Those trees are still adamantly green and it’s nearly October. Admittedly, this outfit is from a couple of weeks ago, but it looks more or less like this outside my window this morning. But who can complain when wearing a simple dress and ankle boots in September doesn’t make you shiver? I’ll be up to my eyeballs in snow soon enough! read more

We had gorgeous weather, but I was still glad to have gone for light layers. read more
