Embracing the Fall

I much prefer fall and winter clothes over summer.

I don't know... there's something about the options of layering, scarves, denim, boots and bundling up that I gravitate toward. Sundresses and shorts just aren't my thing.

  • Black tee from Old Navy ($10)
  • Polyester (?) bandana-style scarf from Kohl's (gift from my mom last Christmas)
  • Bright blue, lightweight scarf (gifted by my good friend Lauren)
  • Banana Republic cropped jeans I found at Last Chance (Decatur, Ga.)... love these jeans and wish I could find them in size long at a Banana Store. They're great jeans.
  • Arturo Chiang boots gifted by my in-laws last Christmas and blogged about here

Oh, and for readers in Atlanta/Decatur, here's an event next Sat you could check out between football games or before you head out for dinner:

Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool's 2010 Auction Jubilee is Saturday, November 13th from 3 to 6 p.m. at All Souls Fellowship in Decatur.
