Mode

Fun fact: "Mode" is light brown. I never knew that until I learned about the original colors of my sorority. A name for light brown that has obviously fallen out of fashion, but I'd like to bring it back since "en mode" implies fashionable. Simple colors have been my go to this summer, particularly shades of brown and this seersucker beauty from American Apparel has gotten quite a bit of wear. In the spirit of nature in late summer I'm gravitating towards mode as it blends in with slightly tanned skin and goes so well with my sensible Longchamp work bag.
