Christy: The colours of fall

Outside it is raining like crazy and the wind is lashing poor beautiful leaves down from the trees. Happily, I don't have to go anywhere tonight so I'm baking pumpkin spice muffins and trying to get homework done (trying being the operative word)
I had to run to the store to get something for my muffins and since it was just around the corner I ran out into the rain in sweat pants and two baggy sweaters and flip flops (to avoid the horrible fate of wet socks)
I felt like a huge weirdo once I arrived at IGA and was confronted with lots of normal looking, well dressed people doing their groceries. I got out of there as soon as I could.

Last weekend the weather was deliriously beautiful in contrast to today. I wore one of my favorite bright dresses under a sweater and felt very dressed for fall.

Claire took these pictures for me on our curvy stair case

Of course I'm wearing my old keds. Who cares if they sort of clash with my skirt :)

I bought this black jacket in france when I was thirteen and I still fit/wear it. It's probably one of the better purchases I've made in my life.


I found the combination of patterns very visually interesting.

My my last muffins just came out of the oven. I limited myself to only eating two (with some left over cool whip dolloped on top) The rest are put away in the fridge for brunch tomorrow.
There's something especially lovely about hot comfort food when it's the weather is so disastrous outside.

I love it when you make a big purchase and then realize years later that you're still using it. It really makes you feel like you spent your money wisely-and sort of makes up for the times that you didn't. Haha or maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better.

The dress is so fun as a skirt. I ought to try that one time :)
