Gold Leaves and Autumn Longings

In the midst of this summer heat, I am definitely craving that fall air. Although I do love my little dresses and cutsey skirts, there is something about boots and scarves I can't get enough of. The trick is finding something you can layer over enough and still be warm, while not being cooked in a heated room. These photos are obviously pulled from a colder month, when summer was just a word in the chilly air.. For now, I'll just stick to my fall day dreams and ice cream cones, while sweating through the rest of these blazing days.

This skirt I'm wearing is one of my favorites; I love its painterly effect. It remind me of watercolor scribbles on the side of your page where you dip your brush to create the correct color. It's those imperfect streaks and dabs when tumbled together in a harmonious spectrum that create such a joyful flow. The tawny golds and multiple blues never fail to bring a smile to my face, or at least, inside my mind.

  1. Funnily enough, I've just written about the tension between seasons and about that feeling of lamenting the ending of summer while wanting to get on and embrace autumn/fall. Lovely pattern to that skirt.

  2. Seasons sure bring on bouts of such strange nostalgia. Thank you Rosalind!
