Do You Like “Pink ‘n Plum”?

So, how do you feel about this color combination for fall?  I personally love pink and plum together.  I can appreciate the usual muted (or less intense) fall colors of russet, gold, brown, and pumpkin, but I sure do miss pinks and purples that are hard to find this time of year.  Since plum is a muted color, I think it works rather nicely for this season.

At the end of July I pulled together some early fall-ish feeling fabrics and the color plum is present in a lot of them.  Yay!  I can get inspired here.

Here is my little princess, Gina modeling “Pink ‘n Plum” for you.
