My Favorite Fall Colors

Join the Connie Can Crop monthly blog hop for tons of stocking related holiday project ideas! We have prizes too, so hop along today!


I am so excited to be on the verge of my favorite time of year! I can’t wait to pull out my hunter’s jacket, rust-colored trenchcoat and my jean jacket – plus, well, JEANS! I was meant for fall, and wish it could be like this all year. I love the colors and the smells. Even the “wrap and peel” days where it starts off cold, but the coat and cardigan come off later because the sun is out and it’s just glorious!

The Craft Collabs group is sharing our collective love of the season with our own favorite color combinations. Mine are a departure from traditional, but, still, something that is fresh, timeless, and quintessential fall.

My Favorite Fall Colors

I seriously love a good shade of rusty orange, and I’m so glad to see that it’s really on-trend this year! My combo starts there and grows into a shade of bright orange on one end and a rich plum purple on the other. Oh, but I don’t stop there! How about a fun peacock blue? And what would fall be without GOLD?! 

So, what does that look like all together? Let’s take a look!

Well, this is a video hop, after all, so let’s take a look at how this came together!
