Outfit: Buffalo and Leopard

dress // blouse // neck tie // coat // shoes

I live by the motto that leopard is a neutral. It absolutely goes with everything, which makes it the easiest pattern to mix with other prints. I am loving all of the buffalo check pattern this year and it only seemed natural to mix the two. And you won't believe that this coat, which looks and fits great, is from Target and is only $39.99 (it also comes in other patterns)!

Since it has been unseasonably chilly this fall (it was 40 degrees this morning... in Florida... in November!) I layered my favorite piped blouse underneath and topped it with my go-to neck bow (last seen here). Never underestimate the versatility of dresses! With some strategic layering, they too can be as versatile as separates.

I love that the weather has been so fall-like, but here is the thing that drives me nuts about Florida -- in the summer, when it's 95 degrees outside with 100% humidity, you freeze because the air conditioning is blasting. But when it gets chilly out, everyone cranks up the heat and you swelter in your winter clothes. I always feel like I am dressing for the wrong season! Ok, rant over.

What are your favorite patterns and prints for fall?
