Geometric designs in nature have always appealed to the pragmatist in me. The uncertain moments of rippling water as leaves fall to the surface always have me grasping to find a sense of rhythm. The cool blue autumn sky reflected in dark gray waters is mirrored here in a houndstooth-inspired pattern, creating the perfect socks to pair with your sensible penny loafers while you ponder the depths of whatever you see while strolling through the woods.
