My hands-down, most anticipated day of the year is that day when you step outside and feel that first, undeniable crisp chill of fall air penetrating the last warmth of summer. That day has a special ability to make my heart race just a little, and I can’t wait until it arrives! For that reason, the first day of autumn feels like a little personal holiday. I celebrated by taking this very fall-feeling berry colored silk blouse (is it burgundy? plum? somewhere in between?) on her first outing, and tried my very first pumpkin spice latte. I figured it was time to finally see what all the fuss was about. It was pretty good…but I think I prefer my usual chai. ;)
Art deco is my favorite design period, and I find myself attracted to strong geometric shapes, especially in metal work, reminiscent of the style. Chevrons fit that mold, so it comes as no surprise I was instantly attracted to this mixed-metal statement necklace. It was on backorder for what seemed like forever, so I was happy to see it finally back in stock and at my local store. Funnily enough, my other recent accessory purchase, the perfect width black belt, also has a chevron detail. I’m on a roll, folks!
