Earth and Whimsy: Color Palette for Fall 2015

The one good thing about the end of summer is discovering the beautiful new, fall color palettes. I always feel inspired by the deeper, richer autumn colors and this year is no exception — from sophisticated, timeless neutrals to pops of nostalgia and playfulness.
