Ode to Autumn



























Harper's Bazaar Executive Editor Laura Brown tweeted yesterday, "Summer, I moved on emotionally weeks ago." I couldn't agree more.  I'm ready for crisp, cool weather, cashmere sweaters, and changing leaves. Let's be clear, I am not ready for winter.  Even though my grey mink coat makes it slightly more bearable, it is not fun.  But I digress. I know many of you feel the same way so here's a little inspiration to get us all in the mood. 


By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

- Helen Hunt Jackson, September

There is nothing that compares to the feeling of autumn weather. This morning after labour day there is a change in the air which brings with it the promise of something special. I always greet this new season with heightened anticipation.

As it has been hitting at least 95* for the past 10 days an counting, I needed this post to give me hope that autumn is on the way.
Beautiful photos.

Although I feel totally the opposite-appropriately enough, here on the opposite coast, each and every one of the images you've chosen are just beautiful.

My quest this Fall: to find The PERFECT creamy cable knit sweater that isn't a nightmare of heavy itchiness.

Just putting it out there...

I don't know which is more beautiful, the pumps or the rug! I have a thing for antique rugs. Alas, but one's home can only hold so many...

"Better things are coming!"

It is for this reason that I give much value to everything I see.

Beautiful photographs!
