Longing for fall
Like some other bloggers I see, I'm getting that itch for fall. Who can blame me with endless months of 100+ degree weather? The thought of cool breezes and hot chocolate is so wonderful.
So I made my favorite pumpkin muffins this week - Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins from Country Living. A bit indulgent? Yes. But oh so good.
I've been perusing the fall issue of Lucky magazine. Some years this has me delighted in the latest trends. And other years I feel a bit "meh". And this would be a "meh" year. What is the signature style for the fall? It's not jumping out at me.
But I'm craving some new boots. Already. What good will new boots do me? I won't be able to wear them until likely November. I'd like some quintessential classic Frye boots. The sort of comfy classics I can sink my feet into and wear with almost anything. Why don't quintessential classics go on sale?
So I went the low-cost way and switched out some of the clothes in my wardrobe, packing away the popsicle shades of spring and pulling out those late summer early fall colors I had packed away - chocolate brown tank tops, light cotton shirts in shades of dark forest green, dark grey boho tops - earthy natural shades.
I have this thing for color (er, I might have mentioned) and I think the seasons have colors. Not just the seasons, but the seasons between seasons. At the end of spring and beginning of summer, I love hot tropical colors, things that look like sno cones and Mexico. But at the end of summer, I like those dark husky colors, that say change is coming.
