I discovered fashion blogs a while ago and what fun I've had. These gals are very clever and oh so inspirational, putting together combinations of color and pattern that I've never dreamed of. They have encouraged me to put a bit more thought behind what I wear on a daily basis.

A friend made this necklace for me using hand crafted beads she bought while on vacation in the Caribbean and some interesting seed pods. I hadn't worn it because I didn't think I could do her handiwork justice. Armed with my newly budded fashion sense, I put together this outfit. Nothing worthy of the fashion section, but I'm pretty proud of my effort.
Olive green shorts (in need of ironing) from JCrew a few years back.

Marine blue tank from JCrew also a few years back. This is their favorite tee and it's one of my favorites. I own quite a few.

Faded black cardi from Liz Claiborn many, many years back.

Not shown is the pair of matte gold ballet flats that I bought on sale from Garnet Hill last year.

Fall Dressing

Halloween is fun. Dressing up as an alter ego or wanna-be dream can be quite a blast. But it is only one day so when I decorate my home I dress it for Fall. I love Fall and adding a bit of Fall inspired decor carries me from October through Thanksgiving.

OK, the jack-o-lantern is a bit of a stretch but it is surrounded by lots of Fall leaves :)
