Take it Outside
About 2:15 on a Thursday afternoon. Clouds silently racing one another across a faraway autumn sky on the other side of an office window that doesn’t open. An irresistible compulsion to bust loose, to tell the boss we’re running out to have a prescription filled to throw on something woven in a mill in Scotland and catch the next train to… to anywhere there are leaves falling from chestnut trees, and excuses to wear tartans and high leather boots, and a wry fellow against whom we can lean when the chilly air pushes in through the canvas roof of his old convertible.
Fashion this season is a breath of fresh air. Buckets of garden roses or pansies scattered blithely on skirts. Enthusiastically oversize plaids on schoolgirl woolens. Earthy tribal prints for stalking Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. Green-hued garments for eco-minded green thumbs (visual pun intended). Everything you could want for a perfect weekend of freedom.
Today I’m embracing fall with a cozy cashmere scarf, steaming cup of tea, and a cider-scented candle… Happy November everyone!!!
