OOTD- The Winds Have Changed

Fall has arrived!! I have the long sleeves to prove it! I relished in the fact that I could do some slight layering, wear jeans without the summertime stickiness that makes it so uncomfortable and that I didn't even need a jacket yet. All that would complete the picture is a cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte.

You know, I'm not big on earthy tones; give me bright colors any day! However, I spotted this top and knew it would be perfect for the new season. Such a rich, saturated shade of green lends itself well with almost any color pairing I could think of: yellow like in the scarf I'm wearing, a pair of gray pants or skirt, my bright orange sweater that's been in hiding, or red, if I dare, at Christmas time. This definitely has the makings of lots of future use. I hope the other tops in my closet don't get too jealous.

Are you into earth tones, brights or both? What is one item in your wardrobe that gets tons of wear time?
