I am working on finishing my Fall for Cotton challenge outfit (the top is almost finished, but I haven’t even started the skirt yet!). In the mean time I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my wardrobe in general – both what I want it to look like and whether or not it’s functional now. It’s something I think about from time to time, but the recent posts on Tilly and the Buttons about personal style and Bobbins and Whimsy about building a functional wardrobe have been inspiring me lately. I haven’t done a huge clean out or re-organization of my closet yet, but last night I did get rid of a few things that I realized I just never reach for. In both posts, they talk about having a signature color palette, and in her latest post, Jenny posted her own fall color palette and linked to a post where Gillian of Crafting a Rainbow shows us how to make our own!
I chose my colors pretty much by thinking about what I have in my closet and what I like to wear/what is flattering on me. I also looked at my Pinterest page to see what themes emerged, but I noticed that I often don’t pin clothes for color, because I know I can make them in whatever color I want 🙂
I wear navy, teal, and medium blue the most. That teal is probably my favorite color. I also really love saturated colors such as the forest green and burgundy. Gray is definitely my favorite neutral, and in smaller doses I wear mustard, kelly green, mint, black, and cream. I think having this color palette will help me when I am thinking about fabric choices, and going through my closet to determine what I am going to keep.
Some of the images above are from my fall wardrobe mood boards, which I will be posting about after my Fall for Cotton project is done! Have you guys made a color palette? Or do you have favorite colors you wear all the time?
Until next time,
