One of the things I love to do with outfits is to mix prints. It’s something I’ve learned to do over the years being extra careful to not look like a clown in the process. When done right, mixed prints will make a great statement!It was a beautiful, sunny, crisp autumn day when we decided to take a scenic drive to Woodstock, CT and visit the lovely Roseland Cottage. We’ve visited many historic homes throughout New England and we’re always in awe with the styles of architecture and history behind these edifices. It was the perfect backdrop for our mixed print autumn outfit. Glor and I managed to take LOTS of pictures on the grounds of this gorgeous Gothic Revival home. We were the only two on our tour that day because we were early and the tour guide was gracious enough to walk us through. After our tour ended the place was lit with so many visitors waiting in line for their turn. It was nice to visit the home and wander about without interruptions from any crowds. The history behind the house was pretty awesome and one we won’t soon forget.The day was the perfect fall day! Sunny, crisp with a light chill in the air. Glor was feeling the chill much more than I did. She wore her new parka, courtesy of her brother’s friends as a bday gift, and it was the perfect coat for the season! She’ll definitely get lots of mileage from it since it’s a classic look and color.My striped dress is more like something I would wear all summer long if not for the long sleeves. I LOVE the fit and feel of this dress and it was a great look with tall boots, which was the first time I wore boots this season. I’ve had these boots for a several years now and they always restock them year after year, they’re that good! And I loved pairing the whole outfit with the tartan serape. It’s my favorite fall layering piece when I don’t feel like wearing a jacket.
