Color Me Smitten: Nude

I’m excited to announce a new addition to our Editorial Calendar: Color Me Smitten- a once monthly column where it’s all eyes on my current color obsession. Though the content will vary from month to month (sometimes focusing on apparel and accessories, sometimes on décor, and other times on a combination of the two), the focus remains the same: What’s beautiful?  What’s “in”? & What’s all but haunting me?

At the moment, I can’t get enough of this camel-nude-sienna-y color.  Sure, it’s not a smack you in the face kind of palette, but is that really so wrong?  I say phooey to the banish-the-beige movement.  Beige colors are good…necessary even.  Using it head to toe (or floor to ceiling, for that matter), might have snoozefest potential, but the right shade is anything but boring.  I chose some simple pieces below that would work wonders as the base of a killer outfit or as a really versatile accessory.
