Purple, Tweed, and an Adieu

As much as I love the thought of late afternoon walks to the local ice-cream stand, or of not being greeted by a freezing northwester every morning as I step out for work, there is a part of me that misses cold weather, especially autumn - and colors that are quintessentially autumn. Burnt orange, burgundy, mustard, mossy green, deep purple - colors that hint at a dark sophistication and a oneness with nature. The purple dress in this post is one of my absolute favorite autumnal shades, and I wanted to take it out for one more quick spin before we said farewell to the last of the chilly days. Paired with a light tweed jacket (another autumn staple), this look is reminiscent of those deliciously crisp fall days that sing of apples, plums, and warm, cinnamon-spiced cider in one flamingly romantic ballad. 

Now if the SS13 runways are any indication, dark hues are here to stay. It'll be a summer after my own heart, after all. 

Have a great weekend, everyone. Thank you for visiting!
