What's a girl to do when she has fall in her heart but not enough in her weather forecast? She wears open toed shoes, a leaf corsage, and as much of an autumn palette as she can muster. Thank goodness that Target had this fall floral frock ready for me on my last shopping trip. I bought groceries, diapers, and a dress. You know, the average shopping trip for our family.  To celebrate my dress find I decide to wear some fall color in a corsage. I don't have as many beautiful leaf specimens as I would like, but give me some time and I'll be leaf picking' to cover my autumn corsage plans. What are you wearing to celebrate fall? targetdress target_dress

natural ornaments, a leaf corsage or two

We don't have as many changing leaves as I would like here in Texas, but I can find some autumntastic examples if I trespass a bit. I decided that they were perfectly nice accessories with a little effort, and so I made a few leaf corsages with nothing more than leaves, acorns, hot glue and a pin. These are not long term investment jewelry pieces, but they are a nice pop of fall color and give me another reason for relaxing fall walks and leaf gathering. I've always collected acorns and leaves, now I have one more reason to raid the neighbors' yards. What are you doing with your leaves this fall?


 I added a bit of felt on the back to attach the leaves and the pin

wearing fall plaid with street cred

We have had just a hint of fall weather lately, so I finally feel able to wear plaid with some authority of the season. Since we are just degrees away from summer weather most afternoons I threw in a summer skirt in the mix.  It feels strange to wear certain plaids before the weather is consistently cold, doesn't it? Mind you, I'll do it anyway because plaid is my favorite color, but it's refreshing to see other people embracing the best ever pattern too. Did you know it's just days from the official plaid lover's holiday, Plaidurday? Hope you'll join in. The more the merrier and plaider. plaid5   plaid2   plaid   plaid4
