Essence of Autumn

My first outfit post is part of Kristy of Vogue Gone Rogue's The Essence of Autumn contest.  I was planning on being all well-prepared and what not and do this weeks ahead of time, but of course the delinquent in me twisted this and finagled that (I am actually just crap at planning) so that naturally I just met the deadline much like the term papers I squeezed under college profs doors back in the day.  Autumn brings out the academic in me naturally so let's just say it was a piece of performance art.  Aren't you impressed?

Autumn is a bewitching season, and stands apart from the others.  In spring, summer and winter you can find the broad analogies of the three ages of men: the innocence and struggles of childhood, the intoxicating freedom of youth, and the slowing maturity of experience.  Autumn stands apart because she shakes us loose with hauntings of memory.  It is feverish with dreams.  Even here in a region without seasons, Autumn is still here; the ghosts are in the scents.

Ha! I totally did the same thing. I was hoping to plan something cool, but life got in the way so I was only able to snap a few quick shots. I almost dropped out, but luckily Kristy talked me out of it and I am so glad she did! Love meeting me bloggy friends because of it!

honey.... i love your style! and i think it's awesome that you WEREN'T well planned for this. i think some of the most inspired fashion comes out of when we're scrambling for what the hell to wear. at least, that's how i feel. but i am at heart a procrastinator. =P

anyway, back to you. you are GORGEOUS! your eyes are like pools of blue. i love them. especially contrasting against your gorgeous dark hair. that vest is adorable, the bag is perfect and i love the pants. i used to have a pair of pants similar to these, but i wore them too much and they got hole-y in a not cute way. i also love that you've paired all these brownish hues with a rich blue sweater. i think blue and brown look fantastic together. =)

great job and goodluck darling!!!!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog - good luck to you as well! I don't know how to reply to comments on my own blog so I always have to write back on the other person's blog and hope they see it! To answer your question - I'm living in Minnesota, so yep, the fall colors are very vibrant but they end so quickly :(
