i'm trying my best this year to transition into fall gracefully. i mean, i do like fall, i really do. it's just that damn winter thing. but that's not graceful, i take back the damn. excuse me, sorry. instead i'll just think about things like soup, and baking bread, and tights (in navy of course), and boots. i'd like to get my hands on a good skirt, maybe corduroy? i was looking in the closet yesterday and realized i have a sad collection of denim skirts that fall short of the perfect ideal i have in my head. a pencil skirt that is too tight, a regular jean skirt that is too big and a mini that i don't think i'll wear. but all of this is pointless right now because kansas city is having some of the best indian summer weather ever right now. 70's during the day and 50's at night. if this is the way you are going to treat me autumn, well then i'm yours. almost.
