fall focus: midnight hues with nautica x amazon fashion.

-sponsored by nautica and amazon fashion.

honestly, it doesn’t matter where i am or what’s on my plate — life is always better to me in the fall. the weather, the vibe of the city, and (of course) the fashion… it all just puts me in the best mood imaginable. this season, i’m slowing down and taking time to really make sure i’m enjoying all that the season has to offer—from cozy netflix-and-chill sessions to strolls through soho’s leaf-adorned streets—and i plan on staying properly dressed for all of that fun ahead.

this month, i’ll be linking up with my friends at nautica to get into that fall frame of mind, and to kick things off, they’re helping me get my color palette in the perfect shape.

around this time of year, i always start falling back in love with the magic of “midnight hues”—basically, that’s my term for the darkest variations of the colors of the rainbow: burgundy, navy, hunter green, ochre, plum (you get the picture). not to get poetic, but they kind of remind me of the changing leaves; plus, the lack of brightness echoes with those grey skies that i love so much.

luckily for those of us here in NYC, we’ve had a surprise spell of perfect temperatures, so for this outfit, i broke out a burgundy + navy striped long sleeve polo from nautica and grounded the look with a foundation of black, courtesy of the jeans and shoes. and up top, i complemented the muted tones with extra pops of color from the cap and turtleneck. color palette: handled.
