Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

20181006_145708This is one of my favorite times of year and invokes thoughts of apples, pumpkins, cinnamon (and nutmeg, too). Have you ever had your color analysis done? I am a cross between a warm autumn and a deep autumn. But anyone can incorporate fall colors into their wardrobe by wearing just a splash of it through accessories, statement jewelry and even makeup (okay, hair color, too). Just to mix things up a bit, I am wearing autumn colors with plaid pants. My colors are yellow gold, cinnamon and burgundy red. Which colors look best with my plaid pants? I am inclined to liking my burgundy colored leather jacket best of all. I think that jacket is quite versatile and will explore its potential later in another post. The long warm cinnamon red sweater is so cozy, comfortable and warm.20181006_134808

My husband and I were invited to spend the weekend at this beautiful house on Squam Lake by my amazing sister and brother-in-law.  It was in honor of my sister-in-law’s birthday and she finds the most incredible places to stay.
The water is so clean, clear and refreshing, and the loons have not flown south yet.  Look at the low lying clouds in the mountains.
I was able to do some kayaking and stumbled into these mergansers.  They allowed us to get quite close to them.Resized_20181006_121843_9318.jpeg
There was some fall color emerging in places and it definitely was not peak season this weekend here although peak foliage happens in the blink of an eye and it’s over.Resized_20181006_120208_9598-1.jpeg
We went for an invigorating walk on Saturday morning.  I use the word invigorating as the sun was not out and it was chilly enough to wear fleece. But it was so tranquil and remote–my two favorite descriptors any time of year and in any location. Where do you think this road might lead to? I am not telling…squam4
What I wore:
Long burgundy duster by Tahari Women’s clothing (TJ Maxx)
Leather jacket by Leather Limited (Found at consignment shop)
Caramel jacket by Sanctuary Clothing (TJ Maxx)

Booties are by Franco Sarto (and are so comfortable)
