With falll just round the corner, I can hardly wait for the leaves to start turning gorgeous sunset shades and for the air to become brisk. Sitting in a very hot apartment this summer will do that to do, inducing dreams of the fabled New England fall, that I know to be more real and amazing than the fables. 🙂
I shopped online on Modcloth (gorgeous stuff) for a couple staple items in anticipation for the cooler weather and these are a couple things I picked up:
I love dressing up in the fall! You don’t need to worry too much about the intense bundling up that Vermont’s winter requires, or the muggy heat that makes you want to escape your skin and soak in the water. Think… the dress with a warm cardigan and the above the knee boots. I love the coats and scarves and flannel and boots… there is just so much you can do with layering and different textures. Yes, it is a wee bit more work than throwing on t-shirt and shorts for summer, but it is so much more fun! 🙂
And frankly, receiving brown parcels in the mail is like Christmas morning. There is magic in it.
