I am loving these hues of neutrality. I will never tire of the color combo of black, beige, tan, creme and hunter green. Considering that it was 102 degrees today, it may or may not seem strange that my mind is on winter. Desperately wanting it to come my way, all I can do for now is dream it and will it to make an appearance sooner than later. Today’s mood board and color palette gives me that cool dawn-of-autumn feeling. I love how these colors play so nicely together and balance each other out. They remain both elegant and unassuming. This is what I would be wearing if it wasn’t 102. Dream on . . .

Gabriele Colangelo Pre-Fall ’14
I really love Gabriele Colangelo’s collection for Fall ’14. There is a great meshing of color, pattern and texture. Though the line is mostly neutral, she balances the neutral grays with pops of citrus yellow and textures like fur, pin tucking, leather trim and pleats. The line has a decidedly menswear influence to it, with it’s use of geometric shapes, silhouettes and fabrics. I’ve selected a few of my favorite looks above and created a color palette for you. This happens to be one of my all-time favorite color combos. I love how the acid yellow stands out against the neutral grays.
Would you wear any of these pieces or colors?
