Fall Colors

02 November 2010




















Well, I am so very lucky that where I live I am surrounded
by beauty everywhere I turn. All of these photos above were
taken literally right outside of my boyfriend's apartment,
and the photo below is the view from my bedroom window.
Crazy, isn't it? Inspiration floating everywhere! Anyways,
a cold front has blown in, making this blanked coat extremely
useful to me. It is a birthday gift from my parents that had been
back-ordered for an entire month! Came in the mail yesterday,
what perfect timing. I love the beautiful southwestern
print and just cannot get enough of it.Plus ,the giant fur collar
is so warm and cozy making me neverwant to take it off. I
paired it with this crochet tank because I really enjoy
mixing elements common to S/S into my A/W wardrobe.
Hooray for fall!

Speaking of fall, I create a playlist for every single change of
the seasons. Currently on my ipod, I am listening to:

1.) Wayside/Back in Time- Gillian Welch
2.) Thieves- She & Him
3.) Here Comes The Sun- The Beatles
4.) White Winter Hymnal- The Fleet Foxes
5.)The Engine Driver- The Decemberists
6.) Heart Of Chambers- Beach House
7.)Northern Lights- Bowerbirds
8.)Mx Missles- Andrew Bird
9.)Young Bride- Midlake
10.)Where Ever You Go- David Dondero

All perfect songs for winter walks with a warm drink. What
are you currently listening to?

First of all, yes, you do live in a wonderful place. Then, the over-the-knee sockss: you do know how to pull them off. I think it is way to easy to just wear them 'sluttily' or way too Lolita-like; but you do wear them with style. It's all about proportions. Bravissima :D

I think we may have the exact same music tastes. I especially love Fleet Foxes, Beach House, and Midlake, and Engine Driver is one of my top 5 Decemberists songs. I've never listened to David Dondero but he will be going on my list of artists to look up. So thank you!
Oh and btw cute photos :)

So funny story- I saw your coat in an Urban Outfitter's catalog and I immediately recognized it from this post! I love it! Also- You have a really good taste in music- "White Winter Hymnal" was stuck in my head yesterday and I saw Beach House in concert not to long ago! :).
