I am a little behind Katerina's Color Challenge, so far I posted several versions of the monochrome non-neutral theme, but I haven't tackled any of the other ones yet. Since I am on leave this week with tons of errands to run and small events to go to, thus wearing two different outfits on most days, it is the perfect time to catch up.

The theme here is Fall Neutrals, which for me (as base of my fall capsule) are navy, cream and various shades of brown (chocolate next to my face, any other, such as rust, elsewhere). I decided that all the outfits on this theme must have some brown, with addition of navy or cream or both, since without brown, navy & cream would look more like spring. Hence all the outfits became interpretations of a recent Outfit Formula Angie posted, Bits of Brown for Fall. I tried to stick to solid clothing pieces (with one exception in the final outfit), and use patterned accessories to tie the colors. (Note: it has been cloudy with bad light for photos, so photos were not taken in real time. I had to wait for some sun - first time today in 5 days- to try to get some half-decent shots. Hence the wrinkles as the items have been folded on the chair waiting for the sun, they were not wrinkled when actually worn).

Here are 5 outfits on this theme worn since the past Saturday (same navy crossbody bag and silver watch worn for all of them, so the bag is not always photographed):
1) #1,2&3: rust satin slip skirt, navy linen short sleeve sweater, navy/rust silk scarf, rust booties. The Rag &Bone booties were a lucky find at the Rack, at 90% off. Considering how well they fit my skinny ankles, which is super rare, I couldn't leave them behind.
2) #4: Brown wool cropped wrap blazer, navy/cream herringbone linen cropped pants, navy/brown snakeskin booties
3) #5,6&7: Brown sleeveless turtleneck knit, cream wide leg pants with brown side stripe, cream oxfords, and worn briefly when it cooled off, navy leather moto
4) #8: denim shirt worn open over cream rib knit, brown cropped pants, brown lizard textured booties, silk snakeskin scarf that combines brown, cream & faded denim
5) #9: Navy blazer belted with brown belt over patterned pleated skirt, same knit and booties as above. The skirt is paisley in shades of navy, cream and medium brown, and I got it last year specifically for this capsule.

You can probably see why I am getting a brown bag soon. The navy crossbody here is on it's last breath, so I have ordered a replacement.
