No matter how free-spirited and fearless I tend to feel during the fevered heat of summer, the sobering cool weather of autumn always brings a bit of emotional reigns. When sets of responsibilities return, rules and regulations seep their way back into my routine, and most of the time, my wardrobe.
This year, when fall arrived and the day grew shorter, when sunlight lost its luster and the clouds threatened my inner brights, I think of that Tagore quote, ““Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
I consciously made a point to refuse fall’s rigid structure and faded daylight to quietly overtake my life, so I can continue to embrace the flexibility and play of summer all throughout the year. A perpetual bright-colors-lover, I wanted to introduce audacious bolds into my fall closet, starting with royal blue and golden mustard. It didn’t hurt that this gorgeous Phillip Lim for Target found me on a Sunday morning grocery mission for eggs.
