so i know it’s technically still fall for a few more weeks, but with -20 temperatures and snow on the ground, i’m missing real fall.
you know, the scarves and boots for fashion not function style, and leaves crunching under your feet kinda fall?
that was one of the greatest things about our thanksgiving BC road trip. we got to experience full-out fall in all of its glory.
oh, the larches! (okay, as much as i joke, the larches – the bright yellow trees – are rather beautiful).
sister and i explored beacon hill park in victoria on a crisp and beautiful october morning. between checking out the numerous fountains and chasing all the peacocks (seriously, there are peacocks wandering all over the place. tons of them!) i crunched and tossed as many leaves as i possibly could.
when was the last time you had a childlike joyful moment? you should have more…like all the time. go throw some snow, or if you’re lucky enough to still have leaves on the ground, jump into a pile of them.
the day was also perfect for one of those cute fall outfits, complete with muted neutrals to match the sky.
i love vintage, and discovered this cute little shop tucked away on 17th ave between a coffee shop and a poutine restaurant – it’s an indulgent little block.
used house of vintage has everything you’d think of when it comes to old threads, but they also specialize in vintage remakes. this polka dot number is a replica pattern not worn by the people of the past.
can we go back to real fall now? please?
what do you love most about fall?
