Apparently if you blink, entire seasons disappear. Where did autumn go? Here is a November recap.
Jacket: Old Navy. Cardigan: LandsEnd. Dress: Target. Boots: LL Bean
My friend, Heyni, recently did another closet purge. Lucky me! Out of the heap I scored this classic grey cotton trench from Old Navy. The grey goes with everything and can dress things up or down. One of my students informed me that this outfit is very "Autumn in New York." I'll take it!
Autumn is not complete without a trip to the pumpkin patch and corn maze. I love how the playing field is leveled and everyone is "allowed" to act like a kid. Normally I don my flannel and grubby jeans but this year I decided to class it up. Partly because my pinched nerve is still giving me pain and there wasn't going to be any running around in the maze for me.
Sweater: Gift from Mom. Orange Shirt: Kohl's. Jeans: From a friend. Socks: Target. Boots: LL Bean. Purse: Thrifted. Scarf: Plato's Closet.
And now....out with the orange and in with the red. In two weeks the two huge Christmas concerts with my high school kids will be over. Time to take a deep breath and hit the ground running. December is bittersweet for musicians seeing as this is our busiest month of the year. But soon the concerts will be over, I get to sneak in a quick trip to Chicago, and then I'll be relaxing with my family around the tree, watching White Christmas.
After wearing black stretchy pants for the past 2 months (due to my back/leg injury), I'm looking forward to busting out some fancy and festive holiday attire. Farewell, Sweet Autumn, and Greetings, Winter Wonderland!
