the fountain of youth

Today was a wonderful day. Everything seemed to go my way. Work was bearable, my bestie came back from her trip and we went out for coffee, I finally bought the September issue of Vogue as well as finding 5 pairs of patterned tights all for $21. I also got some lovely gifts, one of them being a fashion book, another a pretty lilac coloured shirt, and some other little items. Even the weather seemed to cooperate with me. It's rather cool outside, but exactly perfect for me. It's not too cold yet, so I can still wear skirts with no tights, but at the same time I can wear tights and not be hot. It's become really noticeable how fast fall is coming but I'm anticipating the coming months with the falling leaves, and the autumn celebrations. I can't wait until I can go buy a pumpkin and walk along the street with the colourful leaves swirling around me, the sun shining bright, yet the air cool with the fresh autumn scent. Autumn is my most favourite time of year, yet it's also quite short, therefore, this year I'm glad I'll be able to document each day on my blog.

oh I love your shirt! its so beautiful! And I love the background, that building has a pretty architecture. And Autumn, how I miss it! Unfortunately I never get to see it since this tropical island is a never ending summer :(, But I'm crazy to live in a cold country. BTW Canada is so pretty!
P.S: Good luck on your uni life!! Keep up the excellent work!

Love the detail on your blouse, it's beautiful. I truly do not await fall with that same excitement. Usually all seasons look the same in the tropics, it's always hot and sticky.
