Fall Trend Guide Part 1: Color Pallete

Honestly, after going through tons of designer runway shows on the web, I've concluded that this is probably the most colorful fall season yet. I see lots of jewel tones mixed with pewter, whites, light taupe and light pastel colors with and dark colors. And since I am still enjoying those fresh spring colors and slowly warming up to those dark romantic ones, I am ready (and excited) for fall!

My Fall Color Palette:

Still loving mint. Also, my new inspiration is the black added as a "pop" of color.

Nicole Richie for Macy's

I looove Nicole's boho chic style and jewelry line, House of Harlow, so when I first heard about this, I was really excited to check it out! (Officially in stores and online now).

Overall, I enjoyed the collection and thought it really exuded her signature style. I wish they would have used a different background in these pictures though, it's really hard to tell what some of the pieces look like.

Well anyways, here are my favorites:

Pieces Range from $39-$129. Source: Macy's

I don't think I'll actually buy anything but if I were to, it would the the leather sleeve top. 

Does anyone else plan on shopping her collection?
