5 Fabulous Fall Color Palettes!

So this past Sunday was the first official day of Fall, you guys! Can you feel my excitement? Um, yeah. I'm pretty excited. Not only has the weather cooled off a little here in Georgia, but I've also started gearing up for all of the upcoming Fall festivities. I've pulled out my favorite boots, I've decorated our mantle with all kinds of Fall pretties, and I even treated myself to a new scarf the other day!

Fall is my favorite. Not only do I love it because it's the season we said ''I do,'' but there are also many other reasons! Like for starters, I don't think I'll ever tire of driving through the mountains to see the changing leaves. And pumpkin spiced lattes? Are those not the best? Oh, and I can't go without mentioning our annual trip to the pumpkin patch (complete with hayrides and apple cider!). 

But nothing quite captures the essence of Fall quite like the colors! They're warm, they're cozy and if I'm being honest, they're really the sort of colors that I gravitate towards most.

Want to know what some of my favorite Fall color palettes are? Well, you're in luck because today I'm sharing 5 fabulous Fall color palettes. So pour yourself a cup of tea and get your pinning finger ready, because these pretty palettes are sure to put you in a fabulous Fall mood!

First up on the list is this unexpected pairing of shades of orange, purple and brown. For me, these colors just scream Fall. But at the same time, it's not a color palette you see every day! Warm, spicy, and all kinds of pretty, this palette truly does have a way of easily blending eclectic and rustic styles. And for that reason alone, I'm in love!

Next up we have this gorgeous palette of cranberry and mustard. This palette is just exuding Fall, is it not? I'm so in love with this full wreath and what's not to love about this photo booth backdrop? I love the big bold statement it makes! And those caramel apples on branches? Are those not the cutest things you've ever seen?

Fall is a time to use dramatic colors. And this palette which combines jet black with shades of brown and mustard really is just that. It's got an intensity to it. But at the same time there are some really great rustic touches that soften it just a bit. 

I love these colors for many reasons. And I'm hoping you can see why? This reddish brown color really is amazing. Anyone else agree? To me, it embodies all that is Fall and then some. I'm so obsessed with these gorgeous accessories. Like that sweet little bow belt and this gorgeous headpiece.

Last but not least, we have this lovely palette which combines cranberry, gray and just a touch of brown. I love it for many reasons, but mostly I'm attracted to this because I feel like cranberry and gray really are a perfectly balanced palette. Cranberry is vibrant and full of warm energy while gray is cool, sleek and understated. Not to mention the perfect neutral for this palette.

So what do you think? Have I convinced anyone to pull out your sweaters and your chunky scarves? I sure hope so! Be sure to leave me a comment below and let me know if you have any Fall traditions yourself? I'd love to hear about what you love to do during this fabulous season! Oh, and which of these color palettes are you finding yourself drawn to on this fine Fall day?
