Yep. A while ago I was mourning the arrival of a damp and dreary autumn…but not any more! It’s December! Time for snowy landscapes and wonderful warm winter wear. Oh, and posing in said wonderful warm winter wear up against those snowy landscapes. Nothing like a change in the weather to inspire one’s muse once again!

Fernanda hair from Truth (group gift)

I think I can stop hoping that summer is still trying to stick around. The weather has definitely changed around here- it seems to have gone from warm and sunny to grey and wet overnight! All in all, though, I don’t mind too much…while a spell of of warmth and sun is always welcomed, I do so enjoy autumn. The leaves turn brilliant colours, the earth is well hydrated once more, and I get to overdose on all things pumpkin while snuggling up in front of my fireplace.
The only thing that leaves me a bit flat is the dullness of the city. When the skies are grey and there’s rain in the air, there no denying that all that concrete does nothing to stir the imagination. That may be why red is such a favourite colour to wear this time of year, because it is so delightfully defiant of all that grey! Black and red are a nice contrast to the monochrome, and cooler temperatures are a nice excuse to dust off the hats and boots.

“I left my love, by the gassworks wall
Dreamed a dream, by the old canal
I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town…”
– The Pogues
…and dot your T’s!
No, wait. That’s not right. Is it? Well, even if it’s not, at least something is being dotted! Things be dotty all over the place here. The Banded Dotty top and Spotted Tiered skirt are among recent offerings from Sanura Snowpaw at Somnia, and all the spots and dots and lovely colour combinations have me smiling ever so much.
I had a terrible time trying to choose footwear…sandals? My sneakers? Finally I decided simply to paint my toes and go barefoot. It’s easy to be cute and feel entirely guilt free about it in this little outfit, trust me. I would suggest porting your pixels to Somnia to experience the cuteness in person!

…that you want, if there’s anything I can do
Just call on me and I’ll send it along
WITH LOVE from me to you…
(With apologies to The Beatles for that shameless theft of their song lyrics.)
Even though Autumn is my favourite season, even the most avid fancier of earth tones needs a little snazz once in a while. How fortunate- and timely- that Somnia is involved in CHIC Management’s With Love ❤ Hunt! The little 'Velvet Shimmer' dress is just in time for any weekend holiday parties you've got planned as well. Add some shiny jewelry and flashy makeup and POP! Me? I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go (at least for the moment) but if that last minute emergency party pops up, I'll be prepared because I don't plan on de-snazzing myself any time soon.
