Bye Bye Autumn

wool trench coat

These photos were taken only a week ago… Since then we’ve had some snow, and it’s significantly colder now. But I decided to post these photos anyway.

Because these are the last autumn pictures for 2016. Yep, from now on it’s going to be winter: cold, dark, dreary… for months and months…

Oh crap. I hate winter.

And that’s why I’m posting these pictures, even though there’s nothing special about them. It’s not even much of an outfit. And I look really tired, as if I hadn’t slept for a week. Or maybe that’s just what a middle-aged woman looks like when she’s been sleeping too little and working way too much. And she’s having one of those ‘I-have-nothing-to-wear‘ moments. Or ‘I’m-too-fat-and-tired‘ moments. One or the other, maybe both. Doesn’t really matter, they sort of look the same.

This is it: so long, autumn! I will miss you! You went by so fast, I had hardly time to enjoy the brief moment we had. And it will be a whole year before we’ll meet again. It’s tough, but I’m going to have to get you out of my mind now, and get ready for winter. Now, we both know that’s never going to be a match made in heaven, but I’ll make the most of it.

Are you getting ready for winter?

    You crack me up. I hate winter too. Lucky for us this year we are having an amazing spring. I took the pug for her walk today in a t-shirt. Yeah…I better not brag too much, I'm going to jinx myself.bisousSuzanne

      Enjoy it while it lasts. Seriously, love every minute. We both know that winter is unavoidable, and we have no illusions about it.

    I love the colors. And the happy expression on your face. Looks like Autumn came and went in a New York minute here.

      Yes, it was over so soon… Or maybe I was just too busy to fully enjoy it.

      Thanks! It's an old scarf, can't remember where I got it. But it's cashmere, so it's also quite warm.

    I can't really say I hate winter, but it's definitely not my fave season! But at least you added in some print mixing—might as well have fun with all of the layers!
