Color Story

My Personal Photos

Chanel Necklace, Banana Republic Sweater, Luca Luca Skirt, Wolford Merino Ribbed Tights 

If there is one thing I love about autumn dressing it's the rich colors and textures. I've been anxiously awaiting wearing tweeds and woolen fabrics. I adore jackets and skirts in woven nubby textures. We're having a mild ease into autumn, but I've slowly started wearing my favorite textured pieces. I love the intricate woven texture of this skirt. It's crafted in such a way that the weave of the skirt becomes a detail of its' own. Most importantly, this skirt is lined properly in a beautiful silk. I rely on Luca Luca for luxurious skirts in fall fabrics. Luca Luca is synonymous with ladylike, sophisticated and elegant clothing with clean lines. We're talking about clothing for grown ups, which is always refreshing.

Navy has been pulling at my heartstrings for some time. I know a lot of people find navy limiting, but I love it with this salmon colored sweater. It's one of those color combinations that instantly lifts my spirits. 

Hope you are all having a good week. I must say, I'm so touched by your birthday wishes and emails. My birthday is today, but I have very sweet friends who have been celebrating with me all week. 


  1. Lovely outfit - so classy. That pink is so flattering - perfect with your skin tone.
    I hope you have a fantastic time celebrating your birthday :)

  2. Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day :) I adore navy too! I love the colour combination of navy and pink :) The navy is perfect for when black would be too harsh.

    Love, Vanilla

  3. Happy birthday Lindsay! I hope there will be cake involved, and perhaps a balloon or two :)

  4. Ammu- Thank you. I always feel very classy and pulled together when I wear this outfit. It’s funny how clothing can make you feel that way.

    I’m the worst at figuring out which colors look best against my skin tone. I just thought the color was pretty and then my friend pointed out that it’s a good color for me. I’ve been wearing this color ever since.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes!!!

    Vanilla - notes from my closet- Thank you! I agree with you about navy. Sometimes black (especially in very streamlined silhouettes) can be too harsh. Love navy and pink too.
    Prêt à Porter P- Thank you! Hope you enjoyed your NY trip.

    Maja Piraja-Thank you and yes to balloons and cupcakes! Glad you’re feeling better!!!

  5. O frabjous day. Enjoy!

  6. India- Thank you!!! You're very kind.

  7. Well, looking at your outfit posts, I think you have got your colours down pat :) I think eggplant/plum would look amazing on you too. I noticed the salmon because it's a hard colour for most people to pull off. I wear a lot of pink, but nothing in that shade, just doesn't work on my skin.

    I totally know what you mean about clothing helping you feel pulled-together. I wore my new Carven skirt for the first time this morning - it's finally cool enough to wear wool in Delhi - and I felt instantly ready for the day ahead.

    I hope you had a lovely birthday!

  8. Goooooorgeous necklace, girl.

    and Happy B-day.
    We wish you lots of love.

  9. Happy birthday!! Lovely look. I love that kind of skirts but they look bulky on me because of my hips. I am spanish with curves everywhere which it could be good sometimes but it's bad for textured bottoms...

  10. This sweater seems so comfy and sweet ... The colour is perfect.

  11. Ammu- Thank you! I love eggplant and plum- so pretty in the fall. I've been eyeing a plum cashmere sweater lately.

    Salmon is a hard color to pull off, but there really is a pink out there for everyone. I love that you wear pink!

    So glad the weather finally cooled off and you wore the Carven skirt. You must have been dying to wear it. I actually wore it this week too (for the first time since June). It's such a pulled together/polished look.

    I did have a lovely birthday- thank you! I'm really looking forward to the year ahead.

    Saint Folie- Thank you! I l never get tired of wearing this necklace.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes. You're so sweet!

  12. Wow, you look very ladylike. Happy birthday for yesterday!

  13. lunaday-Thank you, thank you!

    I know exactly what you mean. These nubby textures certainly add volume. I love how you describe being Spanish- so beautiful:)

    Emma S.- Thank you. It's very comfy and easy to wear. So versatile!

    Chuck- Thanks! Ladylike is always a good thing in my book.

  14. Happy birthday! Love your creativity with navy, which I'm just starting to experiment with. I'm still a hardcore fan of navy and black, but I really want to branch out later on to keep myself from getting bored with my navy staples!

  15. Happy Birthday Lindsay!! :)
    I wish you all the best and I hope you had a wonderful day. As usual, your outfit is perfect and classy! The sweater's color is beautiful and looks very good on you!

    Encore Joyeux Anniversaire,
    Bisous bisous!

  16. 0000- Thank you!

    I love navy with black- it's one of my favorite color combinations.

    You should definitely play around with navy colored combinations. It looks so good with so many unexpected colors.

    Camille S.- Thank you! I did have a wonderful day!

    Thank you- this is one of my go-to classy outfits. Love this sweater.

  17. The texture of the skirt is beautiful! I like the way it looks with the sweater and the colors in your necklace.

  18. Austere- Thank you! I think autumn is all about working different textures.

  19. Happy belated birthday! And I never tire of seeing that Chanel necklace on you - such a perfect piece :)

  20. Katherine- Thank you! I love those pieces that you never get tired of wearing.
