The one thing I think about on crisp October mornings is how much I can get away with looking like the trees with their brightly colored leaves. Is there such a thing as too much with these colors? I LOVE wearing mustard, burgundy, rust, teal, and cognac, and this time of year I can get away with wearing some combination of those colors all at once...while eating things made with pumpkin and apple.
Growing up in West Texas didn't afford me a real fall season. It is usually warm until the beginning of November, and at that point the leaves just shrivel up and fall off the trees. I will never forget my first fall in Maryland and the feeling of being overcome by color. I was stunned by the shocking yellow of the Ginkgo trees, the electric orange of Maple leaves, and the wine colored red leaves found on countless other trees in this area. I love that I don't have to look very far to find outfit inspiration here. It's right outside my window.
