It's finally October which means it's time for pumpkin everything, chunky sweaters, and corn mazes with the girls! We don't care how "basic" it is to be obsessed with all things Fall, it's hard not to be with the weather changing, the amazing golden hour lighting, and the coziness of curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book. Our clothing, interior design, and schedules are all changing with the season. We at Côte draw inspiration from colors we see in nature, on our explore feeds on Instagram, and the Fashion Week runways to choose styles we think you'll love, put together photo shoot color stories, and pretty much everything else we do here. So we decided to share some colors and trends we love this season with you, as well as give you guys a little something you can keep on your phone to draw inspiration from! Yep, we're giving you guys some new Fall inspired phone wallpapers so you can always have a little piece of Côte with you. And the colors this year are SO. GOOD.
1. Lavender Mood Board
We love all things lavender this season, or as Pantone likes to call the specific shade for this season, "crocus petal." We always have lavender out in the store for decoration, and love the way the color pops against our other earthy shades! It's a different color for Fall, but you will undoubtedly be seeing it everywhere, even at Côte! When done right, you won't be looking like you're going out for Easter lunch, the hushed tone of these lavender shades paired with some Fall reds or browns will definitely give you all the cozy vibes.
Fall reminds us of a lot of things and movies are one of them! Anyone else always think of Mean Girls when the calendar turns to October 3rd? "on October 3rd, he asked me what day it was..." So for our lavender phone wallpaper, we took inspiration from one of the best quotes from Regina George "home schooled huh, but you're like really pretty" .. I won't quote the rest because I'm sure you babes can quote the entire movie like us!
To download the the wallpaper, simply hold and click 'save image'!
2. Quetzal Green Mood Board
When you're tired of your usual burgandy color scheme for Fall, quetzal green is a great substitute to switch things up! It's dark and moody just like burgandy, and goes with blacks, browns, and creams, basically all your Fall neutrals. You've already seen this color in our Free People Calico Dress, and expect to see more as it was one of Pantone's Fall/Winter colors of the year! So get ahead of the game and start incorporating this color ASAP. You won't regret it.
Our Quetzal inspired phone wallpaper is just a friendly reminder for all you boss babes to follow your dreams. Live a life you love, love what you do, and when you're super busy, remind yourself to love life each time you look down at your phone! Hold and hit 'save image' to keep this one.
3. Valiant Poppy Mood Board
Whether it's bloggers like Sincerely Jules, Fashion Week runways, or flowers in nature, we have seen this Valiant Poppy shade almost everywhere (and we don't hate it). It's a little more muted than your usual red and did we mention it goes great with the quetzel green? Peep the Elisabetta Franchi runway look above. This red hue also made the Pantone Fall/Winter colors of the year and we are hoping this one sticks around. It's fun, vibrant, and can be toned down when paired with the right shade of brown.
Our Valiant Poppy phone wallpaper is an homage to all things us girls love for Fall! Because is it really Fall if you don't wear a chenille cardigan while drinking coffee and finding your way through a corn maze? We didn't think so either...
We hope you also love our picks for Fall colors we love, or that you learned something about Fall/Winter 2018 trends. We hope that this little glimpse of how we draw inspiration gives you a little insight into how we do things at Côte.. whether it's picking and styling clothes you babes will love, decorating our own houses for the seasons, or just having an creative outlet and getting ideas together. Mood boards are one of our favorite ways to bring ideas to life! Do you guys want to know how we put them together? Let us know, that can be a blog for another day!
Thanks babes, and make sure to follow all of our social media pages to keep up with new arrivals, trend forecasts, and everything else we like to do here!
