Autumn on My Mind



In between reality and dreams, I am consistently thinking of one season. Fall. It has been said that most magazine editors are in autumn mode during the summertime. I'm right there with them. I've been craving leaves to crunch in, gray skies, the cool wind to whip at my hair, carved pumpkins outside, and hot cups of tea.

The fashion in particular is my primary thought right now. Cardigans, scarves, coats, boots. I haven't worn boots since high school, but this year I'll invest in a pair. Along with the following musts:



Her entire outfit. Most notably the canvas satchel and thick-heeled Oxfords.



A thick cardigan, preferably in the color Heather Gray (always happy to be referred to as a color), or Oatmeal.



Patent Oxfords. I had to resist the urge to keep from screaming with glee at this photo. Is it not perfection?



Hmm, a boyfriend cardigan would do quite nicely too.



Some more opaque stockings.

Let them have the pools and dripping glasses of lemonade. I will eat my oatmeal and wistfully pine for the impending months of September/October/November.

Love to you all,
Heather

Fall is my favourite season, but these days it feels like it is already here, minus the leaves changing colour. I rained bug fat juicy raindrops all day yesterday. I just want a wee bit of summer.
BTW, did I tell you that Eva Green is on my secret Girl-Crush list? I don't know who I oggled more, her or Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. - G

I pretty much constantly yearn for fall. Out here in LA it lasts for like, two weeks. Sigh.

And I'm sorry things are a bit difficult right now. Wish I could say that I've got guarantees from the universe that people and life in general will stop sucking so hard, but alas, I've got none to give.

::hugs:: and be well.
