The Autumn I Wanted

Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler temperatures, the ability to wear jackets and sweaters and scarves. I love how the natural world bursts into color for one last hurrah before the killing temperatures of winter send it into hibernation. This year it sort of passed us by. We have had unseasonably warm temperatures. Hurricane Irene layered all our trees with salt so they just turned brown instead of changing color. And then it got cold and rainy. Where is my autumn!?

Since I couldn’t find it in real life, I found it at the magnificent Aquitaine sims, that have been decked out for fall. I am snug and warm in my tights, scarf and handwarmers, and can still enjoy the sunshine. And my gorgeous boots from Opium are just made for leaf-crunching! Today my skin is a relatively new one from Mallory Cowen that is very flattering with my tousled hairstyle from Kik.

May your autumn be just what you wanted—I will keep my fingers crossed for mine!

Allie

One of my AP Spanish students inspired me for today’s ensemble. Allie is petite, casual, and is one of those girls who just looks stunning in whatever she puts on. (It is startling and sometimes depressing how many of these students I have!) She also happens to be someone who struggles mightily in my class but who works her heart out and has gained an incredible amount of skill. An extremely smart and hardworking girl. Add kind and responsible to the mix and what you have is someone pretty special. It’s kids like her that make me love what I do.
