When The Leaves Come Falling Down

Happy Monday to everyone!
I went to the mountains this weekend and the leaves were just gorgeous. Many trees were already starting to look bare, but the colors of the leaves still on the trees were fabulous!    Fall really is here and sticking around. 
          Daylight Savings was also this weekend, another sign of fall.
  I do like the fact that son2 goes to school when it is light out,
 but hate the fact that it gets dark so early now!
Wearing the brown cords again and adding some pops of color.
I love the idea of putting two bold colors together.
The turquoise and purple play very nicely off of each other and the brown just grounds the bold colors.
I mimicked the blue in the scarf with my large earrings and of course
boots are part of the ensemble!
What colors do you like to mix with purple?
Are the leaves changing where you live?

sweater-BCBG
scarf/cords-Old Navy
boots-Nine West
earrings-Target

Leaf peeping is so much fun! Unfortunately our leaves are almost gone. We raked for 3 hours on Sunday!

My favorite colors to mix with purple are green and pink. You look great! Love your boots. Heather

I love your purple top and your nails look great! The leaves are also beautiful here but I am not a fan of the shorter days and darker nights!

Ahhh the leaves are so pretty! I imagine they're so wonderful in the mountains. I wanted to go to Central Park for the leaves, but unfortunately near 59th it's practically destroyed from the snow storm.

I love the purple and blues together. The way you tied your scarf with the lighter blue around your neck and dark blue hanging down looks really nice.

I'm still in denial about fall and refuse to look at leaves!

This is so pretty and purple is one of my favorite colors!

Leaves don't change much in AZ. In fact, we just noticed that a lot of the trees and flowers are coming back to life now after the oppressive heat all summer!
