All right, maybe I’m taking this color obsession a little too far… Yesterday, when I was visiting my sister up in Poulsbo, Washington, we were enjoying a wonderful home-cooked lunch at her house that included many young, delicious vegetables from her garden (and a chicken). This locovore’s delight included a dish of beautiful beets, regular (or whatever the red ones are called) and golden, together on a platter, thus:
I couldn’t help it. I grabbed my camera. And now I’m sure you can see why. With fall fashion excitement building as I type, could there be a more enticing color palette?
Here’s how these gorgeous beets translate into an actual palette:
How can you use this color palette? Well, if you already have, say, a burgundy leather jacket, try adding a bright gold scarf the next time you wear it. Or maybe you can find a wrap dress with a print that incorporates this palette. How about adding an oversized wine-colored bag to an outfit of deep crimson skinny jeans worn with a persimmon-colored tweedy sweater?
Enough fashion chat. Right now, I’m just hungry. Ooh, I know: one of those multi-colored layer cakes that are so popular right now!
Don’t laugh! There just might be a fantastic new color palette lurking on your dinner table tonight…

I thought the beets were beautiful, but the palette is gorgeous.
