Page 2 in the conversation "Style shift and tweaking the colour palette…" by Runcarla
I love your systematic approach to shifting your style inspiration and it so inspires me! I love the blend of saturated earthy and heathered colours you have here - they work so well to ground/lighten an outfit. and I love the idea of colour palettes and translating them into flat sets - I might have to try that!
Interesting wardrobe changes - love new direction but as others noted miss your signature red pieces.
Fab new outfits- very creative and soothing looks.
Your work on your closet is showing - you have always had great style but I feel a calm confidence showing through here. Your palate is fantasic, original, and suits the tailored, classic, 1940s direction.
Having these complements in lilac and dusky camel means your closet is very cohesive.
I have more pieces than you (somwhere in the 90s - excluding scarves and gear but including bags, shoes and clothing) I add somewhere from 20-35 pieces a year most year, including gear. Sitting at 24 already for this year of which 11 are active or outdoors gear (and new slippers) so 13 into my main closet.
I think we can have moods with our wardrobes; pumpkin orange was my signature colour for about five years but this was purely due to two cardigans and one hat (I wore out the first cardigan and replaced it with the second - sometimes you don't need much for a colour to go a long way).
How interesting! I agree with Sal, there's a sureness about your style that is so appealing. I enjoyed reading about this evolution, how it is coming about, and seeing your palette and inspo pics. Well done, Carla.
Great colors for you - soothing but slightly unexpected - and I like the outfits you posted. What a fun way to experiment with color.
Sal, your palettes and outfits are so lovely. Sal summed it up perfectly when she said "I feel a calm confidence showing through here. Your palate is fantasic, original, and suits the tailored, classic, 1940s direction."
I'm going to add two words to this: "peaceful" and "British".Love love love your curly hair!
@ Mary Beth - ‘British’ is the best compliment! For good or ill, rightly or wrongly. I’m an Anglophile the way some folks crush on French Girl style.
