Brights in Fall

First off, today was a better day, so thank God for that.  Ended with some spectacular, albeit, unexpected news, so that was just the cherry on top!  Funny how things can turn around on a dime :)

I had a comment on my Facebook page for WorkdayWeekend that asked, basically, if pastels and brights can be worn in fall and winter.  My answer was a resounding "Absolutely, yes!" so with that in mind, I put this outfit together this morning.  Like I've mentioned before, I try and purchase items that can be worn year round.  Of course there are a few sweaters and furs thrown into the mix, but for the most part, I love to put together pieces from all seasons.  You've seen every item I'm wearing in today's post on the blog before, actually.  To avoid looking like an Easter egg in, which I find perfect acceptable when it's warm out, it's nice to pair brights with similar shades of jewel tones.  You know I wear my J.Crew Linen Tippy Sweater all the dang time, so I wanted to show it paired with maroon (whoop!) jeans to make it appropriate for fall.  Although my vest is kelly green, it's still a fall item, and I felt very cheerful today in such bold and fun colors.  Maybe that was me sending the universe a message that I needed a happy day.  

Hope yours was happy, as well!
