INTO FALL / Color play with red leather jacket and Chanel Taupe

The warm weather has bid adieu and I've retied a string to my finger to remember to grab a jacket when leaving the house. It's been those days where the sun is shining bright during the afternoon and you'll be okay with bare arms and feet but once the sun starts to set, temperatures take a nosedive and a jacket is a necessity.

Using the dress as my canvas, I worked around the colors on it and chose to pair it with a statement red leather jacket. The red acted as the dominant color and against the pattern of the dress we have an analogous color scheme (the red and orange) as well as a complementary scheme (the red and green).  When I think of red and green I think of Christmas, and unless it actually is Christmas, I've always tried to avoid that color pairing so I am not ringing holiday spirit at odd times of the year.  However I discovered with this outfit that as long as you use off shades of red and green, in this case burgundy and lime green, it creates a really beautiful pairing.

Besides being draped over my shoulders and giving the illusion that I have four arms, the jacket actually served it's purpose in keeping me warm in the evening.  Without it, my arms would look like chicken skin from the goosebumps and that is never a pretty sight.
