Under the Yellow Tree

November 4, 2011

This tree has since dropped every single one of these pretty yellow leaves. I was hoping they’d hang on for longer, but I think the snowstorm wasn’t too kind to the leaves this year.

The changing seasons always remind me of wabi-sabi (the fleetingness of all things). Fall is the only season I’ve never seen in Japan and I’d love to go and stay for the entire season. I imagine it’s even more beautiful than winter and spring. All the red maple trees must look amazing.

Anthropologie sweater, MM Couture dress, MIA boots, Coach bag (vintage), Talbots scarf, tree necklace (grandmother’s).

Yesterday’s Gone

This is what I ended up wearing on my birthday.  It’s a relatively new dress, been worn a few times but never made it in front of the camera.  I still haven’t decided if I like the draping thing in front of the skirt yet… should I sew it up into the waistband?  Does it look sort of Roman or just sort of apron (although aprons are big at Anthropologie right now)?
