Come September 1st, it doesn’t matter what the mercury says: it’s autumn, and it’s gonna act like it. Even if it’s too warm yet for swing coats and tasseled loafers, I’m officially done with summer’s whimsy. I’m all about sedate cuts, luxe hats, and my god, the textures. My brown velvet hat and tapestry bag are old favorites in that department. They add a little roughness to a sky(e)-blue dress. As for the dress itself – I’m pleased that my 1940s Molly Goldberg adapts so well from spring to fall.
Can you tell how hard I’m feeling blue and brown lately?
I took these photos after a doctor’s appointment and before heading home to crash. I was already running on far too little sleep, and getting blood drawn always exhausts me. I look put together in these shots, but I was running on the absolute last of the battery – I ended up sleeping for thirteen hours when I got home!
