Dear Katha,

Lately it’s been scorching hot stateside, though luckily there have been one or two occasional cool days. Without those I might turn into a blob of goo for the summer and not reform until October and our lovely fall season returns.

I’ve been trying to go lighter lately, so I’ve been taking just a small bag (or what passes for small for me) with the bare minimum of things I need. …

Look at all this beautiful snow! I actually love snow… and cold weather. I think I must have been a penguin in my last life. Snow makes for good lighting and background, don’t you think?

I’ve needed snow boots for five years, and of course the year I finally get them would be one of the mildest winters ever– remember al fresco dining in no coat in December?. But they’re warm and I might actually have them forever because L.L. Bean will guarantee them. I also used them to try the Boot Straps I won from a giveaway on Adored Austin (thanks Indiana!). I haven’t tested anything else from the Hollywood Fashion Secrets Jean Kit yet, but these were great and I can see myself using them with a ton my boots.

I’m wearing my Vivienne Vivienne Tam faux fur vest (c/o a gift card from T.J. Maxx), J.Crew cardigan (2010), Target shirt (swapped at ModSwap!), LOFT double wrap belt, J Brand jeans (2008), and L.L. Bean boots. The tree necklace belonged to my grandmother, and these pretty earrings were made by Lydia for Pay it Forward.

Double Stripes and Yellow Leaves

Playing with this scarf is fun! It’s very soft and floaty, but still warm. These are some more photos from before, when there were still leaves on the trees and it wasn’t flooding. Sad that it’ll be months and months until the leaves grow back.

I put my hair up for the first time in a while. I actually don’t mind it up, but I do feel like it makes anything I’m wearing about eleventy billion times more formal. What do you think, too much? Although the formal air is not as pronounced when I’m wearing pants. In a dress or skirt, however… I often feel too done.

And yes, that’s a leaf in my hair. I’ve recently been bringing things from outside inside, like pine cones and the wispy tails of tall grass that I find lying on the ground. And somehow that evolved to wearing nature in my hair. I’m a weirdo.

Oh wait, one more thing! I want to share this Feminist Fashion Bloggers post by Ekaterina Sedia. It’s the best piece I’ve read all month.

…and Happy Thanksgiving, U.S. readers!
