born to stand out

Anyone else love the movie What A Girl Wants? You know, the one with Colin Firth and Amanda Bynes, before she went absolutely crazy. One of my favorite movies. The part I'll always remember is when she's in the canoe with the hot British guy and he asks her, "Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?" I just love that quote! I think all of us were born to stand out in our own ways, and I totally love to stand out with my fashion. Which for this post, means mixing bright colors and bold patterns. One of my favorite combos!
Also, how awesome is this pumpkin that my dad carved? I think he could have a career as a pumpkin carver! ;) (also, all photo cred goes to him, as usual when I'm home!)

sweater: Gap (similar) // pants: Old Navy (houndstooth is still available in store!) // shoes: Steve Madden // nails: Essie Merino Cool // necklace: gift (similar)
