I hope you enjoyed your summer as much as I have. I've went golfing, kayaking, and biking, and having a blast in summer fun clothing.
The stores are readily changing over into fall clothing so if you're looking for some great summer sales, now is the time.
For those of you who are ready to step into the new season and the lusciousness of fall clothing - have you thought about what you might add? I l believe in being intentional. Having a plan and clarity can take your shopping experience from overwhelm to enjoyable.
When transitioning into a new season, I like to think about what worked well last year or maybe what do you wish you had or felt was missing?
Maybe it's a new silhouette, a new neutral or accent color, additional accessories? I know many of my clients are enjoying the addition of navy with so many years of all black.
For Fall, I would like to introduce you to Grenadine, one of Pantone's Top 10 Colors for Fall. Grenadine, an off-shoot of the RED family is definitely trending. You will see many varieties of Grenadine... blue reds, some a little more burgundy and possibly a little amber.
RED positively gets you noticed when you walk into a room. It attracts others to you without saying a word. Want to captivate an audience instantly - wear RED.

5 TIPS To Elevate & Express RED in Your 2017 Fall Wardrobe!
RED can be a powerful non-verbal color. Have you ever thought of using Color as a tool? You can express yourself just by wearing a particular color. Color carries with it a universal symbol.
RED: Exciting, energizing, sexy, passionate, powerful, courageous, assertive, adventurous, motivating
BRICK RED: Earthy, warm, strong, sturdy, established
DEEP RED: Rich, elegant, refined, expensive, mature, luxurious, robust
A Skirt Or Blouse is a great way to add a pop of RED. The skirt becomes the focal point of your outfit. The blouse becomes the accent to your neutral jacket or pant.
Don't forget that RED pairs beautifully with many neutral shades such as black, charcoal, navy, camel, deep greens or taupe to name a few.
Not a huge fan of Red? Add one RED accessory with your neutral outfit.
