With the change of every season, I always take some time to reflect on my wardrobe. The goals that I have, the way I am using my items, the colors I am drawn to, all of it.
I’ve always created mood boards to get general ideas of what excites me, but never have I made them in terms of color and abstract feelings. Seems obvious right? But there is a first for everything.
Once I did, it made all the difference!
One thing I focused on doing differently this time around was developing mood boards purely based on one color spectrum per board and I made them based on colors I’m wanting to add into my wardrobe more-so this season.
The three I ended up with was winter whites, nature greens, and browns/oranges/pinks (okay maybe not all of them are based in one color).
I’m probably forever enamored with winter whites, but I stayed away from them in the past because I could never really find white pants that made me feel the way these images do. Vintage, sophisticated, minimal etc. But I am working hard to find the right pant to make my all-white dreams happen.
In the meantime, I’m letting myself get whisked away in a white and cream monochrome mood board, with all the feels of natural and light. Keeping in mind that fall doesn’t have to mean dark colors. It’s simple to put together a creamy look and fall-ready it by adding brown accents and cozy warm neutrals.
For my second mood board, I focused on nature greens.
Green has been my favorite color for a long time, and also what I would consider my signature color. There is something about it that is grounding for me, and it’s an added plus that it highlights my eyes and makes my skin perk up (who doesn’t love that?).
I feel connected spiritually with God through nature and the plants and greenery in my living spaces so it makes sense that green would be a go-to for me. And this season, I am really up-ing the amount of green I add into my wardrobe, letting it range anywhere from emerald to army.
Moving on to my last mood board based in brown, orange, and pink – I’ve found myself really loving the blend of these colors and I plan to let them into my wardrobe more moving forward.
In the past, I relied on black as my main neutral, but I am learning that browns, oranges, and pinks can also play as a neutral when they are less saturated in color.
I can see a lot of fun coming out of adding these colors to my wardrobe along with more green, and I’m excited to see the results.
And that’s all I’ve got! The three general concepts behind where I am moving in my wardrobe based on color Mood Boards.
If you find yourself wanting to create your own mood boards based in color I would suggest starting by typing a general color in the search engine of Pinterest like “green”. This was how I found images that weren’t fashion related to add in! And after that, I searched things like “all green outfits,” or “monochromatic green outfits.” Then I created separate boards based on colors that were speaking to me!
It’s a simple thing, but it can be so fun to create little worlds in terms of color, and I hope you experiment with your own color stories too!
So much love,
