Fall Into Place

Lace and chiffon dress (gift) - American Apparel; sandals $7 - Payless; vintage Liz Claiborne belt - mom; green satchel - Urban Outfitters
Can you even believe that about one month ago it was warm enough to wear sandals? I can't, not one bit. I remember walking over to the Penn museum with my friend Shannon and having to take off my scarf because we were so warm in the sun. Where did fall go? What happened to that lovely intermediate period where the sun sets at a reasonable 6 o'clock, where the leaves are a bit golden, and where a leather jacket is just right?

I made the mistake this morning of leaving my dorm wearing just a motorcycle jacket over a sleeveless dress and I was chilled to the bone. I'm currently recuperating, scolding myself on my lack of better judgement and sipping on a hot mug of coffee (with whipped cream!). I'm also working up the nerve to actually show up at my hair appointment tomorrow. I've been trying to grow out my hair for years, but it's clearly not making any progress, and at this point it just doesn't do what I want it to. I'm thinking of completely reshaping it, which admittedly is something I haven't done for years, and I'm bringing with me this photo as a reference. I just have to keep reminding myself that a bad haircut isn't the end of the world, and that there are more pressing matters that deserve my attention, like my Art History paper revisions that are due tomorrow. Speaking of...
