She is feeling a little bit… subdued. She was strangely drawn to this painting:
She decided to embrace her feelings of reserve and quiet, and thus decided that this was how she was going to plan her upcoming wardrobe purchases for autumn and winter.
It wasn’t that she really needs new clothes – she’s got a good base of her favorite neutrals. But she felt that it was time for a good snuggle, and a scarf of two to hold her tight… She could give lots of reasons for feeling the way she does right now – the weather? the change of seasons? At any rate, she’s going to do a bit of shopping…
After much watching, and some almost ENDLESS searching for scarves, these are here choices. She’s (quietly) very pleased…
She accomplished exactly what she desired – a number of new outfits, without a lot of fuss and effort. Sometimes it’s important to keep things easy!
Maybe a trip will perk her up a little bit? At least she won’t have to think too much about what to pack!

I didn't see the maroon in there at all. And I never would have thought to put it with that gray-blue or that mustard. You are brilliant.
ok but… do we really wear scarves with turtlenecks? She puts the scarf in her hair, or on her handbag, or uses it as a belt, right?

In Chicago, in January, yes. But for most people, most of the time, your options would make much more sense!
I love these three accent colors, varieties of red, blue, and yellow, but would prefer to see them being used with a warm common wardrobe , however that would not reflect this painting .

WithOUT a lot of fuss?
Janice Riggs says
Of course! Thanks for catching that – I fixed it…
A trip will always perk "her" up! Lovely, simple additions of three colored sweaters and two scarves. Brilliant idea for a quick, easy way to add some color to my basic black wardrobe. Many thanks, Janice
I really like this. Simple, polished, warm, plenty of variety. I will study this one.

As usual, you are amazing. A few simple additions add up to a lot of new options. :)

"Nature dead on a chair"?
Janice Riggs says
That's an exactly literal translation! But, in fact, "nature morte" is translated figuratively as "still life." Which doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's better than dead nature…
Janice, I love the palettes you coordinate with a mix and blend of both warm and cool tones! I think that kind of fits a preference for me. Of course, I get excited from all of the examples you share and they always inspire me!! Thanks so much!!

These are very powerful because they demonstrate how, with a solid base of neutrals, you can do something different with your wardrobe without expending a lot of time or money. I do have to say though that the chambray shirt always feels a little out of place.

Thanks for your post! I think there are many other people who are interested in them just like me! How long does it take to complete this article? I have read through other blogs, but they are cumbersome and confusing. I hope you continue to have such quality articles to share! Good luck!
