Autumn's Here!

Autumn's Here!

Today I had the morning off. "That sounds like the perfect time to run some of those pesky errands that have been piling up", you might say. Instead, I took one look outside and brewed up a pot of coffee, lit my apple scented candle and dreamed up the only outfit that might tempt me to go outside on a perfectly chilly morning. The only thing missing is a hot cup of spiced cider.

The Old Standby

There's something so great about a piece of clothing that can stand the test of time. Everything in this ensemble has been mine for at least a year and a half. I picked up this twelve dollar, mustard scarf at H&M on my first trip to New York City over 6 years ago! It was like my gateway drug to all things mustard colored and I've worn it every year since.

My husband, my old standby outfit, and I woke up a little early this morning. We baked something sweet for breakfast, pounded a bit of coffee and hit the road to visit a quiet neighboring town for some fresh air. Today was a day for a quiet stroll and watching the leaves fall, a weekend activity that will always stand the test of time...unless it's summer (or winter, or spring).
