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,
