH also had a recent birthday.  We have both had too many yummy dinners and lunches lately.

    Happy (belated) Birthday Joy & Mr Joy :) This is a lovely capsule & imo will transition nicely into your cooler weather.

    ooh -these are such wonderful fall colours - and you have some really nice pieces here!  I particularly like that brown skirt with the drawstring feature on the side, and that printed dolman/capelet top thingy.  A very workable capsule here !
