Polka Dots and Leopard


My photos from yesterday really gave me a hankering for more fall in my life! It's so sad that there is never really a true fall in southern Virginia. Usually we don't even see the leaves turn colors. Instead they become brown and fall on the ground all in the same week and usually around mid-November when we are still experiencing above normal temperatures. But I think I've discovered a way to remedy this! Mums!!! Lots and lots of mums. They will add a nice fall touch to my bare ugly patio. And if I wanted to get real festive, I could always add a hay bale too:) But I'll try not to get too carried away.




And if you can't tell, I have been bitten by the pattern bug. I love leopard and I love polka dots and never would've put them together until I discovered a similar look in a magazine. I am always amused with myself when I can take a pictorial from a magazine that cost $1000 and translate the same aesthetic for a mere $30. And I'll be honest. I don't love the entire look. After I saw the pictures on the computer I decided that the green glasses seemed out of place. The bright green just competed too much with the overall look. But hey! We all have our moments. Even Heidi Klum, producer of Project Runway misses the mark on the red carpet. Ok...I feel justified now;) haha!!
