I haven't had much time to post lately - and no real time to take
outfit photos, but I have been planning and shopping for fall/winter as
we've had our first cold snap and are expecting more cool weather soon. I've also been enjoying everyone else's WIWs and missing a few regulars that seem to be MIA.

I thought I'd share my new F/W handbag (see Finds), and main color
palette for the season (fall and winter are "one" season for me). The
bag is a warm gray with suede taupe panels on each end from Vince
Camuto. This is one of those bags that seems to have all my needs met.
Medium to small size, lightweight, leather, satchel with long strap
option, slip pockets on the outside, feet, etc.

I had a tough time deciding on the right color as I was leaning towards
the cognac, but then I realized that as much as I do like cognac on
others, for me, it isn't my best color. I ended up keeping the navy
version of the leather sneakers (changed the laces) and returning the cognac for that reason. Seems like such a basic "discovery" but ends up being pretty
important for me moving forward in my fashion purchases. I have some
dark taupe wedge booties on order to try as well - I really hope those

I tend to be doing better with cooler shades these days overall but
still have some warm tones left in my closet that I don't want to get
rid of quite yet (darn budget). Plus, my belts and jewelry (and shoes)
fall more into the neutral shades of light tan and taupe and navy and
bookend my hair which is blonde/taupe/silver at this stage.

And for fun I thought I'd include a lineup of how I've been wearing my
4 favorite bracelets in various combinations to create 11 (or more)
different options. These have all been purchased over time. The one white addition was SO helpful in bringing in the ivory color of my summer handbag and shoes into my outfits. I'm hoping the deep ink blue will be similarly useful for fall.
