Let me count the ways.
There are so many things to love about autumn. Crisp air, comfy clothes, cozy fires, autumn leaves, Halloween, Thanksgiving… snuggling, I mean the list is endless. Autumn is also a time to reflect, to evaluate life and remove (much like a tree shedding leaves) those things or people that negatively impact our happiness and well being. Autumn is simply a reminder to live in the moment and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
While visiting my son we drove past the most breathtaking group of trees. The leaves had a beautiful patina with hues of orange, gold and green. We immediately pulled over to get a closer look of this picturesque view.
As we exited the car we took a deep breath. The air was so crisp, we just stood there marveling at God’s magnificence. I felt energized, refreshed…. I felt so alive.
I felt childlike as I jumped, twirled and ran through the autumn leaves. I picked up and tossed the leaves in the air like a two year old. It felt amazing…you know that feeling like all is right in the world. I had this stride, (or as one of the foxes in my circle calls it), that “walk like you own it walk.”
Autumn is also a time to update our wardrobe and incorporate those trendy new fashion must have pieces . I decided to deviate from my usual monochromatic wardrobe and shake things up a bit. I paired this bold eye catching leopard coat with this black chic swing dress.
Leopard is a timeless wardrobe staple. You may want to play it safe and pair it with a little black dress also. If you prefer a more edgy look, try leopard with a bold pencil skirt, sunnies or a haute trendy pair of over the knee boots.
Whatever look you decide on just be sure you “own it!”
As I reflect on my awesome weekend I am reminded to cherish those special moments. Can’t wait until my next visit… but until then you can find me at Barnes and Noble sipping on a cup of white chocolate mocha and browsing the latest fall fashion magazines.
