The temperatures are not so springy here yet, but for the sake of consistency, I used the title from the outfit formula post. Cinnamon and other spice colors are far from by best, as I suit really cool colors. I am employing the standard technique of wearing them away from my face, or incorporating them in a print with my "good" colors, such as navy. Here are three pretty loose interpretations of the first, third and fourth suggestions from the Friday's post. They were all worn for casual outings this long weekend, first one to spend time with my friends and their young children (age 3 and 5) on a local playground and the others for errands.

1) My version of "CINNAMON, LIGHT BLUE, DENIM AND WHITE" omits the light blue, and switches some things around, as anything in a solid spice color on my upper body is no-go. On the top there is an old navy/cinnamon striped sweater pattern mixed with a silk scarf in same colors, with a navy cream tweed puffer. Bottom of the outfit is the same as in the post: dark denim wide crops and white sneakers, which in my case are high-tops, because it was cold. The bag has the perfect colors for this scheme: navy crossbody with striped strap that has navy and several spice colors.

2) My version of "CINNAMON AND NAVY" uses a sweater instead of a tunic. It consists of color-blocked sweater in navy, cream and cinnamon, paired with classic cinnamon pants and matching booties, toped with navy velvet puffer, and finished with navy beret and same bag as above.

3) Finally, my version of "CINNAMON AND BLACK" switches up the colors from the post, with black cashmere sweater and rust (?) slip skirt, topped with black faux fur moto. I used the same cinnamon booties as above, my trusted black crossbody and tied it all up with cream silk scarf with black cats and cinnamon trim.
