Minor Obsession

 I have had a small obsession with retro woodland inspired things for sometime now.  I guess it started a couple of years ago when my daughter and I were lucky enough to be shopping in Ireland and I picked up a cool little owl necklace made out of vintage coins.  (The coins are fakes; the necklace is from the popular store Accessorize, which now has an American website that doesn't do the actual stores justice.  It's great for grabbing inexspensive, on trend jewelry.)  Anyway, on the same trip we also went to Topshop in London and saw a lot of cutesy little woodland animal accessories for the home and office.  I know this trend has been around for a while now, but I just think they are so cute, and I think some of the woodland inspired pieces are perfect for fall.  The dress that I wore for our header picture fits this trend perfectly: it has a goregous mustard yellow skirt and the neckline of the cream top looks like a collection of fluttering leaves.  I do not have the coloring to wear mustard, which is a big color this season, so this dress really works for me; I get to wear the color, but since it is only on the skirt it doesn't wash me out.
Some woodland inspired pieces perfect for fall:
