AUTUMN AWAKENING


For the entire month of September, even after the official first day of fall, I'm unwilling to give up summer. It may be that I'm in denial about the coming winter, or just that I'm not ready to put away my maillots or jeweled sandals. But by the beginning of October, I acknowledge that it's time to embrace autumn. In honor of the first day of this month, I decided to wear one of the most fall-like pieces in my wardrobe. This vintage skirt always makes me think of Van Gogh's Cornfield and Monet's Haystacks, two paintings that undoubtedly evoke the autumn aesthetic.


Luckily for me, my Aunt's decor is decidedly fallish as well, and proved to be a perfect backdrop for my ode to the season.

I'm so happy to wear these pumpkin-colored boots again!


I'm wearing a vintage skirt with a vintage crinoline, a Liz Claiborne blouse, belt from Urban Outfitters, Rodarte for Target stockings, and burnt orange suede Lovely People shoes.

Happy Autumn!
