For the first time in many years, I’m attempting to introduce a vaguely autumnal color palette to my wardrobe! Crimsons, browns, creams, and olives – sure, you might surmise that  this reflects my growing desire to blend into the natural landscape like a quietly rooted tree, but let’s not be too hasty. I could not, of course, pass up the opportunity to match my favorite antique book!

I might have adjusted my penchant for pastel hues to fit the seasons, but I remain committed, it seems, to denying how cold New England grows every evening – consider this velvet corduroy/airy lace combination a compromise!

Jumper-style dresses create the illusion, I hope, that I am the inquisitive twenty-something heroine of a historical fantasy novel – just slightly anachronistic enough to suggest another time or place!

    I love that color! And the lace blouse and the pearls make the outfit so old fashioned! 🙂
