As a musician, I think of life as a series of motifs or themes. Some that recur often and some that occur once in a while.

There are beautiful and melodic motifs that I hope to encounter again and again. And there are motifs that culminate into pinnacles of milestones reached. While there are some that create so much dissonance that they bring us to low points in life.

Like in music, each note, or each moment in life is what shapes the piece, or our stories. They are what makes us who we are and makes us unique. So while some moments are better left in the past, the lessons they teach us act as the exposition, guiding us into the development and then the recapitulation to remind us of those life lessons.

Speaking of motifs, I love Fall motifs and patterns. While everyone loves their Fall plaid, as do I, I'm also a fan of paisley. It sometimes reminds me of a home decorated in the 70s, but when mixed with simple stripes, it's actually refreshing! What are your favorite Fall patterns?

  4. What beautiful Fall Motifs. Your skirt, top and clutch are all incredible and I need a lucite open umbrella like that. The photo of you by the sculpture with the umbrellas is amazing, Graze.

    Come share your awesome style with me on my Thursday Linkup. A brand-new one is live this week, pretty lady. I'd love for you to join it. Thank you and have a great weekend!
