When I think of fall, I think of... a crisp breeze, leaves in beautiful colors crunching under my feet, boots, sweaters, scarves, my BIRTHDAY (!)... all the very best things! I've been so busy over the past few months, I feel like summer never happened, and all of a sudden, my friend autumn has sneaked up on me! And I'm perfectly OK with that. (Of note: Did you know that snuck isn't the right thing to say? I didn't until today.)
You know it's fall when....
- The pink suede moccasin boots come out! True story: My mom bought these lil' Steve Madden boots for me eight years ago when I was managing a student government campaign and our color was... pink! It went with the name of our party: PINC. As in, P.Inc., as in People Incorporated. Also, when I left on my mission, I left these in the basement at the top of my shoe rack... in front of a sunny window, and they remained perched atop their wooden perch for a year and a half, faithfully awaiting my arrival. (Unfortunately, sitting in the sun, fully exposed, for 17 months and 2 weeks took its toll, and one side of each boot is lighter than the other. Ooops. I love them anyway!) Also, apparently someone sold these on eBay recently for $36.06?
|I really need to do something about that stain... Anyone have good suede cleaning tips?|
- Socks come back into your life! (Though honestly, they never leave mine. Obviously, I run with socks on. And I wear socks to sleep, even in the summer. I get cold, OK?)
|Are you sensing a pattern here? I like pink!|
|This bike has nothing to do with fall, but I saw it today, and it's pink!|
- Your post-class evening walk to the metro necessitates the wearing of your gray leopard-print cardigan over your $3 Miley Cyrus t-shirt. Baby, it's gettin' chilly outside!
- THERE IS ALMOST ZERO HUMIDITY IN WASHINGTON, DC!! People, this is a BIG DEAL!! (And it only happens in the fall.)
- You finally finish the Gryffindor scarf! OK, that one had nothing to do with fall, but you guys, YAY!!! I've never crocheted anything into fruition before!! This is ALSO a BIG. DEAL!!!
|Almost done! (Circa 4am last night...)|
Welcome back, friend Fall! :)
