Butterfly Alley

Spread your wings and fly to Mariposa Alley in the city of Riverside where this beautiful butterfly mural is located! While the city of Riverside is mostly known for the historic Mission Inn, Riverside also has a vibrant art scene including this installation by the artist Martin Sanchez. I visited the city of Riverside last weekend, not only to check out "butterfly alley" as it's called but also to take in all of the gorgeous architecture and culture that Riverside has to offer! Because the city gets very busy during the holidays due to the Christmas light display at the Mission Inn,  the week before Thanksgiving seemed like the perfect time for a visit. In order to match the vibrant monarch butterflies on the mural, I wore this new pleated skirt and a matching purple sweater for the occasion!

Due to the autumnal color scheme of oranges, yellows and purples, I think this outfit would be perfect for Thanksgiving! I know some people like to stay casual and comfy for the big (or maybe this year small) Thanksgiving meal but, no matter the size of the meal or the crowd, I like to get a little dressed up! I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to wear this year to our very intimate family gathering but one thing is for certain: whatever I end up choosing as an outfit it will have a lot of autumnal colors, just like the outfit I am featuring today. Who knows, I just might end up wearing some variation of this same outfit for Thanksgiving! No matter what you end up doing or wearing this year, I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I love the colors in this skirt! The variation in oranges is so striking!

  2. What a zingy and refreshing hit of color against those fabulous butterflies. Great to see you in the #WowOnWednesday link up.

  3. I hope you got to wear this pretty outfit for Thanksgiving. That multi colored skirt in Fall colors is perfect for all FALL & WINTER and matches the stunning butterfly mural!
