“Color Me Fall” Trend Report

Fall is just around the corner and I’m deep into fall colors already. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen me wear a gorgeous red wine color many times and I seriously can’t get enough of it! I even wear it on my lips every chance I get. I am obsessing over the Fall 2016 colors from Pantone’s color report, but this color somehow didn’t make the cut. Fortunately, as a Seattle blogger, my local shopping center at Pacific Place knows what’s going on. They added Washington Cabernet to the list! That’s why I’m so excited to partner with Pacific Place and share with you some amazing fall trends and events going on this month.

If you haven’t already checked out Pantone’s color report you’re missing out on some trending colors to inspire your fall wardrobe. Pacific Place chose the best of the best and is featuring six  amazing fall colors. I’m wearing Washington Cabernet proudly with this crochet lace detailed top I got from their Express store. By featuring this wine color I can’t get enough of, I believe it brings out the best of fall colors.Pantone Fall Color Report | Pencil Skirt | Work WearPantone Fall Color Report | Pencil Skirt | Work Wear

Pacific Place created an amazing “Color Me Fall” guide full of fall color trends and is surely one to follow whether you live in Seattle or not. However, if you do live in Seattle, you’re extra lucky because I scoured their stores and these gorgeous colors are everywhere! Between a calming Riverside blue, a vibrant Lush Meadow green, a muted Dusty Cedar pink, or a rich Spicy Mustard yellow, there’s a color for everyone. Everywhere from luxury brands like Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Coach, to some of my other favorites like J. Crew, Express, Fransesca’s, and Something Silver are all found at Pacific Place.

Another Pantone color Snakeskin gray proudly made the cut because it truly is the perfect fall neutral. This gorgeous BCBGMAXAZRIA bandage skirt is essential and can be dressed up or down easily. I’m already thinking of all the ways I’m going to be able to style this pencil skirt for the fall. Not being able to get enough of this neutral color, I even picked up this crossbody saddle bag in Francesca’s at Pacific Place. The color pairs with all of the other fall colors so easily. Whether it be bright or muted, it can easily be called the perfect fall handbag.

    Great Post and great collaboration! You made me look at the colors; that’s for sure. So thanks for linking Pantone & Pacific Place’s Pallet.
    I have totally noticed that color on your Insta! Both in your dresses and on the lips, for this reason I felt very engaged by you mentioning that.
    It was a pretty cool opportunity to be the first to comment on this one. I accidentally had notifications from Bloglovin’ on my phone and when I saw it was your post I figured why not read and comment immediately?! 1am; Your number 1 Fan here!!

    In case anyone is debating on purchasing this outfit… just let me confirm: You all know that no one can yoke a blouse like Express yokes a blouse and BCBG invited the Bandage Dress/skirt way back when we still called them “Bandage.” Old school. Don’t believe me? Google the word, they still use it for SEO 😉 Am I showing my age? … Back to the point, Molly made some top selections here.

    Love you, Goodnight! Have fun at your event. I might be in town early morning Friday killing time. I was going to ask you to coffee, but I wasn’t sure what neighborhood you moved to. Now I see that you probably have some big preparations that day. (I should text this stuff. No etiquette, I tell ya!)

      So happy you enjoyed the color palette! And I know you’ve noticed my lip color. Haha I clearly can’t stop wearing it! YES to it being called bandage! You’re the best! I love you!

    So classy! This color palette can definitely be carried over to other seasons, too, methinks!
