It is a beautiful evening…I am loving the color. This time next week it will be dark and I can light candles at my desk!
This year’s Project Runway got me thinking about mixed patterns because I loved Mondo’s designs. He was brilliant with his ability to mix patterns beautifully, but it is the kind of design aesthetic that can easily go horribly wrong.
Today, in my very small way, I attempted to mix it up a little. I put this silk boyfriend pinstrip (Marshall’s) with a Dana Buchman leopard top (Kohl’s). It seemed to work. This is a very conservative color scheme, but maybe I will get a little braver next time and try a bolder move. I don’t believe Mondo needs to feel threatened!!
If you are in the mood for fall and to mix it up, try my favorite Pumpkin Bread Recipe!
