Late Bloomers

One of the most lovely things about early autumn are the late blooming flowers. I've been watching the last cluster of roses in my garden and it's as if they are putting every possible ounce of effort into being at their most beautiful for their final show. Perhaps that's why I'm so taken with all the fall florals hitting the streets of late, like a garden full of farewell blooms, a flash of color before we fade into winter, with a promise, just a hint, of spring to come.

What do you think? Would you wear florals for fall? If head to toe blooms aren't quite your thing, what about accessorizing with just a few blossoms? These flowering necklaces could do the trick.

This last bit of lovely is from JCrew. Prada, Tom Binns, Marni, Lanvin and Kate Spade also have you covered if you want to pick yourself a bouquet.

How about it? Will you be bringing yourself any flowers this fall?
