Hey guys, I'm going to be away for a while, hopefully just a week or two.  I'm going through some medical issues right now, and just want to step away from everything I possibly can.  It kind of sucks right now to be homebound and feeling like crap, but I have to say the timing of this cardigan was perfect.

It got here just a couple of days before I started feeling really bad, and I got a chance to grab these shots, and since then I've been living in it and my fleece pants.  Just comforting it up as much as I can.

I really appreciate you understanding why I'm away.  See you all as soon as I can!

...put on a dress, a chunky cardigan, boots, scarf, and hat.  Done.  It's really as simple as that.  And mix and match as necessary to create 'new' outfits.

For the winter, add tights, and maybe another top layer somewhere in there.

Well, despite ranting and raving the weather has started to turn.  The leaves are redder and the sun more orange.  It's here: Fall.  It's here and that means soon it will be chilled.  Soon there will be more layers.

But while there's this tiny moment of warmth amid the red I'm going to indulge myself with kimonos in all their glory before they're hidden under layers of knit.

Day of Shooting

This past Sunday I did a special promotional shoot.  After a bit of a crisis to start the day - gear breaking, and all the stores closed, getting across town to borrow from a friend - it was a great day filled with a variety of fabulous subjects.

I had picked this lovely shift dress to wear that day for two simple reasons: comfort and style.  The style was business professional and appropriate for all the new clients I met.  And the comfort, well that speaks for itself - I spent a whole day shooting in the studio and the dress just moved with me throughout.

This is one of those pieces that looks great and just gets out of your way to let you go about your day.  That's a win in my books.

...so we're firmly into Fall.  The layering begins. I do love the golden light that drowns the richer colors.  I do love the tones that start to dominate the city.  But I deeply lament the end of the warmth.  It feels like I'm breaking up with the Sun.  It feels like we're giving each other the parting kiss goodbye.

And I don't like that.  Absence does not make the heart grow fonder.  As much as I love the rich hues of Fall, my heart will always lie with the bright and vivid hues of Summer.

Muffin Top Thigh High Socks

Thigh high socks are so cute.  I love layering them on bare legs and over tights.  But it seems that every time I do there's this tightness and almost a muffin top roll thing that my legs do.  I never see that on any of the pictures on the internet. *I know they're all photoshopped so that might be edited away too*  It's one of those little pet peeves.  Like, I know my legs aren't shaped weird so how come I get this roll?  And what is their secret?

You know, 'cause it's like high school.  Everyone else is in on the secret except me.  Spill people.  Spill.  Whats the secret to non-muffin top thigh high socks?  What am I missing here?
