Autumn 2016 Colors:
With the start of school just around the corner, the entire family is gearing up for a busy fall semester! My son will be starting his sophomore year in high school this year :0 I can't believe the time is going by so quickly these days! My fiance and I both made the decision to continue our education too and that means that he will beginning the challenging road to obtaining a Phd. and I will be starting my journey towards completing an MBA :)
I know that we are going to have a difficult road ahead of us, but I'm excited about what our future holds!... That's why I also have to stay on my toes- prepping everyone for the start of classes with school supplies, textbooks, & new school threads. I don't get a lot of time to stop and enjoy the changing of the seasons during the fall and in Texas, there isn't much to speak of when it comes to Autumn to begin with :0
What do I mean? We tend to "skip" the season all together, going straight into Winter; there just aren't many days that offer up true Fall weather in Texas. I hear that the fall foliage is quite beautiful during the upcoming months of September- though November...but it's something that we usually miss out on in my area.
This is why I make a point around this time each year, to snag some new colorful Fall outfits, nail colors, & cosmetics- I even like to throw in some pretty burgundy or rich red highlights in my hair ;) I love using guides [ like the one pictured above ] to see what the new seasonal shades are and Pantone normally puts out a great one! Two of my fav pics for nails are Coralette & Ivory Keys. Check out 2 of my top nail shades from ORLY, below:

If you'd rather go for a more relaxed feel & lighter shade- the above ORLY polish in Barely There, is the perfect choice! This clean, white shade avoids being over bright and is just the right white shade- making it right on trend with the new Autumn colors of the season ;)
