Heading for Halloween: Is it Cold Yet?


I watched quite a few Halloween movies this past weekend on the Hallmark channel and I loved all the fall colors, cozy, warm sweaters and other "fallness" I got to see.





Is it cold yet where you are?

It's rarely really cold here until the end of the month, believe it or not. So the warm season is the longest of our year and starts long before I expect it to, ending long after I am ready for sweater weather. Not to mention the deeper, warmer colors of fall. But we'll get there...

Meanwhile, here's some orange inspiration for the all of us experiencing the inbetween season...




Pardon the lack of makeup that day! Here's something else to inspire you. I just put it on for the first time today because (yay!), it was cold this morning.







(Pardon the mirror! The maid hasn't gotten to it yet.)

Does it feel like summer is well and truly over yet for you? It's the cold weather that really makes it sink in for me! And today's temps were a good sign, but I think we owe them to the Northeast's current weather situation more than the genuine of our fall here. Ah, well.

Enjoy Halloween week!

I am linking up today with BonBonRoseGirls for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, and to Melaina at Transatlantic Blonde for What I Wore Wednesday.

  1. I know, our warm season is nine months long, too! But like you, I really enjoy wearing a sweater and some cozy tights for a few months. Thanks for linking up with Visible Monday, Jeanine, and have a great day.
