i'm a such a sucker for the added accessories that chilly weather allows. and yep, still love boots beyond any sane resemblance of material obsessions. a while back i posted a collection of chelsea boots that were all calling my name and naturally i eschewed all of those options in favor of these gorgeous foot companions. i have incredibly narrow feet and when i stumble across a pair of boots that fit like a nice, tight sock (remind me to tell you about my childhood sock exploits - aka the period of my childhood that my dad calls "the worst time of his life") i fall head over heels, pun intended.

this sweet little burgundy hat was originally purchased for the purpose of 1) keeping the sun off my face at the hardly strictly blue grass festival in sf and 2) because i just like owning lots of hats. but i am very much enjoying the color this fall and low and behold it covers my head nicely when i just don't want to do much more than comb my hair over one shoulder and call it a day.

but see how well it worked here too

days go by

i have not been the most responsible blogger lately. i've been too busy being a responsible everything else. between a really chaotic quarter at school (i feel like i bring a whole new meaning to super senior), working, and trying to keep up with daily usual, i feel like there is very little room for anything else in my life lately. which truthfully makes me feel a little incomplete and a lot frustrated. subsisting on things like venti pumpkin spice lattes and whatever can be thrown together in 20 minutes or less for dinner doesn't exactly inspire lots of solid rest and down time either so things like blogging, staying in touch with friends and family and a growing pile of errands along with a growing pile of "to-dos" keep nagging at the base of my head.

oof. whiny, huh? well, it is all about balance i guess, and sometimes in order to reach a balance point, you must first teeter around on the edges a bit. meanwhile i find refuge in old and new favorites. i can't seem to bother myself to do more than pull out the comfiest of clothes and stick to the basics. jeans, boots of some sort, vintage jewelry plus a watch to constantly keep me on track. oh! but the new edition of this gorgeous vintage leather bag! this thing takes the cake. all cakes. i want cake. it's huge, fits a laptop plus books plus an endless amount of cords, camera, etc, etc. my neighbor bought it in italy many years ago and decided to part with it at her (incredible) yard sale. my happy, happy gain.
