Fall Color Crush – Incorporating Richer Colors Into the Wardrobe

Two weekends ago I had a major closet clean out.  I had bought four boxes of the narrow velvet hangers from Costco and my mission was to get rid of all those plastic hangers that take up way too much room.  I’m working with half of a closet right now.  The things we do for love right?  Combining households and sharing closets.  My sleeveless tops and cut out maxis were taking up space. The closet needed to be flipped for the next season.  You may have seen it on my snapchat (@meetatthebarre) but by the time I was done, my entire bed was full of hangers.  I am happy to say my closet is officially ready for the Fall and Winter.  Even if Florida hasn’t gotten the memo yet.

In my closet flip around I discovered a few gems that had been sandwiched in between other pieces and now were ready to see the light of day.  I have a serious love affair with this dark green palate right now.  I want everything in these rich jewel tones.  Pair it with a bold lip and you are ready to go.

Let’s talk about this skirt for a second.  I picked it up during the SHOPBOP sale, also can find it here on Amazon.  BB Dakota is really one of my favorite lines.  The price point is not outrageous and when the pieces go on sale, they are really affordable.  The clothes hold up well and the current styles are on point.  I got this skirt in a small.  I was a little nervous about that because with my hips I usually size up.  The medium was sold out but I’m happy to say the small fits great.  You can wear this skirt for dinner or can really glam it up for the holidays with a sparkly shirt and heels.Turquoise Top and faux leather skirt for the Fall.Jewel Tones for FallFaux leather pencil skirt

I wore this outfit to dinner with my favorite suede pumps.  They are old Nine West and sold out but I found some great similar pairs here and here under $30 here.  You don’t have to matchy match these heels to your top.  I will wear them with all black or even color block it to a bold statement color piece.  They seriously go with everything.

Add a fun pop of color to your lips and you are good to go.  These Kate Spade sunglasses on major sale have been in heavy rotation.

Do you change over your closet for each season?  What is your current favorite go to Fall color right now?  Katie was my winner of the PMD giveaway!  I have some great giveaways planned for the month of November so definitely make sure to stop by to see what fab things are happening during my two year blog anniversary month!

I had posted this look to my Instagram with liketoknowit.  Make sure you sign up to get all the details emailed to you when you like the picture on there!  I always try to preview the look before it goes live on the blog.  xoxoxo

    Oh the dreaded closet seasons switch, ugh. I remember talking with you before your wedding about trying to make extra space, the things we do for love! ;)!

    You look so femme fatale in this outfit, lady! I love the beautiful green pieces and the backdrop is gorgeous!

  2. Girl, FL definitely hasn’t gotten the memo it’s fall. I can’t believe it’s supposed to be 93 today. Ridiculous! That green color is gorgeous on you! It’s so dark I thought it was black in a few pics but it really is the perfect color for fall! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. Really love that skirt on you – it’s so pretty and can be dressed up for a holiday party or down for work!! The backdrop of the photos is gorgeous!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Um let’s talk about these photos! Heart emojis. I love this shade of green!

  5. Ashley says:

    I’m loving BB Dakota’s pieces this fall and this skirt looks so luxe! The perfect work outfit!

  6. Jenn says:

    Love those pumps girl! What a great color!
    And you look like a straight up model in these photos!!! That hubby of yours is a great photographer! :)

  7. Loving those dark greens! When I moved down here several years ago, I actually purged a lot of my winter stuff (I kept some for when traveling up north). It just doesn’t make sense to have a ton of boots and sweaters when we realistically only can wear them a few days out of the year when a cold front comes through. So, I like incorporating certain pieces into my wardrobe with the changing seasons like ankle booties and darker/richer colors.

  17. Your outfit is stunning! I love that emerald shade this season. I’m a bit behind on my closet clean out progress over here. It seems when I start putting the summer clothes away, we have an unseasonably warm day…not that I’m complaining about that!


  18. OK first of all, LOVE your outfit. I mean love everything that you’re wearing and would totally wear it myself. That color is beautiful on you too. I think it also happens to be a great color for blondes. :-) Did you get that Lush tunic too? I mean I seriously love mine. Thanks for sharing lady and I hope that you are having a great day so far! :-)

  19. you look so profesh!! i love it!! you look gorgeous!

  20. Loooove love love this skirt!! So fabulous! And aren’t those velvet hangers the best? I did the switch over last year and it was the best decision!

  21. Kristen says:

    girl i feel you on the limited closet space. we have 2 extra closets in our spare rooms, but i don’t want to spill over into those, because then it would make it even harder to purge down the line lol. this colour is absolutely gorgeous on you!

  22. Paula says:

    Love your skirt, looks great on you! I love those velvet hangers too, they’re seriously the best.

  24. Closet switch out?! I haven’t done that since I lived way up North! Doejs it get cold enough in FL for a closet switch? It either doesn’t in TX or I own so few “cold” weather items that they remain in the mix of all my summer stuff. Now that you’ve got me thinking about it though, I’m so happy I live in a climate that doesn’t require that nonsense because jeez it was a ton of work! Loving that green. I was just looking at a pair of Hunter boots in that exact jewel tone of green to purchase, actually! It’s beautiful, and looks great on blondes ;)

  25. Jaclyn says:

    Those suede shoes are gorgeous! I am loving this rich green color.

  26. Nadine says:

    I am obsessed with jewel tones every fall. They are what looks best with my pasty skin color haha! This top and skirt look absolutely fabulous on you!!! Probably top 5 outfits ever! Complete fall perfection!

  27. Green has always been such an overlooked fall color. I’m psyched that it’s blowing up this year! I’ve been gravitating toward the olives and military shades, and never thought about these deep jewel tones. Green can be tricky with red heads. (; I’ll have to try on of these shades out next time I’m out! You’ve got some fab picks!

  28. Yessss I love everything this colour, I’m actually wearing it right now! I find it transitions so well throughout the seasons and flatters every single skin tone! Paired with that skirt and those sunnies – serious perfection!!

    Don’t you love when you find clothes during closer clean out?! I hate having to switch clothes for seasons but on the plus, I always find something I forgot I had! I want to switch over to the velvet hangers too! I love all the pieces in this outfit! How perfect are those shoes with the top?!

  34. I absolutely love that color combo! It is like the perfect vibe for November. And those heels are amazing!!!

  35. Tia says:

    Living in Florida I never think about changing my closet as the weather stays the same most of the year. But with fashionable friends like you, I am beginning to see how even a Floridian can adjust my wardrobe for Fall. This outfit is super cute and I love love love the shirt. #tbbloggers
