Before I started this blog, I pretty much exclusively wore bright colors regardless or trends, seasons, or other fashion rules.  As the years have gone by and I started to pay much more attention to trends and protocols, I couldn’t help but notice the special associations seasonal colors have.  This spring I dabbled in a lot of pastels, a way to tone down an outfit without losing any edge or excitement, and this fall it’s been a series of deep jewel tones such as olive, navy, burgundy, and aubergine.  The dark hues are seasonally appropriate, but their rich shades still allow some of that bold expression that I love.
