Potter's Clay Bodysuit.
Potter's Clay is one of the biggest colors of Fall 2016. It is like a very dark Burnt Orange. I would describe it as the child of burgundy and orange. My new (and currently only) bodysuit is indeed in this hot Fall shade - Potter's Clay. I love how Pantone named this particular color this year because it describes it perfectly. Well, while I love my bodysuit I don't necessarily like (at all) how I look in it, at least not in this outfit. This year I have gained a few pounds I have not been proud of and this bodysuit tucked into these jeans makes my mid-section and hips look even larger. I have had these jeans in my closet for years. I was undecided whether to get rid of them or not and these photos definitely convinced me to. They make my hips wide, are not flattering on me and I don't care for their capri length. So off they go bad-looking jeans and I am calling this outfit a failure. But you know it is good to post our not-so-great fashion moments too, keeping it real and keeping us humble at the same time.
It was such a gorgeous, warm, mid-60s Fall day as these photos testify. These are a couple of weeks old, we have had even warmer days since then (up to 80). I would love to wear this bodysuit again this Summer but tucked into a High-Waisted Skirt with some heels. Note to self though: Potter's Clay pairs very nicely with leopard.

I shared my love for Burgundy last week. Well today (and tomorrow - stay tuned) is all about Potter's Clay. Below I compiled a widget of a dozen or so favorites in this gorgeous, rich, rustic color of 2016. I wouldn't mind if any or better yet - ALL - of these magically appear in my closet, this year. These are all from some of my favorite brands too that I have shopped and loved for years.
