Fall Multi stripes are bolder this year. Maybe it is a reflection of the interesting times we live in, but multi stripes in unusual colors abound. Check out your favorite stores and most revered glossy mags to verify !
Featuring Fall multi stripes today!
Warm and cool come together and mesh nicely with tweed. Denim, always a neutral, provides a visual palette cleanser. Leopard adds pattern play.
This season I am especially fond of fall multi stripes in unexpected color combinations. I am wearing a placement striped sweater in fresh colors which add some zip to this shot, which is a bit overexposed due to a photoshoot in mid-day. Normally foliage would be in the background, and would be lush with golds, rusts and greens.
This year, weather has been all over the place, with summer weather finally arriving in autumn. Two days ago, in suburban New York, where I lived with my growing family years ago, a tornado touched down and wreaked havoc. Tornados are not typical in this region. But what is typical these days? What is normal?
I segue back to the OOTD. Comfy, rubber-soled booties are soft enough to walk many blocks. Round in shape, and light weight, my leopard bag is an old treasure. A swarovski bracelet adds sparkle and a bit of an edge with the studs.
This jacket looks better with a long-sleeved sweater or blouse underneath. The extra pattern near the wrists adds zest, but it is too hot to wear a long-sleeved ANYTHING underneath today! So I added bracelets. Ah, how I default to bling!
Why do I say expect the unexpected in this title? The aforementioned weather is one reason. You are experiencing this where you are, I know. Below, however is definitely an unexpected stripe from my window.
Life in Manhattan is full of surprises!
For the last few weeks I am woken up promptly with a hammering noise.
The bricks are being re-pointed. This process is necessary so the structure maintains its integrity AND so that falling bricks don’t fall from the sky! Once to twice a day, I will see a crew of two or three men wafting down my outside window.
It is a bit unnerving.! This stripe taken from the full photo:
Fabulous stripes are for sale everywhere and really look fresh this season. I will do a shopping post featuring small boutiques and/ or resale shops that have some good ones. Please look for that.
In the meantime dear readers, let me know how you are.
What surprises have you encountered recently that you want to share?
