I admit to an overwhelming predilection for clothing and cushions with landscape prints on them.
And while I do not have many of these things in my wardrobe or my house, I will take a nice vista where I can get it.
As with all things in life, once you cotton onto one such item you immediately see the same thing repeated again and again and again.
When I saw Anthropologie's new pommed pencil skirt this week I was besotted:
A scene and pom-poms - over the top in the best way possible...
And then over at Gigis, where she's highlighted this lovely little summer shift by Boden:
This past Spring I tried like the devil to buy these sandals by Dolce and Gabbana from Yoox
but finally chickened out because the shipping and handling to Canada was prohibitive and the customer service rep was not-so-helpful on the sizing...
Really, it's just as well...
JCrew used to love a good picture on their skirts:
As did Talbots:
It is a tricky business, this wearing of pictures. Things have to look just right, hit just right, or it can be quite disastrous.
You might end up with the Brooklyn Bridge spanning your nether regions in the most unflattering of ways..
Still, I imagine myself striding along autumn sidewalks, the aforementioned pommed skirt paired with a navy vneck, black boots, and a jean jacket, the pompoms swaying playfully as I move along.
But as with all things in my life, the Scottish side of me emerges and I imagine catching those same pompoms on some ill-placed branch and doing a face plant...
But gracefully, I would do it so gracefully....
How about you? Do you like vista on your fashion or do you leave that to your walls and windows?
Have a great day and stay safe out there!
