In Vino Veritas

Why, hello hello. I give my apologies for my mini
absence - I've been one busy bee over here! On
Friday, Paul and I went to a Halloween party and
on Saturday, I went to one with some friends. I
was lacking in creativity this year, so I just
went with what my closet offered. Thankfully, my
time out west has left me with enough cowboy things
that I could create multiple costumes. And my mom
had made me a red cape years ago, so I just went
as Little Red Riding Hood again. I know, not very
clever or imaginative. Well, I have 12 months to
figure out what to wear next Halloween! 
Paul and I got lucky with there being an apple
orchard in the city, accessible by bus. There's no
pumpkin patch though, so instead we had to make
due with a local farmer's market (the next best
thing). And while we walked leisurely through
the rows of apple trees enjoying the sun and the
scenery, we chose pumpkins with the wind fiercely
blowing and the cold nipping at our fingers. So
bring on the boots and the over-sized sweaters! And
what says fall better than orange, black, and
brown?! Colours I could surely live in. I'm excited
to draw faces on the smaller pumpkins we bought and
carve the bigger one. I'm more for the silly, goofy 
faces as opposed to the scarier themed ones.

I'm not sure if I mentioned, but my little sister
came over we had a bit of a clothes swap. This
sweater is hers. And to think that once upon a
time we were constantly bickering, clothes often
being the reason. Just another gem of growing up!

  4. i forgot to ask...would you mind if we featured this look on our blog tomorrow?

  5. Haha- I love that observation about sisters and growing up. Very true. My sister was always very touchy about clothes being borrowed (though she contanstly borrowed mine, lol. I never minded but thought that was a bit weird).

    You look darling in this. Very fall.

  6. I like those boots! I just went to an orchard that sold pumpkins yesterday. I blogged about it on my other blog, leahwise.com.
