To signal a change from the warmer months to a time of quiet and hibernation, we recently celebrated the Autumnal Equinox. Last Saturday evening consisted of a Fall feast featuring butternut squash, roasted salmon, apple tarts, and red wine. The night ended with a campfire to mark the beginning of the season as well as a time of change.
With the colder weather, warmer clothes are slowly making their way into my everyday dressing. To me, San Francisco Fall means black dresses, wool capes, hats, and umbrellas. I found this cape (for only $4.00) in a tiny town in Northern Michigan during a summer weekend trip. Its heavy wool fabric and hood make it an Autumn staple. My mind wanders to forest jaunts and apple picking whenever I wear it.
