I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
Okay, okay, I’ll admit it, Fall is pretty. The colors and the textures are wonderful. But you’re still not gonna get me to like it. I don’t like the dropping temperatures, or the fact that I know Winter is a blink away.
You can tie me down, and force feed me all the pumpkin chai teas, pumpkin pies, muffins, and ciders you can manage *and seriously I encourage you to do so* but that’s still not gonna change my mind. I’m a summer girl. Give me hot winds, blazing suns, and fluttering kimonos any time.
But I’m trying to find the positive in things these days, so….hand over that pumpkin chai already.
I don’t match things. I don’t think about does this match per se. I think does this ‘go.’ There’s a difference I think. Matching means the same – it means they are the same. When I put clothes on I don’t think about whether they are the same and therefore matching, I think about do they go together.
Do they bring something out in the other? Do they create a contrast, a balance, or even spark your interest in the way the patterns, textures, or colors play off of each other? Mostly, I ask myself do they feel right together?
This is all subconscious – mostly. For instance, I didn’t realize these two pieces even had differing patterns. They just felt right together.
