vintage-inspired autumn outfit

Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness. And boots.

I had originally written a huge whine-fest about how much I hate the cold and the dark, yada yada, but I decided to take it down, because let’s face it, it’s not exactly breaking news, is it?

Instead, I will simply note that the leaves are pretty at this time of year. Aren’t leaves pretty?

vintage-inspired autumn outfitWhile we were taking these photos (at this place again), the security guard stopped for a friendly word with us. “Don’t go near the old chimney,” he warned. “The old chimney be dangerous!” So, naturally, we went straight to the old chimney.

(No, I’m joking. He told us not to go near the old tumbledown shack that was right around the corner. And he wasn’t speaking like a country person from Enid Blyton, either, I just made that up for dramatic effect.)

Still can’t wait for spring, though…

  • I hope it doesn’t sound a bit internet-stalkerish to say that you are absolutely gorgeous. And you have a very talented photographer as well! x

  • Ha, I just complained in my blog about having to wear more clothes too, and it also included a “don’t get me wrong”! My post was all complaining, though, and no fabulous pictures, unfortunately. That said, just be grateful you don’t live in Finland, although that would be interesting as I’d like to see what you’d wear when it’s -30 degrees outside.

    • Thank you 🙂 And you know, the best thing is that it’s not actually a suit – I got the jacket/cardigan as a gift about three years ago, and the skirt last month: perfect colour match – I was so pleased 🙂
