inspiration: zigzag

i don't know about you guys, and i might actually punch myself later for saying this, but...i'm kind of over ikat. well, maybe not over it, but just a little tired of seeing it absolutely everywhere. i mean, don't get me wrong, there are some really great patterns and excellent color combinations, but maybe i've just seen tooooo much of it lately... 

right now, i much prefer zigzags...clean lines, a nice pop of pattern and color yet not overwhelming, and totally timeless...how about you? 

...i might already be eating my words...kinda loving this combination of zigzag AND ikat...sheesh!

in just the past few days the weather has completely changed and it is officially fall!

tosh and i are taking a little roadtrip down to southern california tomorrow and we're looking forward to a gorgeous sunrise drive, good music, my very first in n out burger, and some good laughs!

fall happens to be my favorite season...the changing of the leaves, the falling of the leaves, the stomping on the leaves...the vibrant colors of the sunrise and sunsets, cool crisp air, the smell of a fire going, cozying up with a warm blanket and a movie...boots, beanies, down jackets, excitement for winter snow trips...i love it all!
