The word grenadine makes me think of the lovely Shirley Temples my neighbor would make for me as a child. What a refreshing drink! In this instance though, the color is perfect for fall. It’s so warm and powerful! Definitely an attention-getter. PANTONE released their color trends earlier this year and I am loving the brighter than usual colors in the palette. Not only do the colors excite me, but the thought of cooler weather does too. Texas is hot y’all and I wouldn’t mind a drop in temperature!
One thing to invest in for fall is a beautiful peacoat and why not have one in grenadine? It certainly would make a statement. One of my favorite gifts from the hubs was a red peacoat. He got it for me just before our trip to NYC at Christmastime. Granted I didn’t get to wear it much because it was unusually warm that weekend. I can’t wait to pull it out this winter.
When I shop I’m always looking for tops that can pull double duty. Work and play! This mixed stripe v-neck sweater from Loft is great for the office with a pair of dress pants. The sleeves are an excellent length, especially if your office tends to be chilly 😉 The sweater has a lot of stretch so you may be able to size down comfortably. The color is called Forever Navy, but it’s so close to black it’s really hard to tell.
I wore this outfit to brunch while in New Orleans so it’s just as easy to dress down. A pair of skinny jeans or shorts works. Add heels for a little extra.
Check back Friday for a couple pictures from our weekend in New Orleans. Until next post…xoxo Becca
