The White Fence

There's just something about white fences, whether it be a picket fence
or a horse fence, that causes you to experience an overwhelming sense
of nostalgia. They symbolize comfort and simplicity. They conjure up
images of a manicured suburban home or a quaint pastoral setting. They
turn our minds to ideas of tranquility, calm, and the American dream.
If there's anytime of year that we sentimentally yearn for days of past,
it has to be autumn. With all the delicious baked goods we're brought
back to the kitchens of  mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
With nature being the center of attention during its time of change
we're brought back to a period in human history when nature was our
master. When the mornings and nights are brisk and each day we have
less sun, we're brought back to our childhoods and the first days of school
where we donned our blindingly white new shoes. Isn't it remarkable how
each season connotes varying and specific meanings and sentiments?

  1. I love this whole outfit. So perfect for the changing of the seasons! I'm very much looking forward to chilly mornings and evenings and everything autumnal, but I'm dreading that winter is waiting so close behind.
