New Fall Colors

I always think of fall colors as being reds, orange, greens and browns, you know the color of falling leaves. But I forget that navy really should be included in the fall lineup. This dress from the new Femme Fatale Collection from Miss Candyfloss, is a perfect fall frock. I love plaid and you really don’t see this color pallet with plaids, so when it came out, I knew I had to have it, plus it’s the first dress from Miss Candyfloss that I’ve had with POCKETS!!!!

A Touch of Lilac in a Sea of Gold

We decided to take the back roads home today to once again take in the beautiful Autumn colors. I mean look at this!

However, as we rounded a corner coming down the hill, we came across a small patch of beautiful little light purple flowers. It made such a contrast against the amazing reds, oranges and yellows of the Autumn leaves, we just had to stop.

It was then that My Gentleman pointed out that I was wearing hues of purple, so we got out and took some photos.

Autumn Colors in Germany

I still can not believe that I live here! Every time we drive down the road, or visit a little village or just have a quintessential German experience, I have to pinch myself and remember that I actually live in this beautiful place. As a gal from San Diego, being able to experience the seasons on the East Coast of the U.S. was mind-blowing at times. But being here in Germany and experiencing the change from Summer to Autumn (and this is my favorite time of year) is truly magical.

This morning we visited the weekly Farmers Market in Kaiserslautern and had a wonderful time. We bought some cheese, bread, fruit, eggs, fresh flowers and had a couple tasty snacks. Then we took a drive to a neighboring village called Idar-Oberstein to photograph the Autumn colors along the way. We took our time, so everything was closed by the time we got there. But it’s so close that we’ll be able to go back and really explore the town.

I’ve been participating in OcTieBer, an annual challenge on Facebook with a bunch of friends where we wear some sort of neckwear everyday. Today I went all out in my Autumn colors and country style.
