fall forecast {aubergine}

Ok, so if you follow me on twitter you may know that I am not ready to see all the fall clothes in the stores and online boutiques. However, it was quite chilly last night and it allowed me to give in to the allure of all the velvet and suede. So, I decided to at least look and immediately noticed that one color seemed to be all over---deep aubergine.

Such a moody and dramatic color is perfect for chilly fall evenings.

Are you ready for the fall season and the styles it brings? I am definitely not ready but these lovely purple pieces gave me hope that I will be ready when fall does come.

Gorgeous. I have only recently discovered this color, or at least its name. We have barely had a summer in Cleveland it has been raining so much. But, I think we are due for some hot weather in August. I will be ready for fall after that.

Oh I'm not ready for the fall, but I am ready for that deep plum shade so if I need it to be fall in order to wear it I'm totally ok with that.

Definitely my favorite fall color ever. The only reason I'm ready for fall fashion is that it means i'm getting closer to having this baby. I'm hoping that i can get my body back in shape to catch the last month of fall fashion, before we head into winter!

I'm typically not a fan of Purple (It's a sports thing) but these are gorgeous. And the fact that you call them Aubergine makes everything ok. Love the handbag!
