This weekend was relatively quiet, a much needed respite from my usual days filled with work, writing, and projects. The colder weather brings with it a hibernation of sorts. I am much happier staying in and cooking with Matthew than late evenings galavanting around San Francisco. A good book and a cup of tea are much more desirable than 2 AM adventures. 

Black and autumnal florals have been a staple in my wardrobe this season. The vibrant colors of this reconstructed skirt is quite fitting for this transitional period, especially paired with rich brown hues. I also ventured into experimentation with lipstick. I must admit I am not one for wearing too much makeup. But I do love a darker shade for the Fall.

Adorable cape, and I know how you feel. On autumns you just want to sit indoors and enjoy the little things in life. Summer is party time, not autumn.

Ninja :

pure delight! I wish that I could pull off wearing something that cute :) I absolutely love the colours.

I love everything about this. That bag is AMAZING. And I agree about the colder weather. I'd much rather stay inside with loved ones and cozy activities than run around town.

That cape is amazing! I just wore a much lighter version for the first time a few weeks ago, and I'm a little cape crazed! I think I need to keep an eye out for a heavier version.

BincCi :

That brown jacket is WONDERFUL! It looks like autumn really! :P

SoFashionistica :

Sometimes it's good to have days in which all you wanna do is grap a cup of joe and read a good book! These daars are especially good when it's cold and foggy outside.I know that you guys are in San Francisco and while I am in San Rafael,I am wishing for some cold weather so that I too can wear my Fall clothes!

Beautiful skirt, did you reconstruct it yourself? Love your belt buckle too and that cape, simply amazing! beautiful scenery too! I def agree with you about just staying in being a more ideal night, I guess I'm getting old, but more and more I just really value a good night of movie watching and cuddling hehe.
